The UK is now the world's largest producer of legal cannabis in the world. Their government also holds the stance that cannabis has no medicinal value, and their citizens are not provided with the opportunity for any type of cannabis therapy. So what gives? Why are they producing so much of a product that they don’t even believe to be helpful?
According to High Times, Steve Rolles, senior political analyst for Transform said, “It is scandalous and untenable for the UK government to maintain that cannabis has no medical uses, at the same time as licensing the world’s biggest government-approved medical cannabis production and export market.” Well put Steve, well put.
This entire debaucal is what can only be referred to as a hypocritical war on drugs and on those who choose to medicate with cannabis. All it has done is line the pockets of politicians while driving citizens to the black market to obtain their medication of choice.Posted: Monday, March 12th, 5:28am 8 months ago
