Scotland  - Information Scotland >> Background: Map of Scotland  Scotland is a sub-country within the United Kingdom, continent of Western Europe, occupying the north half of the island of Britain in the North Atlantic Ocean, east of Ireland. The last Ice Age melted away some 10,000 years ago and Stone Age people began to arrive in Scotland from England, Ireland and beyond. They built organized settlements in the Orkney and Shetland Islands, the Northern Highlands and a few of the western isles. The "Picts" from continental Europe as well as the "Beakers" proved influential inhabitants.

In the 6th century, Gaelic speaking people (the Scots) arrived in the Highlands from Ireland. Localized wars with the "Picts" continued for three hundred years, with the determined "Scots" prevailing. In the southern lowlands, a form of Anglo-Saxon feudalism gradually took hold, where royalty shares power with nobility, who in turn allowed common people (serfs) to farm their land. The Lowlander tribal groups fought it, but soon capitulated, thus making way for their powerful family clans to form.

England's Norman Kings long considered Scotland their land, and Scotland (of course) firmly rebelled. Begrudgingly (eventually) the Scots recognized that sovereignty. In the Highlands of the far north however, the pot was simmering, and in 1297, the long awaited drive for independence began. William Wallace led the growing resistance to English occupation of Scotland. After local raids and skirmishes, Wallace and his forces attacked the English at the Battle of Stirling Bridge, killing thousands. After continually punishing the English on many fronts, Wallace, a brave and patriotic man to the end, was captured and executed (drawn and quartered) by the English in London in 1305.

Robert the Bruce, with the forces of William Wallace now behind him, became the real power in Scotland's long term fight for independence. He was crowned King of Scotland and battled the English until he and his forces finally defeated them in 1314. Even in that localized defeat, England still ruled most of Britannia, but victorious Scotland (would not accept) that concept. The 1707 ( Act of Union) between England and Scotland that created the Kingdom of Great Britain was the byproduct of several factors, including the marriage of James IV of Scotland into the English Tudors; the martyrdom of Mary, Queen of Scots; James VI of Scotland succeeding to the throne of England, an on-going civil war over English control of the land and the contentious effort to reform Catholics during the Protestant Reformation.

For the next half-century the Jacobite movement made several attempts to restore Catholic Stuarts to the throne. That ended with the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1746. The Highlanders plan was finally crushed and they were forced to abandon their tartan kilts. Scotland is certainly one of the most enchanting places on our planet, and a magnet for visitors in both ancient times as well as the 21st century.

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Scotland.

  Info on Scotland and Medical Cannabis 

Scotland does not have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW. Yet.

Scotland - status Scotland (UK, EU) | [See also: Cannabis in the United Kingdom] In 1999, a House of Lords inquiry recommended that cannabis be made available with a doctor's prescription. Though the government of the U.K. has not accepted the recommendations, new long-term clinical trials have been authorized. Sometimes juries have returned verdicts of "not guilty" for people charged with marijuana possession for medical use though there are many people in jail for the offence of possession, cultivation or supplying medical marijuana. In 2003, the U.K. company GW Pharmaceuticals, which has been granted the exclusive licence to cultivate cannabis for medicinal trials, had hopes of obtaining regulatory approval for the manufacture and sale of a cannabis-based medicine in the United Kingdom starting in 2004. Such approval has not yet been forthcoming. In April 2005, however, its Sativex marijuana extract, which is produced in the United Kingdom, was licensed for prescription sale in Canada. Although it is not similarly licensed in the United Kingdom, it can be imported, back to the United Kingdom from Canada, for named-patient prescription use. (Named-patient prescription is a prescription process which registers the patient's name with the Home Office.) House of Commons have confirmed that if you are a UK resident then you are not allowed to bring it into the country, not even for personal medical use under the Schengen Agreement. - see UKCIA. >> Click > here < for current info.

