Rejected petition Legalise medicinal and recreational Cannabis in the UK
Discuss and hold a vote in Parliament on the legalisation of medicinal and recreational cannabis.
The legalisation of cannabis would have multiple benefits. Some are listed below:
- Regulation ensures the safety of cannabis users.
- Decreased criminal convictions related to cannabis.
- Taxation = government revenue.
- The undeniable medicinal benefits of cannabis.
- Allows freedom of liberty.
- Increased tourism.
These are the main reasons as to why the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use should occur.
