Extraordinary Change Of Tone On Cannabis By The NHS.

nhs-logo-image-1-296169897NHS Choices published an article today that represents a sea change in attitudes towards cannabis.

Headlined ‘No proof that high dose cannabis is more addictive’, it pulled apart the Daily Mail article on the study published this week in ‘Addiction’.

Cannabis is close to a miracle plant, closely intertwined with our body’s natural endocannabinoid system, providing nurture, therapy and healing for many illnesses and promoting good health and wellbeing.

Of course, like anything, even water, it is not without the potential for harm.  It is habit forming, about as much as coffee.  Children shouldn’t be using it, just as they shouldn’t be drinking double espressos.  The madness that is current policy causes far more harm than it prevents. We need to get the dealers off the streets, regulate and control the market properly and start allowing the people of Britain to benefit from the plant they have been denied for too long.
