7 Reasons to Legalise Cannabis

  1. Take an estimated £2.5 billion a year out of the hands of criminals and the black market and bring this money into the regular economy.
  2. Allow the authorities to label the strength of cannabis sold and control the potency.
  3. Create estimated tax revenues of £1 billion per year which can be spent on public services.
  4. Reduce children's access to cannabis by introducing legal age limits for cannabis use.
  5. Shrink the size of the illicit cannabis market and its associated violence and exploitation.
  6. Free up police resources that can be used to prevent and solve more crimes.
  7. Criminalising people who use cannabis ruins life chances and creates barriers to accessing help and support.
