If you would like to see Cannabis decriminalised in the UK? Please sign the petition and make your vote count today! Present UK laws will just stay the same until enough people come forward and make their voice’s heard. Let’s try at least to put the drug gangs and back street dealers out of business! Enough is enough…
They’ve made enough money out of us. I wonder how many back street dealers have got a nice 50″ TV? How many get to go away on a nice holiday once or even twice a year? Let’s not forget the flashy car’s they come in to drop it off. The list goes on, `believe me.’ Your money is providing back-street dealers with a luxurious life style, illegally, while you’re worrying about where your going to get your next £20 bag from, their counting your hard earned cash planning what to spend it on.
I can bet my bottom dollar that when you deliver your next text message to see if there’s anything available? The dealer on the other end instantly thinks to themselves, yep…that’s another X-amount gone. More money in the pockets for them to continue leaving a life of Riley. `Aren’t you P*SS*D OFF!?’ And fed up of lining the pockets of these people who make out to be your best friend? `I know I am.’ Hence this petition.
If the government sold marijuana itself it could control the strength of the drug – taking production out of the hands of these type of organised criminal gangs and reducing the health risks.
A number of countries have decriminalised cannabis for personal use. None of them have descended into anarchy, so what’s preventing the UK government from following suit? The Conservative government claims to be in favour of evidence-based policies – in rhetoric, at least. Yet, successive UK governments have signed up to the United Nations international drug convention, a convention based on prohibition and the ‘war on drugs’, neither of which have any evidence of working.
In last year’s `Global drug survey’ of the 7,000 participants, 48 per cent reported using cannabis in the last 12 months, and 90 per cent said they had drank alcohol. This means more than half of participants like to have a drink and a smoke. However, the study didn’t tell us how much of our hard-earned cash we spend on either liquor or weed, so here we go.
`Drug-Scope’ found the most common type of cannabis used in England and Wales is skunk, as opposed to hash (resin), which has seen a sharp decline in use since many people started growing their own weed in 2005. In their research, the charity found the average price of a quarter-ounce (7g) of UK skunk is £50. The charity can also help us out with narrowing down how much people smoke.
Researchers found ‘regular users might consume one-eighth of an ounce a week; while heavy and regular cannabis users might use that amount in a day’. So that’s between 3.5g (£25) and 24.5g (£175) per week, depending on whether said smoker is a light or heavy user. This means a light smoker could spend as much as £1,300 a year on their habit, and a heavy smoker could rack up a tab of £9,100. Yes, you read that correctly. So, that’s weed for you. Your hard earned cash providing the dealers with more options to make more and more cash out of you.
“Marijuana is quite possibly the finest of intoxicants. It has been scientifically proven, for decades, to be much less harmful to the body than alcohol when used on a regular basis.” “By regulating marijuana, we can put black market drug dealers out of business and eliminate the rebellious allure that attracts young people.”
It makes me think of a famous quote by the great man himself, the king of (Reggae) “MR Bob Marley,” “Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.” Marijuana saved my life. I have no doubts about that and you don’t need to show me any data to prove otherwise.
`As far as I’m concerned,’ everyone’s got their own form of relaxation, Some folk get home from a hard days work and chillout in the evening with a nice glass of wine or beer perhaps? I prefer a nice hot cuppa tea with a “Biffta.” so… there’s no shame in admitting you like a joint or two. `It doesn’t make you a bad person for smoking it,’ and things can’t be that bad if the Police federation are in favour of decriminalizing.
