Default William Hague calls for legalisation of cannabis

Quote:
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, he said "any war" has been "irreversibly lost".

Lord Hague goes further than senior Tories who have suggested a law change after a boy with epilepsy was given a special licence to use cannabis oil.

Lord Hague said the episode "provides one of those illuminating moments when a longstanding policy is revealed to be inappropriate, ineffective and utterly out of date".

By returning the medicine, the Home Office had "implicitly conceded that the law has become indefensible", he said.

"As far as marijuana, or cannabis, is concerned, any war has been comprehensively and irreversibly lost," he said.

It was "nothing short of deluded" to think the drug could be driven off the streets, and he compared ordering the police to crack down on its use with "asking the army to recover the Empire. This battle is effectively over".

He said the fact that cannabis was both illegal and widely available effectively permitted "the worst of all worlds" to arise: encouraging more potent and dangerous variants of the drug, with users reluctant to seek help.

"The overall result is the rise of a multi-billion pound black market for an unregulated and increasingly potent product, creating more addiction and mental health problems but without any enforceable policy to do something about it.

"The only beneficiaries are organised crime gangs. It is absolutely unacceptable to allow this situation to continue."
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44526156

He's right. Legalising cannabis and probably the other major banned drugs too is now the least worst option. The genie is out of the bottle and it is retarded to spend so much resources on fighting an unwinnable war, which benefits only gangsters.

The amount I use is harmless, I use about once a month on a purely recreational basis. Fine. But what about other people less stable, less educated, less middle-class than me? Builders or blacks for example?

He's right, and tbh I suspect a lot of MPs probably think the same. Not sure where the public come down on it though, there's not much sympathy for drug users out there IMO, we don't really see them as victims and we need to for these kind of decriminalisation/legalisation policies to work. Sadly any kind of policy idea short of chucking them in prison is just seen as soft by daily mail readers.

I remember when heroin clinics were proposed, a lot of mongs on facebook sharing it and having a right problem with it. It all just kept coming back to a zero sum argument. 'WHY DUZ MAH DAD HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS INUSLIN PUMPS BUT THEY GONNA GIVE HEROIN AWAY TO SMACKHEADS. GIVE INSULIN AWAY FOR FREE. WOT NEXT ALCOHOLICS GIVEN FREE BOOZE COUNTRY A JOKE'

If it becomes legal, we should all chip in 5k and start our own shoevomit branded "medication"

Excellent idea.

Quote:
A government spokesman stressed that the existing laws on the recreational use of cannabis would not be changed.

"Any debate within government about the efficacy and therapeutic use of cannabis-based medicines emphatically does not extend to any review regarding the classification of cannabis and the penalties for the illicit possession, cultivation and trafficking of cannabis will remain the same."
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44526156

So what sort of 'democracy' is this? Most of the public would support legalisation, and it would free us from so much crime and disorder which is drugs related (gangs, burglaries, muggings).

But we're not allowed to have this because nanny state knows best. Even when she doesn't.
