Cannabis: legal in the UK this year or any time soon?

talking local government

Release Date: 01/31/2019

This wide ranging discussion provides an excellent primer for those vaguely aware of, for example, legalization in Canada and some states in the US, the row about medical use of cannabis, and reports of police services these days ‘turning a blind eye’.

The conversation covers:

  • Pros and cons of legalization
  • Why many politicians are reluctant to engage with this topic
  • Variations in UK law enforcement around cannabis use
  • Why festival owners are a major barrier to drugs testing schemes
  • Whether legalization is inevitable and will it most likely come from the political left or right?
