I find it strange this topic is so rarely on the political agenda in the UK and that there is no party openly in favour of it, seems bizarre to be less liberal than the USA on anything but we are when it comes to this. There isn't even a high profile pressure group I am aware of in the UK (when I say high profile I mean well known, like the CND for example).

What do people think?

Seems like an odd thing for the government/police to bother about and waste any resource on in my opinion. Logically legalising is surely a better option as then you cut down all the police/court resource, you take out the organised crime element and you get to tax and regulate it so you actually get money in rather than it going out.

For something that grows naturally in the ground with no refinement needed to it to smoke it. I can't see any reason for it to be illegal

This seems to be one of them topics which whenever it comes up, politicians seem to go into some sort of "THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!" panic mode rather than actually think it through.

Absolutely crazy that it hasn't been legalised already. Weed is brilliant.

It should be treated like tobacco or alcohol and taxed to the hilt. If some wee fud wants to sit on their sofa all day smoking then I'd rather not have to pay for the prison bill when they get caught.

It's political suicide for a politician to endorse legalisation. Sad really as its such a simple issue. Of course it should be legal

But it shouldn't be though because the arguements in favour seem overwhelming.

Should be legal. Alot of the public would go mental if it was legalised though.

Why?

It should be legal and all taxes raised go to reducing personal tax. So the more you smoke the more you save, simples...man :)

It should be legal but the public would lose it. As domdom says it be all THINK OF THE CHILDREN and all that crap. If some junkie wants to get high on it then they should be allowed. Its their choice what they want to do with their life

Yes it shouldn't be. But it is

No serving politician will take the lead with it.

Like I said its a simple issue, but it won't happen

There is no doubt, and absolutely no legitimate argument, against any existing drug being illegal. Certainly not one as benign as marijuana. It's a failure of our political system that's its not legal, and a failure of society, really.

Our prime minister admits to consuming it, yet passes laws putting those who possess cannabis in prison for up to 5 years...

Don't you know, what he smoked was the harmless type, now everyone smokes a highly dangerous strain, touch it and you get instant psychophrenia. Edited by parsforlife

Weed's shit. I'm not surprised people move onto the better variety of narcotic, further up the chain. The class system used for drugs is directly proportional, as to how good it is.

The term weed is appropriate, I can't get rid of the stuff.

Just cut down a couple of plants and chucked them on the bonfire - the neighbour's chooks have the munchies now.
