Rejected petition Explain how cannabis is allowed for profitable medicinal export whilst 'harmful'

Explain to the public how cannabis can be allowed for profitable medicinal export, whilst at the same being such a terrible drug which can only harm users and has no proven medical benefits.

The only way it ruins lives is through the legislation the government have created surrounding it.

More details

We're constantly pushed the agenda that cannabis is this terrible, terrible drug which ruins lives, harms individuals and destroys families, meaning people selling it on the blackmarket, be it for patients medicinal benefits or otherwise, are harshly punished. All the while, companies such as British Sugar are doing exactly the same thing, but with an elite licence.

This is in no way fair to the everyday user, producer or distributor.

Open the market for all and let us enjoy this plant.