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Marijuana Research: Clinical Research on Marijuana's Medical Use The 2002 Petition to Reschedule Cannabis (Marijuana) - Accepted Medical Use: Clinical Research | Results from clinical research demonstrate that both dronabinol and whole plant cannabis can offer a safe and effective treatment for the following illnesses: muscle spasms in multiple sclerosis, Tourette syndrome, chronic pain, nausea and vomiting in HIV/AIDS and cancer chemotherapy, loss of appetite from cancer, hyperactivity of the bladder in patients with multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury, and dyskinesia caused by levodopa in Parkinson's disease. ... This research by Roger Anderson and colleagues of Anderson Clinical Research in Pittsburgh was presented in October 2000 at the Fifth Congress on Drug Therapy in HIV Infection in Glasgow (Scotland). 85% (23/27) of HIV/AIDS patients who added dronabinol (THC), the most active cannabinoid, to their current antiretroviral therapy had a 50% improvement in symptoms of nausea and vomiting. ... In a pilot study with seven patients, a research group at the University of Manchester, Scotland, showed that nabilone, a synthetic THC derivative, significantly reduced levodopa-induced dyskinesia in patients with Parkinson's disease (Sieradzan et al. 2001). >> Visit: http://www.drugscience.org/amu/amu_clinical_research.html

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Drug Laws In The UK: Marijuana For Medical Use- Consumer Law ... By Robert Clarkson on October 23, 2009 8:30 AM | Over the pond, medical marijuana / cannabis has received a lot of press attention recently. This week, media coverage reached saturation-point when the U.S. Justice Department called a halt to raids on state-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries and individuals who prescribe or consume marijuana for medical use. Marijuana for Medical Use While medical marijuana use is now widely tolerated overseas - including in Canada, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Israel, Finland, Portugal, and fourteen states in America (i.e., Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington) - it is still prohibited under drug laws in the UK.

Drug Laws in the UK, Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 | The Misuse of Drugs Act makes the production, supply and possession of cannabis - and a number of other controlled substances - illegal, except in clearly defined circumstances (see below). The Act categorises drugs into three classes according to their relative harmfulness: Class A; Class B; and Class C. Marijuana / cannabis is categorised in Class B. The penalty for possessing a Class B drug like cannabis is up to five years in prison &/or an unlimited fine; while the penalty for dealing is 14 years in prison &/or an unlimited fine. Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 Since most controlled substances have medical &/or scientific uses, there are various exemptions to the general prohibition on possession and supply.

Under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations, substances are categorised under five schedules to determine how broad an exemption applies. Marijuana / cannabis is categorised alongside coca leaf, ecstasy, LSD, raw opium and magic mushrooms in Schedule 1. Under this schedule, a drug can only be supplied, possessed or administered under a special licence issued by the Home Office. These licences are rarely granted & reserved for advanced scientific research. ... you with a solicitor in England, Wales, Scotland or Scotland. ... >> Visit: http://blogs.findlaw.co.uk/solicitor/2009/10/drug-laws-in-the-uk-marijuana-for-medical-use.html

Dundee | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: Like anywhere else in Scotland, the most you can be given if caught is a caution, provided you have under 2 ounces. Law enforcement: As long as you aren’t asking a police officer there is a pretty low chance of getting caught. Where to buy marijuana: If you go the church (steeple) you will find a lot of teenagers there, they will generally have a hook-up to buy weed and should help you get some. Marijuana prices: £20 sterling (do not have coins, always have notes or you won’t get anything) for a “half q” which is half of a quarter of an ounce. (eighth) Marijuana brands: I have never bought anything besides medium quality weed, though you can ask the dealer if they have any better brands as hey sometimes do. Do not expect to get hash resin, as this is rarely available. More information: Do not always expect there to be people hanging at the steeple, but the best time to check is around 5-6pm onwards on weekends. >> Learn more >>

