The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs Refuses to Advise

They are a committee formed by the government comprised of experts in the field. There are social workers, former law enforcement professionals, and medical advisors. It is their job to engage in fact-finding concerning the impact of drug misuse (a nebulous bit of terminology, but that’s another discussion entirely), then report back to the Home Office with recommendations presumably geared to protecting the public health and safety. Council Chair Professor Les Iversen said in a public meeting on April 11th that cannabis was no longer an issue for the ACMD because the issue had become “politicized” and thus was out of their hands. This is a very disturbing statement, but it is also a tacit admission of what is really going on in the United Kingdom regarding drug policy. They are stating, albeit in bureaucratic doubletalk, that the government is motivated entirely by politics and will not be accepting fact-based advice from the council. It’s actually a very bold admission, and has garnered surprisingly little press.

Jason Reed, Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition: “It seems utterly incredulous that the official advisory body which provides a necessary barrier against politicking and intransigence has, for whatever reason, been stifled into an oblique submission.

The mandate of the ACMD is clear: to act as the nonpartisan arbitrator of drug policy. The segregation between an independent advisory panel and the political class is a deliberate one; it was conceived so as to prevent political muscles from trying out flex one another. With a glimpse into the inner core of policy making, we should at the very least raise eyebrows with a required and foreboding concern.” They obviously share my concern that this ostensibly non-partisan independent body is now being mired in the political game that prevents progress on so many different fronts.

The attempt to address prohibition on the basis of the facts rather than the politics has been responsible for progress in many jurisdictions. It is hard to frame the War on Drugs as anything but an abysmal failure. There is something else to point out about this: Cannabis seems to be uniquely politicized as compared to other drugs. The ACMD isn’t throwing their hands in the air regarding the discussion of heroin or cocaine. They’re willing to address the impact of so-called “legal highs” (complex molecules which are psychoactive but as of yet unregulated by law) or other intoxicating substances, but cannabis is outside of their prevue now.

This speaks volumes. Apparently Parliament, or the Home Office, or perhaps the PMO have passed the word down to the ACMD that their mind is made up on the subject and there is no need to waste time finding useless facts. This suggests some backroom dealings going on regarding cannabis laws, ones which are not subject to professional consultation or public interference. Something is afoot, it’s hard to be sure what, but this decision wasn’t made in a vacuum. While they are stating that the Home Office is obligated by law to take advice from the council, they are also saying that this advice is no longer welcome on political grounds and so they will not be offering it. So what is the point of a legal obligation if the Home Office can simply instruct the Council to stop advising on political grounds? Does this not render the entire process moot?

Release, LEAP-UK and other NGOs have been engaging the fact-finding process in government concerning drug laws. By making rational arguments about the harms done by prohibition, and providing documented facts about the success of engagement programs concerning drug use, they were making real inroads. Now the Council itself has kicked the entire subject into a far field out of reach, essentially admitting that the entire rational process is window dressing. Something has changed within the Home Office recently and it isn’t being made public. If they are just outright tossing the facts on cannabis into the dustbin they must have foregone conclusions on the subject and are not interested in accepting further input. This puts the voice of reason right out of the room. A government willing to dismiss the facts from its own fact-finding organization is completely out-of-touch with the changing tides in society regarding drug use.

The good news is that an election is looming. The coalition has almost used up their limited time in office and the time to cast ballots is approaching quickly. This is the time to find out where your local candidates stand on this subject. You won’t find out except by asking. Yes, you’re probably going to get a boilerplate response, but that just means you’re knocking at the wrong door.   - Read more>>


Multiple Sclerosis Patient Busted for Cannabis, Now Faces Court Ordeal

Yet another MS patient, this time in Oxfordshire, England  - Important Information has been raided for growing her own medicine after being denied Sativex. This is a complete travesty and an utter waste of tax payer’s resources. Michelle uses cannabis for Multiple Sclerosis. We know cannabis is the single most effective medicine for MS patients as proven by the ten year study at the University of California and by numerous other scientific studies. You only need to type in cannabis and MS into Google to get a wealth of information on the subject. - Read > more here <

Harm Reduction in Cannabis Cultivation and Distribution

The most harmful thing about cannabis is prohibition, the lack of regulation means that we cannot guarantee that the cannabis which gets distributed is as safe as it should be. It is the responsibility of all people involved in the cultivation and distribution of cannabis to be responsible for harm reduction and ensuring public safety. We have a responsibility to self-regulate cannabis in the UK and to make it as safe as possible. We make it safer and safer, until risk of harm is no longer a valid reason for prohibition, as if it was already? There are a small minority of people who are campaigning to demonise cannabis, not only suppressing knowledge of the true capability of the plant, they are trying to make it less safe for the public by removing any responsible level of regulation. These people are in support of prohibition which is a system not geared towards harm reduction, therefore these people could be considered the opposition of our public safety initiative, after all, politicians who support prohibition are supporting organized crime.

