From Poppers to Puff: Blunt on Blunts

blunt

Bongs are bubbling over at CLEAR, the UK’s largest cannabis reform group, as Crispin Blunt  joins their advisory board as political advisor. Having spoken out in the Commons on his own use of poppers, the Tory MP was perhaps a natural choice to lobby for legalisation of weed, a few days ahead of a parliamentary report being published. CLEAR is the largest drug policy reform group in the UK with more than 685,000 registered supporters.  Its aim is “to promote as a matter of urgency and compassion the prescription of medicinal cannabis by doctors”.  Far out, man…

The evidence for the use of cannabis in alleviating the effects of diseases like Alzheimer’s, cancer, Crohn’s and multiple sclerosis is prolific and compelling. Crispin is getting blazed up about the issue:

“It is wrong that people with a range of conditions are missing out from medicinal benefits because of the UK’s out-of-date drug laws. We need a new approach and a sensible regulatory system…”

Let’s just hope MPs don’t make a hash of the upcoming report…