    Scotland - status; WeBeHigh.com | Worldwide Marijuana Travel Guide, Marijuana Prices, Spots & Legalization Status. Glasgow | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: drug use is not an offense in the United Kingdom, but possession and purchasing are illegal. Latest updates: currently class B which is a shame cause it got moved down to C and against all scientific evidence and recomendations the goverment moved it back up to B. Changes to the law: For supply, dealing, production (including cultivation) and trafficking The maximum penalty is 14 years imprisonment. This has increased from 5 years for all class C substances including GHB and Valium. For possession: The maximum penalty has been reduced from five years to two years imprisonment. Possession – the law for adults: Most offenses of cannabis possession would result in a warning and confiscation of the drug. However if there are aggravating factors, such as smoking in a public place or repeat offending, they may be cause for arrest and prosecution. Possession – the law for young people under 18 For a first offence of cannabis possession, young people under 18 will be arrested, taken to a police station and given a formal warning or reprimand. Further offences will lead to a final warning or charge.

    Law Enforcement: They mostly ignore the smoking going on blatantly around them unless there’s kids nearby or someone has complained In practice, the courts usually impose a fine in cases involving cannabis products. In October 2001, Scotland’s first Drug Court was established in Glasgow Sheriff Court. Its introduction followed the report of a Working Group on Piloting a Drug Court in Glasgow, which concluded that the establishment and operation of a Drug Court was feasible within the current legislation.The Pilot can only cater for 150 to 200 orders per annum and so there will be many people who might seem suitable but who cannot be accommodated. We cannot deal with every drug-related crime in Glasgow. In order to limit numbers certain criteria must be met. The offender must be over 21 and there must be an established relationship between a pattern of serious drug misuse and offending. We will not be dealing with first offenders. The nature of the drug misuse must be susceptible to treatment and cannabis abuse alone will not qualify. No case on Indictment will be considered and the existence of outstanding matters on Petition will exclude an offender as will the existence of current Drug Treatment and Testing Orders from the High Court or Stipendiary Magistrate. Persons with a dual diagnosis of drug misuse and mental health problems will generally be excluded.

    The “trigger” case ( which need not itself be drug-related ) must have started life in the Custody Court and must involve a substantive offence (not, for example, a failure to appear) committed after 15th October 2001 although if it fulfils these criteria other complaints can be rolled up and dealt with. Cases involving more than one accused will not be considered by the screening group before calling in the Custody Court but will thereafter be dealt with according to circumstances. It is expected that most cases will proceed on the basis of Pleas of Guilty although we will not rule out referrals after trial and the manual deals with various alternative scenarios. It should be borne in mind, however, that international experience has shown that early intervention can be crucial and the longer the gap between the commission of the offence and the commencement of treatment the less likely it is that treatment will be successful. The offender will normally have been identified as potentially suitable by the police, who will inform the dedicated member of the Procurator Fiscal’s staff. The defence agent may also alert the Fiscal to potential cases if the police have missed them. If the Fiscal agrees, she will convene a pre-court screening meeting with the offender’s solicitor, the police and representatives of the Social Work Department and if they agree and a suitable plea is negotiated then this will be intimated to the Custody Court Sheriff who will be invited to defer the case for a full assessment, including drug testing, for a period of four weeks to call before one of the Drug Court Sheriffs and to admit the offender to bail. Whether or not the Sheriff agrees will be entirely a matter for him or her. Assuming the case is so deferred it will call in the Drug Court where the full range of Summary sentencing options will be available.

    Types of marijuana: Soap Bar, Bud, Weed, Hash. Hash is much more common than grass, and usually has better quality. If you’re a grass fan, you will be able to find some White Widow ,Purple Haze,Buble gum, Mango if its growing its their, Glasgow has a variety of grasses ranging from pretty bad to amazing. Hash is more hard to come by but when you find the person with it they always have it, its dear but worth it. its mostly Indian hash. polm over hear is good its almost as well spread as soap bar. plenty of good green, the hash like most in the U.K varies from home made (excellent) to soap bar (shite cut with everything from vetinary products to melted down records Where to Buy Marijuana in Glasgow: Latest reports say “You can Marijuana in Kelvingrove park, many people smoke it there. Just ask for it, they wont bite you. If not, in Townhead near Buchana Bus Station, ask some neds, they’ll help you out. Please play it cool with them. Also in the Barras, the place is full of it….just ask around. You will probably smell it too. Good luck!” You may ask around at of the city’s vivid nightclubs or nightly cafes. even on the street ask most people and they will sort you out or know some one who can. Via good friends don’t buy from dealers in street as they are often very dangerous in Glasgow. Glasgow Marijuana prices: £60 ounce, if not u can get it for £20 or £40 depending on the dealer; 1/8 mid/high £25

