See here for the very latest independent research on cannabis in Britain. We can no longer afford this. Cameron's policy...

The Daily Mail And The Press Complaints Commission Sink Deeper Into The Gutter

Murdoch got the News of the World off the hook by the simple expedient of corporate suicide. The Daily Mail is now squarely in the dock alongside its co-conspirator the PCC. These two institutions are directly responsible for falsehood, misinformation, the persecution of individuals and the systematic deception of millions...
