A man convicted of growing cannabis has failed in a High Court bid to have the drug granted equal classification with alcohol and tobacco

on . Posted in Northern Ireland Cannabis News

Reading about this case (Cannabis campaign legal bid failure - U.TV) has been a very useful exercise indeed! James Torrens-Spence is to be commended for running this, and whilst he didn’t nail it exactly, we can see from what he has said, and what the judge has said, why this attempt failed.

OK – So, I am not having a go at James, but this is a very common mistake that the judge seized upon:

“He argued that the Class B drug should have parity with both alcohol and tobacco.”
