Petition Launch an inquiry into the possible link between cannabis and violence

Cannabis is a common factor in an alarming number of violent crimes, including murder, rape and child abuse, as well as suicide. As calls for the legalisation of cannabis grow ever louder, we demand the government first investigate the possible link between cannabis and violence.

More details

As documented in this blog,, cannabis is a common factor in hundreds of violent crimes that have occurred in the UK and Ireland in the past two decades.