    webehigh city’s tale: Old men drinking whiskey by the bottle. Rowdy young men jostling each other in pubs. Women and children screaming obscenities during football games. These are some of the images once commonly associated with Glasgow. But while there is some truth in the stereotypes, this Scottish city on the River Clyde has blossomed beyond its blue-collar roots to become one of the United Kingdom’s most popular party spots among students, travellers and stoners of every ilk. Glasgow native Steven said that hash, which he has found for 10 British pounds ($14 American) per gram, is “much more popular than grass” because marijuana can be hard to find. “Generally hash is gotten from home-based dealers, but you can get it in some of the more in die and grunge scene bars/clubs,” he said. Another source said he bought an eighth of an ounce of hash for 15 pounds ($21), noting that there is “plenty around if you know where to look” but “you never know if you’re getting the right weight.” But visitors should be warned that Scottish police are not a tolerant lot when it comes to controlled substances. “One of the central planks of our drugs strategy is cutting availability of drugs in Scotland,” said Deputy Justice Minister Angus MacKay. Marijuana legalization group NORML said drug use is not an offence in the United Kingdom, but possession and purchasing are illegal. “Cannabis and cannabis resin are grouped into [legal] Category B. The penalty for possession and/or acquisition of a Category B substance is a summary offences of six months imprisonment and/or a fine,” NORML said. “In practice, the courts usually impose a fine in cases involving cannabis products.”

    Chief Constable John Orr of the Strathclyde Police, the law enforcement body in Glasgow, was unequivocal in his view on dealers and the drug trade. “There will be no respite in our pursuit of you and your activities,” he said. “You are being sought and you will be caught.” Steven noted that, except at certain times, public smoking is not advised. “If the cops see you chances are you will be busted, unless you happen to be at a festival such as Glasgow Gig on the Green or T in the Park,” Steven said, referring to a pair of annual concerts. “Cops are much more laid back at these things and don’t bother you at all.” He said the authorities also loosen up considerably around Hogmanay, the Scottish term for New Year’s Eve. “Anything goes at this time,” he said, suggesting visitors join the thousands of revellers who count down the year’s final minutes on George Square. But visitors don’t have to schedule their trip around a holiday. With its numerous pubs and clubs, Glasgow is a year-round party. Steven said King Tut’s Wahwah Hut is a great spot for live music and friendly to stoners. “Many big bands have played here and many more have started their career here. It is quite small but very cool and attitudes to hash in here are pretty relaxed,” he said, noting that the regulars are open to soft drugs but ultimately loyal to Scotland’s traditional intoxicant. “Of course alcohol is the mainstay and Tennents Lager tends to be the choice of the masses.”

    Mark, who also lives in Glasgow, made numerous nightlife recommendations including Planet Peach and Archaos on Queen Street, Glasgow School of Art’s club on Renfrew Street, The Arches on Midland Street, Cathouse on Union Street, Nice ‘N’ Sleazy on Sauchiehall Street and 13th Note Café on King Street. “I highly recommend buying a copy of The List,” Mark said. “It is a fortnightly publication featuring everything that goes on every night of the week at every club in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. It’s available from any news agent or any place where magazines are sold.” The Tunnel off Argle Street is one of Glasgow’s best dance clubs while Bier Halle Republic on Gordon Street has over 160 beers. Waxy O’Connors on West George Street offers six different bars inside a complex of halls and stairways that could simultaneously confuse and entertain those under the influence. For late-night munchies and pints try Cafe 24-7 on Sauchiehall Street. Several locals suggested Tuesday and Thursday nights at the Strathclyde University Student Union on John Street for its cheap drinks and lively collegiate atmosphere. The students could also be a source of information on where to find soft drugs. “With five bars and an extra dance floor on Saturday night, there is something for everyone,” said Karen, a Strathclyde student. She added that visitors should also try a club called The Garage because “the music is really cheesy, the atmosphere is booming, the drinks are cheap.” >> Learn more >>

