Drug laws review has UK listening


Monday, April 23rd, 2018 11:18am Huff Post on possibility of Island legalising cannabis use A review into government’s policy on drug use has caught the attention of the international press. News site The Huffington Post has penned an editorial this weekend suggesting the Island ‘could become the first place in the British Isles to decriminalise cannabis’. Government announced the review two months ago, after a reported spike in crime last year was attributed to a rise in cannabis-related prosecutions. Ministers are quoted in the piece calling for an ‘informed debate’ with public input, but also emphasising it is ‘too early’ to say what conclusions might be drawn. The article also brings attention to this suggestion from rockstar Mick Jagger, in an interview with CNN’s Larry King in 2010. Work continues to bolster Island’s position post-Brexit Government departments urged to ‘innovate’ Claims that some can’t access basic treatment Six Island residents now awarded long-service clasps Drug laws review has UK listening
