UK POT HEADS, SIGN THIS
    #623646 - 05/20/12 07:44 AM (4 years, 6 months ago)

Petition: https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/29
Source: http://www.marijuana.com/threads/gbr-british-cannabis-laws-downgraded-27th-february.294108/

Well kind of. Police force numbers across the country are at an all time low , having fallen by over 6000 in the last year and clearly something has to give as the thin blue line is drawn even thinner by slashing cuts to enforcement budgets. In certain quarters, even amongst the rank and file, cannabis is that 'something.



ACPO drugs lead and Humberside Chief Constable Tim Hollis
At The Association of chief Police Officers (ACPO) the UK's lead on drug enforcement (Chief Constable Tim Hollis) has already said the budget cuts had forced police to prioritise resources towards tackling organised crime rather than individuals carrying drugs for personal use. Mr Hollis should be applauded for having the courage to say what almost every politician knows. Prohib-ition simply doesn't work.

Sign the government petition to force the full cannabis legalisation debate in the House of Commons - Legalise cannabis - e-petitions

He continued, "We would rather invest our time in getting high-level criminals before the courts, taking money off them and removing their illicit gains rather than targeting young people. We don't want to criminalise young people because, put bluntly, if we arrest young kids for possession of cannabis and put them before the courts we know what the outcome's going to be, so actually it's perfectly reasonable to give them words of advice or take it off them."

So in a move which mirrors many American 'lowest law enforcement priority' initiatives, cannabis will, from the 27th February 2012, be essentially decriminalised in all but name.

Peter Reynolds from Cannabis Law Reform organisation CLEAR-UK put it far more succinctly whilst baiting the Daily Mails cannabis anti-christ Peter Hitchens recently;

Peter Hitchen. You are right. It is happening. From 27th February, if you are growing fewer than nine plants, particularly if you can demonstrate a medicinal use, then you are looking at a discharge, low level fine or, at worst, a low level community order.

The CPS will not be interested. Therefore the police will not be interested.

Effectively, this is decriminalisation of small time, own use only, cultivation of cannabis. It is wonderful news! You can be sure that CLEAR will be doing all it can to inform people and spread this wonderful news far and wide.

Aside from the restoration of liberty, disgracefully proscribed for 80 years, now those who need cannabis as medicine, whose lives are transformed by its pallliative and restorative therapy, will have access to their medicine without fear of jail.

These are wonderful developments, long overdue on grounds of justice, mercy and human rights. The truth about cannabis is CLEAR!”

Peter Reynolds, Weymouth, UK

Now we just need some outlines from the law enforcement community over what is acceptable in the eyes of the law, and we're already well on our way to a more sensible policy on drugs in general and cannabis in particular.
