DEBATE: Is there a case for recreational cannabis legalisation?

Should the UK legalise recreational cannabis? The IEA and CSJ go head to head in this debate, chaired by Isabel Oakeshott.


Advocates of cannabis legalisation argue this would lead to safer consumption, easier access to emergency care, a revenue boost for the Treasury, and an expansion of our personal freedoms. Those against point to the effect of addiction on our nations most vulnerable, its negative health implications, the potential for increased consumption and the impact cannabis use can have on learning and development.
