Tories to reverse UK cannabis reform
    #2261877 - 01/22/04 03:47 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

We will reverse 'absurd' reform of cannabis law, says Howard
By Andrew Grice, Political Editor
22 January 2004


A future Conservative government will reverse Labour's decision to downgrade cannabis to a Class C drug, Michael Howard will announce today.

In an interview with The Independent, the Tory leader attacked the Government's move as "absurd" and "without logic", warning that it would send a signal to young people that cannabis was safe and legal even though it was not.

Mr Howard said the reclassification of cannabis from a Class B drug, which takes effect a week today, will create a "massive muddle in the middle" between the only two realistic policies - the current position and legalisation. "After thinking about this very carefully, we have come to the view that the Government's decision is completely misconceived and when we return to office, we will reclassify cannabis back to Class B," he said.

Uhhhh, from what I've learnt about pot, it's probably a lot safer than alcohol. 0 deaths from pot (unless you include that bullshit story about a man dying from pot toxicity recently), and thousands of alcohol related deaths.
I'd have to say their justifications are somewhat backwards.

But everyone who smokes pot will eventually become a skag addict. End of story

The newspapers over here are full of stories saying cannabis is MORE dangerous than heroin because at least heroin doesn't drive you "mad".

12 months there was a wave of support in the press for legalising drugs. Something's gone awfully strange since, the pressure has come down bigtime.

of course it will be full of stories like that...i'm not surprised if anti drug groups are paying mega ????? to distort the whole issue...

i know one tory MP personally, who welcomed the change of classification. surprisingly there are a lot of other tory MPs who also feel the same.
