U.K. - Cannabis passes last legal hurdle
    #2106275 - 11/14/03 02:26 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)


Cannabis passes last legal hurdle
13 November 2003
Cannabis will be downgraded to a Class C "non-arrestable" drug on 29 January.

The reform to the Criminal Justice Bill was rubber-stamped by the House of Lords last night.

The move from Class B was approved by 63 votes to 37, and puts cannabis in the same category as anabolic steroids, benzodiazepines and the "date rape" drug GHB.

It means that in most cases police will no longer have the power to arrest users for possession.

However, in a show of cross-party concern, peers also backed an amendment warning that the change may "risk the health of young people".

I'm moving outta the US as soon as I can, I bet the US will be the last to decriminalize pot. We have a long standing history of greed, ignorance, and belligerence. Other countries seem much more open to change, yet we still ignore the truth. A few great leaders and America could become the great country that it was supposed to be.
