The war on cannabis has gone on for over 70 years and will doubtless 
continue for a while yet.

It is an important issue that ought not be put too far aside, despite the 
seriousness of current affairs such as the Iraq War and terrorism.

Most people who have tried cannabis will tell you they enjoyed it and were 
not harmed, a few will say that it led into hard drug addiction, crime and 

Others, many of whom suffer from dreadful ailments, describe it as 
life-saving.  To some it is a holy sacrament in their religion.

The law treats all those users the same - criminalising and punishing them 
even though they have not hurt anyone.

The law allows for places where people can socialise while consuming 
alcohol, despite all the trouble that causes while cannabis users have 
nowhere to legally go despite the evidence from Dutch cannabis "coffee 
shops" that they cause no problems.

Would you like to see a legal cannabis cafe for adults in town?
