License Cannabis Sales Expert Says

Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 6th 2010 by THCFinder

Policymakers should consider allowing the licensed sale of cannabis for recreational use, says one of the UK's leading researchers of the drug. Professor Roger Pertwee is going to speak his mind at a speech at the British Science Association in Birmingham. He is expected to say amazing solutions have to be considered because he believes the current policy of criminalizing cannabis is ineffective. But the government continues to insist that decriminalization the drug would not work and only make things more difficult.

 

 

The dismissal last year of Professor David Nutt as the previous government's leading drugs adviser showed it was in no mood to consider relaxing the status of cannabis as an illegal class B drug. It is a view which is also shared by the United kingdom’s current government. But Prof Pertwee, an expert on cannabis-like chemicals, is to tell scientists that he, like Professor Nutt, believes it is a policy that is doing more harm than good Professor Pertwee discusses legalizing certain forms of cannabis. "I'm talking about harm minimization," Professor Pertwee said. Professor Pertwee continued to say "At the moment there is an awful lot of harm caused by what we have at the moment, with children going to a drug dealer or they try and grow it themselves and then they get into troublewith the law."