United Kingdom - Important Information 69% in favour of decriminalising cannabis in BBC poll | LAST week a major independent study called for the decriminalisation of cannabis. The publication of a six-year-study from the UK Drug Policy Commission (UKDPC) likened cannabis use to “moderately risky” gambling or junk food. “Germaine Greer said ‘the people have spoken’ I hope the government will take note of this poll and change these unjust laws on cannabis, so people like me can get access to the medicine I need,” concluded Mr French. * For further info, Contact: Chris Bovey -or- Clark French -at- NORML UK, Unit C, The Scope, Wills Road, TOTNES, TQ9 5XN, UK  -or-  visit - www.norml-uk.org *  Read more >>.  See more >> Action Contacts, below.

United Kingdom  - Information United Kingdom >> Background: locator map of United Kingdom in Europe The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (commonly known as the United Kingdom, the UK or Britain) is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain - Europe's largest island, located in the North Atlantic Ocean - plus the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. The constitutionally distinct region of Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another sovereign state—the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, the English Channel and the Irish Sea.

The United Kingdom is a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system, with its seat of government in the capital city of London. It is a country in its own right and consists of the union of the individual countries of: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. There are three devolved national administrations, each with varying powers, situated in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh; the capitals of Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland respectively. Associated with the UK, but not constitutionally part of it, are three Crown Dependencies. The United Kingdom has fourteen overseas territories. These are remnants of the British Empire which, at its height in 1922, encompassed almost a quarter of the world's land surface and was the largest empire in history. British influence can still be observed in the language, culture and legal systems of many of its former territories.

The United Kingdom (UK) is arguably Europe's most influential country and is a constitutional monarchy. Its reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is also the Queen and Head of State of (15) other Commonwealth realms, including Australia, Canada, Jamaica and New Zealand.

With deference to the Roman Empire, and 15th and early 16th century Spain, the British Empire was the world's first superpower, with colonies and dependencies stretching around the globe. It was the significant factor and strongest ingredient in the development of many English speaking countries, including the United States - its former colonyclosest ally today.

Throughout the 19th Century, Great Britain was the world's dominant industrial and maritime power. It played a huge role in the development of our modern democracies, and in the advancements of literature, map of United Kingdom manufacturing, science and the performing arts. Despite the (global) decline of the British Empire, the United Kingdom remains a consequential force; it's the fifth largest economy in the world, second largest in Europe, and a respected (major) military power.

The genesis of the United Kingdom began in early England. It took centuries of invasions and wars, heroes and villains, kings and queens, and swallowed pride by all concerned before its many parts united as one. For more details on each of the countries, follow the links below:

Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in United Kingdom.

  Info on United Kingdom and Medical Cannabis 

United Kingdom does NOT have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW. Yet.

United Kingdom - status United Kingdom (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. ...

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.

United Kingdom - Resource, Org; local Christians For Cannabis (ORG) Myths, half truths and deception pollute the dismal landscape of the war on drugs. For a century, truth has been ignored and concealed.

"There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known."

-Jesus, Matthew 10:26

Today, we must abolish past prejudices of the reefer madness era. Factual information has been brought to light thanks to the tireless efforts of groups like NORML , Media Awareness Project, Drug Policy Alliance and Common Sense for Drug Policy and other major reform organizations.

"These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; do not plot evil against your neighbor, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this," declares the LORD.

-Zechariah 8:16-17

As Christians, we need to be sure that we are making socially responsible decisions based on true justice concerning drug policy. It is our hope that by providing a solid base of factual information, that there will no longer be a 'lack of knowledge' on this issue, and that the Christian community will promote drug policies based on science and compassion, rather than apathy, fear, hate and ignorance.

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.

United Kingdom - News Cameron calls for legalisation of 'medical marijuana' By Andrew Grice, Political Editor Monday, 22 January 2007 | David Cameron has supported calls for cannabis to be legalised for medical use provided that clear health benefits can be shown. The Tory leader, who has refused to answer media questions about whether he used drugs before entering politics, ruled out a wider legalisation of cannabis for recreational use. Answering questions on his "webcameron" website, he said: "If it can be proved that there are real benefits, medicinal benefits and scientific evidence for it, I would be relaxed about that. My decision would be to licence it if it could be proved to have benefits."

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.

Today, as the notion of legalising drugs is making its way into the mainstream political agenda for the first time in living memory, one of the most common objections to it is that it represents a high-risk experiment whose outcome cannot be accurately modelled or predicted. Yet within the context of history, the opposite is true: it is the prohibition of drugs which is the bold experiment without precedent.

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.

1. Since 1996, twelve states have legalized medical marijuana use: AK, CA, CO, HI, ME, MT, NV, NM, OR, RI, VT, and WA. Eight of the twelve did so through the initiative process. Hawaii's law was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor in 2000, Vermont's was enacted by the legislature and passed into law without the governor's signature in May 2004, Rhode Island's was passed into law over the governor's veto in January 2006, and New Mexico's legislation was signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson on April 2, 2007.