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

The study, which was conducted over a two year period and included 775 patients from the USA, Africa, and Puerto Rico, assessed the use of cannabis as a symptom management approach for anxiety, depression, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and peripheral neuropathy.  27% of survey participants reported using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Cannabis Marijuana news - Scotland: Half of SNP cabinet used cannabis | 28/04/2007 - HALF of the Scottish National party’s shadow cabinet, who could be running the country within a week, have admitted smoking cannabis before they entered politics. Among those who said they had tried the drug are Nicola Sturgeon, the party’s deputy leader, Shona Robison, who could become Scotland’s next health minister, and Fiona Hyslop, potentially the next schools minister. Others include Tricia Marwick, the SNP’s housing spokeswoman, Stewart Maxwell, its culture spokesman, and Bruce Crawford, its business manager and campaign chief. Crawford said he smoked a joint to relieve the disappointment of watching Scotland lose a football match against Spain. Fergus Ewing, the party’s transport spokesman, said he had been suspended for two weeks after being caught smoking the drug as a 16-year-old pupil at Loretto, Scotland’s oldest independent boarding school, near Edinburgh. Sturgeon and the other six frontbenchers said they did not believe that experimenting with a soft drug in their youth should count against serving politicians. ...

Steven McGinty, from Livingston, claimed he had produced the drug for his own use because he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. But in court, his lawyer admitted that medical evidence indicated that cannabis use was likely to make the condition worse rather than better. A search of his home on December 8 last year uncovered 41 cannabis plants at different stages of development and eight glass jars packed with nearly 1lb of cannabis buds. Livingston Sheriff Court was told that the Class B drugs were valued at £5000, with the growing equipment worth £2000.

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Common Sense for Drug Policy: United Kingdom Update -- UK Drug Policy Commission Suggests Harm Reduction Measures | A report released by the UK Drug Policy Commission, released on July 30, 2009 and discussed here by the British Press Association, found in their survey of law enforcement officers that "[n]ine out of 10 of those questioned said it was 'unlikely' UK drugs markets would be eradicated in the near future." The study did not limit itself to law enforcement but also addressed drug markets and drug dealers themselves. For example, the Commission found that "drug dealers were often able to avoid having their operations shut down by police" and were "quick to adapt" when avoidance was not possible. But the Commission did not limit itself to simple observations. Instead, it used its findings to make recommendations regarding how and where law enforcement should distribute its resources. As the Press Association states, "the authors suggested targeting law enforcement efforts at reducing the harm caused by illegal drugs." The study suggested such practices as "moving drug dealers from residential neighbourhoods to different areas where they would cause less harm" and "measuring success" based on something other than "arrests and seizures," which the report characterized as having "limited value." Indeed, the Commission suggested that "[e]ven successful police operations can sometimes have negative consequences if, for example, they create a turf war between rival gangs."

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Cannabis spray reduces pain of cancer patients - study; reported by heraldscotland staff | Cancer patients who used a cannabis mouthspray had their pain levels reduced by 30%, researchers at a Scottish university have revealed. The cannabis-based spray, like a mouth freshener, was used on 177 patients by researchers from Edinburgh University. The spray was developed so that it did not affect the mental state of patients in the way that using cannabis would. The researchers said their findings, reported in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management, did not justify smoking cannabis as this could increase the risk of cancer. They said the spray works by activating molecules in the body called cannabinoid receptors which can stop nerve signals being sent to the brain from the site of pain. Edinburgh University's Professor Marie Fallon said: "These early results are very promising and demonstrate that cannabis-based medicines may deliver effective treatment for people with severe pain. "Prescription of these drugs can be very useful in combating debilitating pain, but it is important to understand the difference between their medical and recreational use." ...

