British marijuana smokers still get busted

British marijuana smokers still get busted
January 2, 2006 - sciencedaily.com

LONDON, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Despite a move to downgrade legal penalties, a report shows British marijuana smokers are still being jailed at the rate of three a week.

While possession of pot remains illegal, police were advised not to arrest people smoking cannabis. They were told to confiscate the drug and give a warning.

The punitive approach still being taken by courts in the face of government advice provoked accusations that otherwise law-abiding people were being needlessly imprisoned.

The disclosure comes as ministers agonize over whether to reverse the reclassification of cannabis in January 2004. Prime Minister Tony Blair is widely expected to order an about-turn after receiving medical advice that links regular cannabis use to mental illness, the Independent said.

Home Office figures show that 13,302 people were convicted of possessing cannabis -- not supplying or selling -- in 2004. A total of 161 received an immediate custodial sentence.

Three a week? sounds like you guys are winning over there, to me.

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
