LETTER: Thanks Chris Howes for your support in the cannabis debate

I would like to thank Chris Howes for his support (letters – cannabis debate).

In a welcome move, Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats has called for the legalisation of cannabis (currently classified as a ‘class B’ drug) and a cessation of the ‘war on drugs’, or at the very least a ceasefire.

At the upcoming Lib Dem spring conference, Tim will endorse a motion which calls on the party to extend its existing support for the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal use, to include recreational use as well.