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.

" Roll up, roll up: see the cannabis ban vanish in a puff of smoke - The Sunday Times

Alexis de Tocqueville, easily the best European interpreter of America, observed of how opinion shifts in this still- new country: “As long as the majority is still undecided, discussion is carried on; but as soon as its decision is irrevocably pronounced, everyone is silent, and the friends as well as the opponents of the measure unite in assenting to its propriety.” If you want to know why universal healthcare is still being fought over in America, the answer is that the country remains split on the subject. And if you want to know why gay marriage has suddenly gone from being unthinkable to being an increasingly accepted part of the American landscape, you’ll notice how polling support for it has shifted from 57-40 against marriage equality as recently as 2009 to 54-43 in the latest Gallup poll four years later. That’s why it’s striking that Gallup just found the first clear national majority for legalising cannabis for all uses. Like the question of gay marriage, the idea of legal marijuana was once unthinkable. In 1996 only 27% of Americans backed same-sex marriage and 25% backed legalising weed, in Gallup’s polling. In 2013, those numbers became 54% and 58%, respectively. In the last year alone, Gallup found support for legal pot rising 10 points. (The notion that the 1960s were much more relaxed about this is a myth. In 1969, at the height of the youth revolt, only 12% favoured legalisation.) - http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/comment/columns/andrewsullivan/article1332106.ece "

" The following is an Introduction to a Presentation that has been delivered to the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister Cameron and Dr Vincent Cable MP Business Secretary | Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The Introduction is also attached to this email as a PDF file.

In addition to the 100,000+ new, well-paying jobs created directly through Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation and a collateral job creation multiplier estimated in the range of 2 to 2.5, the Presentation also introduces several United States proprietary and patented alternative energy and agricultural technologies. Alekson/Grazing Bull can, through our strategic international business development relationships, bring these cutting-edge technologies to the United Kingdom to create a multiplicity of additional new jobs and significant outside capital investment.

100,000+ WELL-PAYING JOBS CREATED THROUGH COMPASSIONATE MEDICAL MARIJUANA LEGISLATION

Presented By: Alekson/Grazing Bull Family of Solution Companies The Medicine Wheel Project LLC | Medical Marijuana Delivery Systems LLC

A Presentation prepared by Alekson/Grazing Bull has been delivered to Prime Minister Cameron. It is meant to open a dialogue with the Government of the United Kingdom for (i) the ground-up formation of Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation; and (ii) development of a nationwide, stringently governed and transparently regulated and monitored Medical Marijuana Industry creating more than 100,000 new well-paying jobs across the United Kingdom.

The task at hand is not an easy one. Notwithstanding the difficulty faced by law makers in bringing about a fully developed infrastructure in support of the Medical Marijuana Industry contemplated by the Presentation, law makers need to compassionately consider (i) the needs of those suffering from debilitating medical conditions; (ii) the risk of prosecution people face each time they seek relief from chronic medical condition; (iii) the immediate need for a great many well- paying jobs to help mitigate current levels of unemployment across the Nation; and (iv) a new tax revenue source to help fund much needed governmental programs. Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation is the right action; now is the right time.

The Presentation sets forth a practice, systematic framework for development and implementation of Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation in the United Kingdom. Governmental adoption of initiatives similar to those set forth in the Presentation will create a business-risk-manageable Industry immediately bringing about significant outside Capital Investment. Capital Investment needed to develop the nation-wide infrastructure required to support the Industry.

Given (i) the labor intensive nature of the Medical Marijuana Industry; and (ii) that Patients will come from across the United Kingdom and from all walks-of- life; jobs created by formation of a Medical Marijuana Industry will be proportionately spread across all United Kingdom communities.

Creation of more than 100,000 new, well-paying jobs in a stringently controlled and transparent Medical Marijuana Industry will improve the economies of countless communities across the United Kingdom and spark entrepreneurial enthusiasm. Entrepreneurial enthusiasm to create new business enterprises in support of the Industry; those enterprises, in turn, creating countless additional new jobs. The ripple effect from the creation of more than 100,000+ new, well-paying jobs in a relatively short time period will have an enormously positive affect on the economy of the whole of the United Kingdom.

The job multiplier arising from development of an entirely new, labor intensive Industry could be in the range of 2 to 2.5. A multitude of indirect support jobs are needed (i) to manufacture and/or procure the materials and sophisticated equipment necessary to operate this new Industry; and (ii) to monitor its governance. Sophisticated products and well educated and industry trained personnel (both blue and white collar) are required to successfully operate this Industry.

The strategies discussed in the Presentation will require hard work, long hours of dedicated effort and the collaborative cooperation of all; everyone pulling together to bring about a new 21st Century perspective that relegates the thinking of the past to the history books and gives birth to a whole new Industry with an overabundance of new, economic opportunities.

We are available, at your convenience, to discuss this Presentation and the abundance of Economic Opportunities it can bring to the United Kingdom.
