What Mr Flynn has failed to recognise is that cannabis "disobedience" events such as Smokey Bears Picnics have been happening in the UK since the 1960's and achieved nothing.
Also if people are arrested and fined is he going to help pay the fines? I ask as he is in law inciting the action.
And how often should people protest in that way - to make it effective people may have to defy bans and risk prison.
YET I do congratulate Paul Flynn for his efforts.
I hope that one day Human Rights and equal law for all will come in to
the capaign - Right to a Private Life (which includes growing and
possessing plants provided there is no risk or harm to others), Right to
one's own chosen BELIEF and PRACTICE (alone or with others) of those
beliefs - as demanded in Human Rights law.
more people may have more sympathy for those that are ill and use
cannabis to their benefit than those that are not maybe so ill, the fact
is that the law fails to distinguish as it should not distinguish
between WHY people use (although judges may be more lenient with the ill
or injured) - it should distinguish purely on the issue of what harm
done to who?
Also cannabis is extremely valuable as A PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE and in that sense all use is therapeutic.
