According to a recently conducted poll in Britain, the majority of the study’s participants believe the current cannabis laws are in need of serious reform. The final results showed that 53% of those polled favor some form of the decriminalization or legalization of cannabis.
It seems that even though the majority of Brits are favoring legalization, their government may have just the opposite standpoint. In 2004 they reclassified cannabis from a Class B to a Class C substance. Wow, that sounds like a government that is attempting to be progressive in regards to leading the way in compassion and understanding about cannabis!
Only to reverse that very decision in 2008 due to the mounting fears of the dangerous and harmful “skunk” cannabis that has grown so popular throughout Britain. Well, I guess I was wrong about the whole progressive, compassion thing.
In terms of overall drug legalization or decriminalization the percentage of participants interested in a complete review of the current drug laws rose to an impressive 67%. Which when translated, is a positive sign regarding the mindset of the world and its views toward this futile attack on our planet’s inhabitants.
“These results just show how far ahead of politicians the public are,” the spokesperson for Transform Drug Policy Foundation proclaimed.
“Whilst Labor and Conservative politicians shy away from the debate on drugs, around half of their supporters want to see legal regulation of cannabis production and supply or decriminalization of cannabis possession, and a significant majority want a comprehensive review of our approach to drugs — including consideration of legal regulation,” the group declared.
“Politicians have repeated their ‘tough on drugs’ propaganda for so long that they assume the public are more fearful of change than they really are,” Transform avowed. “In fact the world has changed, and the public are far more progressive than was thought, right across the political spectrum.”
The wave of intelligence that is the legalization movement is similar to water in respect to not being limited by boundaries. In other words, we can wash across any shore or border if we stand united and help educate those in need of the knowledge about the science of cannabis and help eradicate the fear and ignorance that perpetuates this war on tokers. Be the change.
