They’re a bunch of morons so they won’t listen anyways, backwards archaism at its finest the British Government.... The economy is fucked due to Covid.... how to help it.... create thousands of jobs, millions in tax revenue, take the burden off border / customs and police simply by legalising Cannabis but they’re so fucking stupid and blind that no ones even considered it I’d guarantee, a few years ago I thought we were very close and we’re clearly not, only thing anyone seems to acknowledge now is a rally or riot so that’s clearly the path, 100,000 people blazing some herb outside the commons is the only way imo.

Big pharma, booze companies and pub chains like wetherspoons (run by a real asshole, and major conservative party donor) would never let that happen. As long as these lot are in we be struggling.

Money. People with money. Big business. Are the only ones. Politicians will always curtail to their wishes. It's already happening though. The big Green companies in America/Canada are funding the media campaigns at the moment (oil for sick kids, CBD etc.) The Tories moved pretty quickly from staunchly objecting to rushing through legislation. The weed leaf motif is moving from "hippy symbol" to "health symbol" pretty quickly. It's no longer just the cheap bandanas, lighters or t-shirts. It's in supermarkets, pound shops, vape shops, health food shops, it's pervasive. Plant plastics, climate benefits, hemp cottons, CBD products, food stuffs, the list goes on of the advantages. Soon enough the image of the "Chong" style stoner with the weed t-shirt and the massive joint aren't the symbol and the benefits can't be ignored. That's when change will happen and we're almost there. A few more steps along the road is decriminilisation.

I am 43 years old and people have been telling me since I was 15 it would be soon. I honestly do not see it happening in my lifetime. It would solve a lot of our problems in this country but on the other hand we would not get to look forward to our trips to more enlightened countries.As has been already said alcohol and pharma, "dealers" would not allow it imo.

Remind me to come back to this topic in 25 years or so, when we'll be no closer.

I have an idea for a petition to make weekly drug tests mandatory for all MPs. Failing the test to result in immediate sacking, as well as being prohibited for life from holding any position in government. If nothing else I imagine we'd see coke legalised in a matter of minutes.
