Legalise Cannabis! ... ... ...

At least that's what William Haig advocated this morning citing that the war on cannabis has been lost and that it would be safer to have the quality controlled by the government.

This of course is on the back of the new Home Secretary permitting a one off medicinal use and announcing a revue of it's medical use.

Driving with Cannabis:

Late one night I was driving up the M1 to see some friends at Loudwater.

I was pulled over by the Police and wound down my window.

"Sorry Officer" I said. "I'm sure I wasn't speeding."

"No" he said "You were driving at 4 mph!"

*Legal or not cannabis is smoked and grown on every street in every village, town and city in Britain, *

Whether it is right or wrong the police have seem to have given up on it anyway so better they spend their time on things like knife crime or acid throwers in my opinion.

.."so better they spend their time on things like knife crime"

...and here is the rub, it is the dealers of cannabis (and other drugs) who are stabbing each other.

it is the dealers of cannabis (and other drugs) who are stabbing each other.

If that is the case then let it be but I do not think all stabbings are drug related or moped riders throwing acid are all drug dealers.

Controlled medicinal use, yes.

Recreational use? I'm not sure that creating s society in which an assumption is made that people need narcotics in order to be happy is a good thing. We already have two legal substances - tobacco and alcohol - which can bring misery along with pleasure.

Perhaps that's enough, at least until there is reliable information about the long-term effects of unrestricted Cannabis use.

The Alabama three made a reasonable point about alternative ways of being happy when they sang:-

*"Cause the righteous truth is, there ain't nothing worse than Some fool lying on some Third World beach wearing Spandex, psychedelic trousers, smoking damn dope Pretending he gettin' consciousness expansion. I want Consciousness expansion, I go to my local tabernacle An' I sing with the brothers and sisters"*

F.E. Controlled medicinal use, yes.

Then I will make sure I am first in the cue.

It will be a long queue, and that's the problem. GPs would have the task of sorting the genuine cases from the bandwagon jumpers, and they would be inundated.

I must have missed this posting first time around and have only just spotted it.

We have just returned from a weekend with the family in Preston and whilst there the subject of cannabis oil cropped up as the son-in-law has started to use it in an effort to alleviate the pain of his rheumatoid arthritis. Fran, my dear wife has stoically put up with chronic degeneration of the spine for a good many years relying on a codeine and paracetamol as prescribed, shunning surgery and lasering of nerves in her back etc, etc.

I'll get to the point she tried the oil, one drop under her tongue, morning and evening and by Sunday evening she was 'pain free' - admittedly the cannabis oil was obtained from a herbalist friend of the s-i-l and probably had less additives in it, I don't know but it worked .We have ordered some and hope it get get here quickly as her pain has now returned and its back to the old regime.

There's probably a local delivery service available via a dodgy looking geezer on a bike...
