    Legal Status

    Cannabis Law Reform (CLEAR) is a political party. We are not presently registered with the Electoral Commission as we are not currently intending to contest any elections.

    Peter Reynolds is the party leader and Roland Gyallay-Pap is the party treasurer.

    CLEAR has adopted the Electoral Commission’s model financial scheme.  The CLEAR financial scheme is reproduced in full here.

    Equal Opportunities

    We believe it is essential to CLEAR’s principles, productivity,  and efficacy to enable activists of all backgrounds to reach their  full potential by encouraging an environment that is inclusive to all. To this end, and within the framework and spirit of the law, we are committed to achieving and maintaining a support and activist  base which broadly reflects the community at large.

    CLEAR whole-heartedly supports the principle of equal opportunities and opposes all forms of unlawful or unfair  discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, disability, age, religious belief, sexual  orientation or marital status. We welcome people who support cannabis law reform from whatever cultural, ethnic or political backgrounds, be they cannabis users or not.

    We believe that it is in CLEAR’s best interests and of all those who work as part of it, to attract, retain and develop a diverse  pool of activists and supporters. Every possible step will be taken to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly, and members are invited to raise concerns with us if they feel an infringement to this policy has been made. Members found to be in violation of the CLEAR equal opportunities policy will face suspension and ultimately expulsion form the party.


    These are the members of the Executive Committee.
