The government wish to reclassify cannabis as a class C narcotic. Anyone caught dealing or in possession of this drug would receive a more lenient punishment. In my mind, this isn't far enough.

I believe that ALL narcotics should be legal, be they 'soft' or 'hard' drugs. Whose business is it if a person decides to put narcotics into their body? Such an act is a victimless crime and the police should not waste their time addressing it.

The war on drugs also is costly and shows no evident sign of ever being won. In addition, it has been observed to penalise members of ethnic minorities and deprive property owners of their rightful property.

Ultimately, no one should be prosecuted for what they ingest, provided that whilst doing so they violate NO ONE's right to person or property.
