MPs argue about the legalization of marijuana (cannabis) in the UK

The legalization of cannabis is debated in the House of Commons. Matt Hancock, MP for West Suffolk, and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, takes …


  1. A plant that existed before humanity, society and government. How can a law or legislation be passed on a naturally occurring plant? It would be ridiculous to criminalize plants that are dangerous like foxgloves, hemlock or poison berries.

  2. 31:55 listen to this dumb bitch, 188,000 deaths attributed to alcohol & tobacco annually. There is nothing else to say, how can you justify a literal poison and cancer causing substance to be legal. Oh but there so concerned with the pSyCHoSiS. They no fuck all but they decide for millions of us, and everybody seems to be fine with that in this ‘democracy’

  3. Soon they’ll drop dead and we’ll get some mp’s with brains. There is nothing justifiable about keeping cannabis illegal when alcohol & tobacco isn’t.

  4. Cannabis is categorised as a class B drug because it doesn’t have any medicinal benefits. Yet here is the health secretary admitting it can be prescribed by certain doctors. Clearly it is wrongly classed as a drug and should be legalised. There is no question about it in my mind.

  5. Pros of legalisation:
    Less criminal activity involving weed
    Gov will have more of a control of the black market as Weed is a huge factor
    Gov will be able to tax cannabis but not TOO much in order to stop people buying it from dealers instead of dispensaries
    anxiety and chronic pain individuals will benefit massively

    It's unbelievable how the government see alcohol and Tobacco as fine but a natural plant as Illegal.

    Tobacco causes approx 100,000 individuals to die in the U.K. Annually but isn't removed from stores yet the dangers and implications of life are known!
    Alcohol causes approx 88,000 deaths each year from overdosing and getting poising from the drink or from drink driving!

    People cannot overdose on weed! Yet it's illegal and accounts for a majority of the gang crime in London and the countryside, once legalised the black market for the product would disappear depending on the cannabis that is available legally!

  6. look at the death rate of acohol per year… know one died from smoking to much weed it crazy!!! its so backwards law!!! be world piece if everyone smoked one at once followed by a mass food shortaged! makes me feel humble majestic and can function fine can go to work daily makes me very motivated can drive safe at speed limits no different if on weed or not can skateboard even changed my engine on weed… try do that on drink no chance delta 9 dont effect your motor functions! b better to legal cannabis n line dealers pockets hate going to street corners to get my supply wonna move to the usa!!! uk mps need to wake up and smell the tax profits that much needs in the uk now!!

  7. WOW, parliaments system is flawed, for 55 mins straight all they did was discuss sad child stories from constituents and the man just kept repeating "clinical sign off is needed" they done wasted a whole hour when they could just legalise the entire plant already, these peoples mental state of mind is dated back to 1928, so stubborn and held back by the "down sides" of marijuana.. WHAT DOWN SIDES??? if your an adult, you can drink your liver off till death, smoke tobacco till you get lung cancer but the one thing that hasn't killed a soul remains illegal and totally unacceptable for personal use, its appalling… what of those adults who have insomnia and bone /muscle pains? they're NOT the typical child sad story, and therefore will be left out of the conversation for another 92 years? ridiculous.

  8. A "cap" on thc levels… norman lamb is misinformed about how they genetically curate strains to purposely imbalance the ratio of THC and CBD… CBD counteracts the psychoactive effects, but "skunk" has higher levels of THC and LOW levels of CBD to counteract those effects.. the same way medical marijuana focuses their growth and yield in CBD levels, with unnaturally low amounts of THC, essentially rendering the whole plant useless as one cannot be effective without the other.

  9. a large cannabis grow operation in Cambridge, Mrs mays husbands business, making a fortune of cannabis, selling it abroad to legalised countries, we should call the police on them collectively get THEIR operations raided and have them arrested for cultivating and distributing, and profiting off the plant ILLEGALLY in the UK.. how about that..

  10. if your going to keep cannabis criminalised? then let's criminalise alcohol and tobacco aswell because the death rates are 100% higher than cannabis, lets criminalise ALL pharmaceutical drugs while we're at it.

  11. This is pathetic the parliament would rather people drink alcohol and affect their liver or people smoke and affect their lungs etc but they are arguing over a harmless plant that brings loads of health benefits including thc and I’m sure that majority of people would smoke it at there homes instead of the public so that they aren’t vulnerable fuck people telling us what we can and can’t consume it’s my body and should be aloud do to what I want it makes me so mad I hate the U.K. so much I can’t wait to move to Canada or America or Amsterdam

  12. were working hard you look like it you could give a fuck. ill smoke it if i want and you will do nothing to stop me you drink i smoke mine is not man made god put it here for us to use so who are any of you to tell anyone they can not smoke it ha why
    you dont understand coz after a long day doing nothing you go home and have a wine and you dont have to worry about get locked up for it

  13. The thing is only the rich would be able to get the choose off legal cannabis and probably just have the poor pay out for everything ! It's like the government want a civil war on there hands. Only the rich get richer and the poor poorer. Please help everyone and we are all equal and because ppl choose to take a serten drug doesn't mean they are a criminal. All because u have £1 more then me doesn't mean u should be treated any different

  14. I use to be so passionate about cannabis being legal, I am now against it being legalized. Why should the government get money off it when they decide ? You can get the medical cannabis off the internet, so really……………..we don't need the government on this subject anymore.

  15. Needs legalizing only way testing tackling abuse on it on streets mate mine thinks lacing heroin wont be heroin be strain and spray if laced it with heroin even crack coke they d be doing it at own expense be strain and spray using which be cheap more keep it banned worse abuse on street drugs will go

  16. CBD is non psychoactive & Legal
    Psychoactive means it is able to cross the blood brain barrier.
    Epilepsy is a condition which affects the brain.
    THC is psychoactive & Illegal

  17. There’s loads of proof just look at all the data of America the proof is all there in black and white !!!!!!!!! Pls just legalise it so the people can be healthy and live a happy life.

  18. All these cunts are just too posh which makes them too scared to even mention what people want, yes familys need cannabis extracts but the majority of the population arent talking about that side of weed we are talking about straight up weed in flower form that you smoke recreationally and medically

  19. that's the thing they just somehow can't understand, no one dead by smoking weed,however lots of people gets killed by smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol everyday?they need to understand that no matter the ban weed or not,people in uk still smoke and grown it,they'll never be able to stop it. plus by legal it,mean that people are able to by weed without and drugs that's been mix in it and the criminal rate will decrease lots,specially uk are leaving Europe which means that by legalise weed there will be more economic income for uk,so i don't see why they are not legalising the plant

  20. Please do not take away peoples right to choose Cannabis is a wonderful beneficial substance not just for unwell people. There is no argument for criminalisation. People who abuse drugs will do so anyway. Alcohol is a noxious substance very harmful to the mind, body and society. I am a 53 year old hard working professional who uses Cannabis very very moderately with no impact on my health. However, I am passionate that Cannabis be legalised and be regulated properly. I have known for years about the miraculous effect of Cannabis on Epilepsy it is worrying that Health and legislators are so misinformed about this and much else regarding the range of benefits of Cannabis.
