Cannabis redux

“A report on cannabis prepared for next year’s UN drug policy review will suggest that a “regulated market” would cause less harm than the current international prohibition. The report, which is likely to reopen the debate about cannabis laws, suggests that controls such as taxation, minimum age requirements and labelling could be explored.” Guardian, 2 October.

Yeah, been there done that while working at Release on a project funded by Rowntree from 1994-1996. It still won’t happen because cannabis law reform is a taboo for the US. And the US controls the UN. Alright?

Link to conference at the House of Lords discussing the report here, today and tomorrow 3 October.
