This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

We're not sure exactly what you'd like the Government or Parliament to do.

We understand that you want the Government to review how cannabis is treated, but it's not clear what action you would like the Government to take to achieve this. Cannabis is a Class B controlled drug the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, but the Government also bans and restricts a range of herbal ingredients.

You could start a petition calling for the Government to hold a referendum on declassifying cannabis, if that is what you would like to happen.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
