If Labour is really progressive, it will pledge to decriminalise drugs
There are two simple truths that need to be confronted: criminalising possession doesn’t stop people taking drugs, and the “war on drugs” has failed. Yet discussions are muted, sensible debates shrouded in misinformation and fear. So much so that Theresa May continues to argue life-changing medicine shouldn’t be available to ill children by virtue of it being derived from a cannabis plant. Meanwhile, Labour has said it would legalise the use of cannabis oil for medical purposes.
MERRY JANE’s new docuseries examines the plight of those sentenced to life in prison for cannabis, the effects on their families and communities, and the legal fight for their freedom.
These Cannabis Teas Will Help You Have Better Sex. You’re Welcome.
Jones and Chapin arrived at the idea for the teas after a dear friend of theirs was diagnosed with cancer.

Holy smoke: Jesus used cannabis oil to perform ‘miracles’
JESUS used cannabis and was an early champion of its medicinal properties, a growing consensus of experts agree.
And acceptance of this theory could help promote the controversial drug’s use in treating a range of illnesses.
Cannabis historian, author and journalist David Bienenstock is one who believes cannabis oil even explains the “miracles” attributed to Jesus.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, he said: “Historical records show that cannabis was widely available at the time – they would’ve known how to grow it and exploit its medicinal properties.
“There is nothing different in the efficacious cannabis oil used today that wouldn’t have been available to people in Jesus’ time – it’s simply a matter of concentrating the cannabis into the oil and absorbing it through the skin.”
Scholars even point to a cannabis oil recipe in Exodus 30: 22-25: “Take also for yourself the finest of spices: of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels, and of fragrant cinnamon half as much, two hundred and fifty, and of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty … it shall be a holy anointing oil.”
