1. Cannabis is a 100% natural substance that has been used by humans for at least 10,000 years with zero deaths.

2. Cannabis is used to treat and cure many ailments from MS, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease (100% of sufferers’ symptoms go into remission), arthritis, depression, schizophrenia (to name but a few) with minimal side effects and huge health benefits.

3. It plays a vital role in every living human being’s endocannabinoid system, clinging to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and other organs.

4. The only places we can obtain cannabinoids (which our body requires) are in our mother’s breast milk and the cannabis plant, hence why it stays in our system for up to 9 months.

5. Cannabis is safer than alcohol, tobacco, cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, amphetamines, over the counter drugs, paracetamol, ibuprofen and even driving a car.

6. Studies have proven cannabis users are safer drivers, more so than non users.

7. Cannabis is a non addictive substance, it is only habit forming. What makes an addict is when it is mixed with tobacco.

8. Where cannabis is legal, alcohol consumption drops, relieving a huge strain on medical services. Use among children is at its lowest and abuse of the substance is not common.

9. Cannabis is only dangerous because of prohibition. Cash croppers spray with fibreglass and sand to make it weigh more. They do not flush out any chemicals they use to feed the plant. Regulating the market is what makes it safest.

10. The British press, the alcohol and tobacco lobbies, the government and GW Pharmaceuticals are all to blame for the foul slander and reefer madness propaganda surrounding Mother Nature. British policy on cannabis is not related to scientific fact.
