Brighton cannabis club scouts for unofficial dope speakeasies

Cannabis activists hope to work with Green Party politicians to lobby for a change to the law, Brighton’s first cannabis club meeting heard.

The legalisation campaigners will hold a Green Pride march and demonstration in Brighton and Hove this summer.

They also want to find sympathetic venues in the “liberal city” that will allow advocates to smoke and socialise in private.

Scott free in cannabis case blunder

A Dundee man accused of cultivating cannabis in his flat has escaped prosecution after an apparent “blunder” by the Crown.

The Courier has learned that a decision to reduce an indictment to a less serious summary complaint has resulted in the case being timebarred.

The Crown has confirmed that John Steven Brown, of Kemnay Gardens, will not face a court, stating that, after “full and careful consideration of the facts”, it will not proceed with the case against him.

Drugs campaigner to open 'cannabis cafe' in Manchester

Colin Davies - once jailed for drug trafficking and famous for handing over a bouquet of flowers containing cannabis to the Queen - is heading for another collision with the authorities after announcing his intention to open The New Way Cafe on Tariff Street in January.

He said cannabis wouldn't be traded on the property although members would be invited to bring their own drugs for personal consumption.

Possession and supply of cannabis remains against the law despite long-standing campaigns to legalise the drug.

If our politicians were brave enough, or even simply rational, they would follow Uruguay's lead and legalise cannabis

It's a policy that would be a hammer blow to criminal gangs. It would stop criminalising non-violent people, drastically undermine racist policing, be good for people's health and it would save lives. But while a mainstream British politician is more likely to have smoked cannabis than to propose its legalisation, the courageous Uruguayan government has done just that.

Uruguay made a pragmatic choice. It could continue to leave cannabis production and sale in the hands of violent criminal gangs, or the state could take it over and regulate it properly. “A regulated market that is visible has greater oversight than prohibition,” as Diego Canepa, the president of the Uruguay's National Drug Board, has put it. Uruguayans who register on a national database can buy up to 40g of pot from a pharmacy, and adults are now allowed to grow up to eight marijuana plants each.

British Police Hire Equipment To Test Drivers For Cannabis

A simple swab test, being used across the county from today, will help police to catch drivers who have been taking cannabis.

Normally, if officers suspect somebody of being under the influence, they have to use a ‘field impairment assessment’.

This involves looking at the driver’s eyes, and testing their balance and co-ordination.
