Nanny State? Tabloid Lies? Now, So-Called Reformers Are Doing It For Themselves.

Skunk scaremongering is blossoming again. This time though it's not dire warnings from the Home Office or the Institute of Psychiatry drumming up some new research funding. It's not even the Daily Mail or, more likely these days, the Daily Telegraph, misreporting some obscure study and turning every 'might' and 'may' and 'could' into terrible, scary certainty. No, this time it's the newbie intake of...

Seismic Shift In UK Politics Re-Opens Door To Cannabis Law Reform.

Whichever way you voted in the EU referendum, it has at least opened up all possibilities for cannabis law reform.The dissolution of the coalition government and the unexpected Tory majority last year had really put the block on progress. The Liberal Democrats failed to take the opportunities they had while in government.  So sad that only now they are discredited and decimated in Parliament have they really got their cannabis policy...

The Sickening Cruelty Of UK Drugs Policy.

Hats off to Coronation Street for the fantastic job they are doing on the Izzy and medicinal cannabis story.This storyline is beautifully paced, very powerful, deeply emotional and is doing wonders for the cause of those who need cannabis as medicine.After so many years of disappointment at the way the media have treated this issue, the producers and scriptwriters at Corrie are excelling themselves.  They have shown how cannabis has very real therapeutic benefits, how the law humiliates...

A Real Cannabis Crime.

Out walking my dogs this week I had spotted a black plastic bag dumped by the side of the road  that runs along the crest above my house.  My suspicions were confirmed today when I took a closer look.  It contained two or three rootballs and over the fence, what I hadn't noticed before, were another six or seven bags.  It was the remnants of someone's cannabis grow and it had been left in a remote spot, four or five miles from the closest village, 10 miles from the...
