Closed petition Legalise Cannabis for recreational and medicinal purposes

We call for the decriminalisation and legalisation of possession and consumption of cannabis for recreational and medicinal purposes

More details

We also call for release of anyone serving a sentence for cannabis possession/consumption, and for these offenses to be removed from everyone’s UK criminal records

Cannabis causes far fewer deaths than other substances which are legal. In the UK, only 22 people died from cannabis in 2018, while 9,214 people died from alcohol consumption; 419 times more. Alcohol is legal in the UK

Much of the public consume cannabis for recreation, as it can have a calming and uplifting effect. It can also be useful for people with medical conditions, for example, epilepsy, where it can treat seizures

To protect the public, it shouldn’t be legal for use with U-25s and THC content should be limited to 15%