Scotland - Resource, Org; local BBC NEWS | UK | Scotland | A senior police officer warns that international gangs have set up dozens of cannabis factories in Scotland. Graeme Pearson, head of the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, said more than 60 industrial-level cannabis farms had been raided in the last year.

Mr Pearson said workers in the factories, which are often set up in residential areas, were frequently kept locked inside like slaves. ...

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Europe: Scottish Attitudes toward Drugs, Drug Users Harsh and Getting Harsher, Annual Poll Finds by Phillip Smith, May 27, 2010, 11:00pm, (Issue #634) | Scottish public opinion is taking a harder line toward drug use and drug users, according to the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey 2009. Support for marijuana legalization has declined by half since 2001, while attitudes toward heroin users are harsh, and support for harsh punishments is stronger than support for harm reduction measures. The poll comes after several years of a full-blown Reefer Madness epidemic in the United Kingdom press, where sensational assertions that "cannabis causes psychosis" have gained considerably more traction than they have in the US. It also comes as Scotland confronts an intractable, seemingly permanent, population of problem heroin users and increasing calls from Conservatives to treat them more harshly. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, support for marijuana legalization rose in Scotland, as if did throughout the UK, reaching 37% by 2001. Last year, it was down to 24%. The decline was especially dramatic among young people, with 62% of 18-to-24-year-olds supporting legalization in 2001 and only 24% last year. ...

Scotland - Resource, Org; local BBC News - Cannabis find in vacant Dundee shop | Cannabis plants with an estimated street value of £50,000 have been discovered in a vacant shop in Dundee. Tayside Police officers found about 160 plants after searching a property in the city's Forest Park Road. The find came as senior officers reported an increase in the number of cannabis cultivations found across Tayside. Assistant Chief Constable Bill Harkins urged the community as a whole to be aware of any suspicious activity. Police said they were continuing to look for those behind the latest cultivation discovery. Det Insp Mike Pirie from Tayside Police's drugs branch, said landlords were being lured into a false sense of security by some tenants. He said: "'The properties where we find these cannabis cultivations are nearly always rented.

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Fixed Fine Plan for Cannabis Users in Scotland By Lucy Adams, Herald Scotland – Friday, November 27 2009 | Cannabis users should be given on-the-spot police fines rather than a criminal record, an official government report has recommended. The report, published yesterday by senior researcher Ben Cavanagh of the Justice Analytical Services Division of the Scottish Government, reveals that 83% of police officers and other staff interviewed called for those found with “personal amounts of cannabis” to be given a fixed penalty notice (FPN) and therefore no criminal record. The research reveals that 22,000 police hours have been saved and more than 65,000 £40 notices handed out to low-level offenders.

The BBC reported on June 9, 2008 "Forum sets out radical drugs plan") that " Recommendations include the setting up of "consumption rooms" where addicts would be able to take drugs safely, and for heroin to be prescribed to users. The report also suggested the taxation of cannabis to enable it to be more tightly regulated. The Scotland's Futures Forum was asked to look at ways of tackling addiction. The think tank was established by the parliament and was tasked with looking at the challenges facing Scotland, and seeking ways to meet those challenges. In this latest report it asked how the damage caused by alcohol and drugs in Scotland could be halved by 2025." According to the BBC, " The forum believes cannabis should be taxed and highly regulated to help reduce availability and harm. A Scottish Government spokesman ruled out any imminent establishment of drug consumption rooms. 'There are complex legal and ethical issues around consumption rooms that cannot be easily resolved,' he said. Approaches to heroin prescribing are currently being piloted in England, the spokesman added.

