Cannabis Reclassification

EDM number 1426 in 2005-06, proposed by Nigel Evans on 19/01/2006.

That this House notes the recommendation of the Advisory Panel on the Reclassification of Cannabis; agrees with the Home Secretary that cannabis is extremely harmful and is directly linked with psychiatric disorders and other debilitating illnesses; welcomes the proposed advertising campaign; recognises the mixed messages that the initial reclassification of cannabis sends to young people; further welcomes his announcement that he is to review the entire classification system relating to all drugs; but calls on him to reclassify cannabis from a C class drug to a B class drug pending the outcome of the review.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
