Gordon Brown looks set to ignore scientific advice and upgrade cannabis next week. There is no official word from Downing Street, but Brown dropped heavy hints to that traditional home of serious political debate, GMTV. The government's panel of advisors, the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, gave its report to Home …

Well said that man!
I've been smoking for over thirty years, and in all that time none of my friends have died from "lethal" skunk or any other form of cannabis. A few from cancer, heart disease, stroke, and liver failure. All caused or aggravated by legal drugs.
Our Dutch friends have a well regulated, well policed way of "dealing" with the problem of cannabis...
Most Dutch towns of any size have at least one coffee shop, usually more than one. No fights on a weekend, no being sick in the street. A very civilised, sensible, and well informed country.
Compare to good old U.K. Underground supply chain, links to organised crime, adulterated weed and other drugs, massive police effort to control supply and use, record numbers of users etc. etc.
Legalisation of ALL drugs, with proper controls is the only sensible route. Coupled with proper education obviously.
Gordon Frown, like most politicians, is a reactionary media puppy. With a major downer on people enjoying themselves. Just because he's a miserable git, it doesn't mean we all have to be.....
Despotism is the correct name for this latest outrage against freewill, as pointed out previously.
The one with the passport, and a one way ticket outta this shit-hole that was once a pleasant place to live.
Last man out, please turn off the lights and put the cat out.
Despot Frown goes against the grain. Again!
Just been announced on BBC Radio 4 that Gordon Frown has indeed chosen to ignore the recommendations of his scientific advisors, the ACMD, and reclassify cannabis, (all sorts, not just the super strong hybrid grasses). as class "B". So how does this get in to law, without the approval of the Houses of Parliament?
Let's hope that plod has the sense to see through this tabloid politiking, and continue to ignore reasonable users and home growers.
2,000,000+ users can't all be wrong! Shirley?
What is HE on?
The one with the passport, a few bars of soap, a packet of seeds, and a one way ticket outta this shit-hole that is fast becoming a JOKE!
