And another country, South Africa,  legalising the personal use and growing of cannabis. First country in Africa. The movement is real. And unfortunately our out of touch mhk are missing the boat on this. 

a multitude of countries are now legalising the dreaded weed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What this? Can't be having a drug that makes humans feel more empathy and love towards their fellow humans. Let's ban it make it classA and give ot to octopi instead. Humans need to stick to alcohol to bring out the best in them.

Manx Radio News

So, according to a FOI request, only 9% of drug raids last year led to an arrest. (Not a conviction, just an arrest).   With 5 officers (and vehicles and dogs) attending every raid that’s quite a large amount of money spent for a relatively small return. If the police were a private business they’d soon be going bankrupt!

You've got that wrong ecobob,  45% involved an arrest, only 9% resulted in actual charges.

Tell that to the increasing number of parents who have lost their kids as a result of the kids taking them.

Do you mean like Mr Lakeman from the IOM, who lost two sons from taking 'ecstacy' tablets and now has campaigned as far as the house of commons for these drugs to be legalised so it's safer for young people (who will ALWAYS experiment) to take them. 

I tend to listen to the views of people with first hand experience of these issues such as Mr Lakeman rather than silly out of touch racist twats....

I agree wholeheartedly but what has racism got to do with this?
