Nick Clegg, a former deputy prime minister in the United Kingdom, advocated full marijuana legalization and added that it would improve public health in the Thames.
In addition to improving public health, Clegg also claims that the legalization of marijuana would bring tax revenue of £ 1bn. In his entry on the British Medical Journal blog, he argued that regulating the market would protect users against fraudsters who often soak up the chemicals they eat that lead to extreme psychosis and are dangerous to health.
According to Clegg, some cannabis varieties are also dangerous and they should also not be given to smokers because they can also cause side effects.
He also argued that the legalization of marijuana would allow the government to determine the upper limit of the “power” of the grass that would be sold. The government could also specify the minimum amount of cannabinol, a substance found in marijuana that alleviates the negative effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
In recent times, “grass” breeders have removed cannabinoids from their plants to make their products stronger. This substance may protect the sensitive part of smokers from paranoia.
Clegg also wrote that the legalization of marijuana would also bring financial benefits in the form of billions of pounds of tax revenue.
“I do not call here for the liberalization of drug law because marijuana is now available to practically all people, including children.” This is a debate about whether we prefer to have control over it. Public health problem we transmit entirely to criminal organizations? ” Nick Clegg wrote.
The Liberal-Democratic Party is the first grouping in the UK that has proposed the legalization of marijuana in its program. Prime Minister Theresa May said that she did not believe in the legalization of marijuana, referring to her proposal, because she said it was a pass for hard drugs.
Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn has historically advocated the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes, but, like Theresa May, he opposed legalization.
