Lost battle

Recommended Posts

As a trial for the legalisation of cannabis all the swag siezed should be divided up into £100 lots, not police prices, and sold. You should have to register, and sign a disclaimer saying you'll store it out of the way of kids, smoke it in private etc. The money raised should be split 33% Police for the costs of running the scheme, 33% to motiv8/any other charity focusing on drug trouble and 33% good causes directly benefiting the young. Just to see if society can handle people having some legal weed. If it collapses then fine, keep itillegal, you were right all along, and if everything goes super smooth then sort it out properly.

It’s certainly a starting point. Why have the police running the scheme though?

Isn’t that what happens informally anyway?

Isn't the legalisation of cannabis about the 'medicinal grade', that is, without the hallucinogen component?

Because they've got the gear. They're doing their job in conducting the busts, regardless of how stupid the law is, so they can have a 3rd of the take. Add it to their overtime budget or something.

No. You can already buy cannabis products, CBD oil which apparently has some medical effects. Proper medical marijuana though is simply good weed. The whole medical thing, as proved by what has happened in the US is a sham, designed to bring full legalisation in when everyone gets a medical card anyway. Just skip the medical step and legalise it ffs.

It's well known that governments all over the world allow drugs to enter their countries and even facilitate it in many cases. The Isle of Man is no different, nor is the reason for it: to criminalise a permanent underclass as part of their social control.

Which part? Because the fact that governments throughout the world facilitate the international drug trade is a matter of public record.

I wasn't singling out the Isle of Man. It's a worldwide thing.
