CANNABIS SHOULD IT BE LEGALISED
Within this essay I am going to be discussing whether or not there are enough facts around legalising the drug cannabis in the UK. I will be implementing the medical facts should cannabis be available for patients with medical conditions like ME or MS, and how this drug helps them. I will also be discussing the health side of this drug and how it effects individuals that take it or addicted to it, and also if this addiction causes the crime rate in the UK to be so high with this drug.
Also I will be discussing why it is illegal in the uk to be in possession of this drug or grow it in our own homes, and why in other countries this is not the case such as Holland, where you can be seated in a cafe and smoke it at your own leisure, and in Alaska you can grow it for your own consumption. So therefore i will be discussing the differences within these countries.
They say that cannabis is no more harmful than tobacco or alcohol, so there for should it be legalised in this country. In this country it is illegal to be caught with cannabis on your possession or grown in your own home for consumption or selling on. If caught with this drug it is either a hefty fine or a jail sentence, they now class cannabis as a class c drug, but in 2006 it was a class b drug, where the fine was more or less a definite jail sentence.

On the other hand they say that cannabis is useful for those who are suffering from MS, ME or cancer related illnesses and including aids and HIV. When used in cancer related illnesses they say that it helps relieve the symptoms from the chemotherapy they use, i.e. it helps the nausea which gives them the relieve and helps them to eat and live normally. They say that it is the complex substances within the drug that make it extremely difficult to do any medical research and that’s why the safety and the efficiency of its effects are far from proven.
“A report by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee recommended the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. But the British Medical Association (BMA) did not give the report 100% support and believes only cannabinoids – carefully identified chemical derivatives of the cannabis plant – should be used in medicine. The government says it will not consider legalising cannabis for medical use until clinical trials had been completed”. (BBC WEBSITE)
There are health effects which come with taking this drug, they say now that the number of health risks are increasing which is all linked to the drug. The risks that are involved in each individual are lack of concentration , decrease in motivation , these are just some mild side effects , there are more serious side effects which normally persist in individuals that are more addicted to the drug, these can range from psychotic illnesses, schizophrenia etc. Individuals coming off the drug , who have been using the drug for a number of years may occur some withdrawal symptoms these can range from mood swings , agitation, cravings and that’s just to mention a few. So the question is, is it really safe to legalise cannabis?
As it may be illegal to grown or have possession of cannabis in this country, in other countries such as Holland or Alaska it is a different matter. In Alaska it is legal to grown cannabis for your own consumption, they allow you to grow up to four ounces which is about twenty eight plants but may still be prosecuted if traded or exported for any amount of cash. In Holland it is still illegal, but in controlled environments it is legal, this you will find in cafes and coffee shops, where you can buy the drug and smoke at your own leisure, but again being caught in a uncontrolled environment will incur a charge.
