What utter bollocks! Persecuting people through the courts for treating their condition with time-honoured, homeopathic and traditional remedies. Hardly the 'crime of the century' now, is it?
Costing tax-payer's loads of money that could be invested in the NHS proactively. Shelling out money to the Police to continue this Draconian witch-hunt. It's pathetic and all of those involved want to seriously wise up sharpish..!
It also doesn't add up. There must be regional differences in how the courts and Police handle this. My reasons for saying this are that; when I was in England back in 2003 shooting the medical marijuana documentary; Healing Herbs, I went to a local coffee-house where marijuana was openly distributed to disabled people and in a safe environment. Also, the Police passed by on several occasions and we were told they knew what was going on but were happy to not get involved as long as all consumption was for medical purposes and strictly kept on the premises.
When are the stupid, out-dated UK laws going to come into alignment with the rest of Europe on this one? For that matter, Britain!
