Pro-cannabis event given go ahead [UK]
    #4153386 - 05/09/05 02:52 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Pro-cannabis event given go ahead
May 9, 2005 - news.bbc.co.uk

Pro-cannabis campaigners will hold a rally in Trafalgar Square after an annual festival was banned from taking place in south London.

Lambeth Council would not permit the seventh Cannabis March and Festival in Brockwell Park, Brixton, because of drug dealers at previous events.

But the Greater London Authority (GLA) has allowed the Cannabis Education March and Rally to go ahead on Sunday.

It begins in Russell Square, central London, at 1300 BST.

Health concerns

Speakers will lead the rally in Trafalgar Square from 1500 BST until 1900 BST.

The subject of returning cannabis to a Class B drug after it was downgraded to Class C will be discussed as will health concerns, drug testing and driving under the influence.

Organisers of the Brixton festival said they were aware of drug dealers being present but had wanted to work with Lambeth Council and the police to stamp out the problem.

Campaigners say they want the drug regulated and say legalisation would not lead to increased use.

Scotland Yard has agreed the route for Sunday's march.

Cannabis gran to speak at rally
May 14, 2005 - news.bbc.co.uk

A grandmother who was spared jail after making cannabis-laced casseroles for herself and friends will be one of the speakers at a pro-cannabis rally.

Patricia Tabran, 66, will speak at the Cannabis Education March and Rally in Trafalgar Square, central London.

Ms Tabran, from Northumberland, admitted in April to possession with intent to supply and was given a suspended six-month prison sentence.

The march begins in Russell Square, central London, at 1300 BST on Sunday.

The annual event usually takes place in south London.

Drug dealers

But Lambeth Council would not permit the seventh Cannabis March and Festival in Brockwell Park, Brixton, because of drug dealers at previous events.

However, the Greater London Authority has allowed it to go ahead.

Organisers of the Brixton festival said they were aware of drug dealers being present but had wanted to work with Lambeth Council and the police to stamp out the problem.

Other speakers at the event include Peter Tatchell from gay rights group Outrage and Roger Warren-Evans, barrister for human rights group Liberty.

The subject of returning cannabis to a Class B drug after it was downgraded to Class C will be discussed at the rally as will health concerns, drug testing and driving under the influence.

Campaigners say they want the drug regulated and say legalisation would not lead to increased use.
