Campaigners are having problems booking a venue to debate lifting cannabis 

The Legalise Cannabis Alliance (LCA) in Worthing wants to show the 
certificate 18 Green Britain video, which highlights the controversial 
subject of allowing use of the drug.

LCA campaigner Phil Lockwood, who is set to stand in Worthing Borough 
Council's local elections in May, said more than 20 venues in Worthing had 
refused to host the discussion evening.

Appealing for a place to stage the event, Mr Lockwood said: "We have been 
trying to organise this for the past six weeks.

"We want to show the video to local councillors and dignitaries and 
community groups, then have a question-and-answer session to open the 
debate up in Worthing."

Mr Lockwood said anyone who had a venue that could seat 100 to 120 people 
could contact him on 07866 291368.