Scotland - Resource, Org; local UK Physicians Call for Marijuana Legalization - MEDICAL MARIJUANA, Summer 1999 | In June, prominent physicians from the British Medical Association's (BMA) Scottish Regional Health Committee urged legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational purposes (Gillian Harris, "Doctors Call For Legalised Cannabis," The Times (UK), June 21, 1999; Daily Telegraph (UK), "Doctors Push For Legal Use Of Cannabis," June 21, 1999; Tim Winkler, "Doctors Back Legalising Cannabis," Scotsman (UK), June 21, 1999; Jeremy Laurance, "Doctors Urge Legalising of Cannabis," The Independent (UK), June 22, 1999). George Venters, M.D., the committee chairman, argued that there was no evidence that cannabis was addictive and said, "I think more than half the population would support legislation if you laid out the evidence." The doctors contend the illegal status of marijuana encourages people to categorize the drug with heroin and cocaine, which in turn leads to the assumption that taking hard drugs is no more damaging than smoking marijuana. Venters asserted, "There is much more damage done by smoking [cigarettes] and alcohol than by cannabis. That is the issue." Dr. Brian Potter, Scottish secretary of the BMA, said, "What [the committee] is trying to say is that there are other dangerous drugs which are legalised and cause a lot more deaths. Certainly in Scotland, 35 people a day die from tobacco use. Maybe we should be focusing on that rather than putting our energies on cannabis." Anti-drug agencies rejected the group's call to action, claiming decriminalization would lead young people to experiment with harder drugs. The director of Scotland Against Drugs, Alistair Ramsey, said that the legal status of cannabis was investigated last year by a select committee from the House of Lords and no reason was found to decriminalize or legalize the drug. ...

Scotland - Resource, Org; local NORML » News Releases » Location » United Kingdom » Scotland » Scotland: Medical Association Backs Legalizing Marijuana - Thursday, 24 June 1999 | Leading doctors from the British Medical Association's (BMA) Scottish committee for public health are pushing to remove criminal penalties for the recreational use of marijuana. "We want to encourage public debate on this issue and examine the evidence, rather than [have] people leaping to prejudice," committee chairman Dr. George Venters said. "I think more than half the population would support legalization if you laid out the evidence." The doctors' group argues that separating marijuana from the illegal drug market would effectively dissuade users from graduating to harder drugs. "Marijuana is in the same boat as heroin and cocaine [under the law] and that's entirely anomalous," Venters said. "Cannabis has been around a long time. It's not addictive; it's not in the same league as these other drugs." Venter's said that improperly categorizing marijuana with hard drugs like heroin and cocaine costs anti-drug proponents credibility with adolescents. "If we want to be listened to about drugs, we cannot talk a lot of nonsense. Young people know exactly what is going on." ...

Scotland - Resource, Org; local Decriminalize Marijuana Use, Says Church of Scotland Report DRUG POLICY STUDIES May-June 1997 | Decriminalize marijuana smoking, says a Church of Scotland report published on March 25 after a two-year study into drug use ("Report of the Study Group on the Decriminalisation of Drugs," Church of Scotland, Board of Social Responsibility, March 25, 1997; Carlos Alba and Robbie Dinwoodie, "Blair at Odds With Church Over Drugs; Kirk's Soft Line on Cannabis," The Herald (Glasgow), March 26, 1997, p. 1). The "Kirk report," as it is called, concluded that using cannabis is no more sinful than drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco or overeating. The Rev. Jim Cowie, who led the study, said, "We do not believe that the consumption of cannabis is unduly detrimental to people's health or to society." Cowie added, "The cost to society if people choose cannabis instead of alcohol and tobacco, to both legal and health services, would be greatly reduced." Cowie also said, "Medical use of cannabis, which the Government recently voted against, is recommended." The report was conducted by the Church of Scotland's Board of Social Responsibility (BSR). The report calls for 1) "the appropriate legal authorities to ensure that resources are in place for greater and more consistent use to be made of diversion schemes in dealing with cannabis users," 2) "a Royal Commission [to] be appointed to consider and make recommendations on the issues involved in the legalisation of cannabis," 3) "the Department of Health to initiate a review of the medical uses of cannabis," and 4) "the Board to continue to monitor, research and challenge the reasons for the misuse of drugs as they relate to the full range of social conditions." ...

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.

"Michele,

Try making tea from it, that's the simple method. You can also make tictures, and canna-butter - which you can then use in baking. Also, mix into cream - like noxzema - let sit for a spell (the longer, the better) and try applying it topically where it hurts.

best wishes,
