More experts call for legalisation of Cannabis

A leading doctors journal it is reported today in the Telegraph has called for Cannabis to be sold openly in shops along side Tobacco and Alcohol.  The British Medical Journal says that banning the drug is just not working.  It quotes stats that an 18 fold increase in budget for enforcement between 81 and 2002 in the USA had failed to close the market for the drug.  There is no reason to think that the UK is any different.

With tax revenues desperately needed in the UK and cost cutting a must the new government could get a double hit with a cut in policing costs and increase in taxation. Tempting?  I doubt if they would be brave enough, there are to many over 50 voters and not enough under to make it worth the political risk.  However give us another 10 years and another new voting generation.....
