Cannabis is a drug which some class as one which is ‘safer than alcohol’. A petition for legalising cannabis is hit more than 100,000 smokers, and the Guardian stated that legalising cannabis could bring in £900m in taxes every year, save £400m on policing cannabis and create over 10,000 new jobs. However, keeping this drug criminalised is allowing money laundering to succeed and a huge black market on drugs which is criminalising society. This can easily be overturned by legally allowing the use of the drug with regulated use.
The cannabis drug is proven to be safer than alcohol, how then is alcohol classified as legal whereas cannabis is not. It is not to say that cannabis must be legalised, but there seems to be a double standard and the legalisation of drugs seems to be in accordance to the needs of society, as the number of alcohol users is far greater than the number of cannabis users. Maybe when the number of cannabis users increase a little more and it becomes more profitable, maybe then we can talk about legalising cannabis?
