Liberal Democrats would introduce legal, regulated cannabis market - manifesto pledge

The Lib Dems have announced they will protect young people and strike a blow against criminal gangs by introducing a regulated market for cannabis.

Currently, cannabis is easily available, widely used, and generates vast profits for organised crime.

Potent “skunk” cannabis is also extremely harmful; a recent study of patients in Vauxhall and South London found that 24% of new cases of psychosis were associated with skunk. The study also found that low potency cannabis was not associated with increased risk of psychosis.

The Liberal Democrats propose regulating and controlling the market for cannabis, including introducing safety controls. The strength of cannabis would be limited, and sales would be restricted so they could only be made through licensed outlets to adults over the age of 18.
