  1. i'd expect this level of propaganda from 1930s or 1950s America... but now, in this age, in the UK, from "the people's broadcaster" of all places! think about it, the date this is reported, the date it happened, the date of reclassification..... i smell BLATANT PROPAGANDA!

    The following story was posted on the BBC web site (and presumably regional tv). The story contains the implication that 'cannabis addiction' led a man to shoot his neighbour in a dispute.

    Although the story acknowledges that the police found the man in a drunken coma, this is seen as a mark on his character and not the primary driver of the incident.

    This is a lie. We cannot and will not allow *our* public broadcaster to promote ignorance about cannabis. If you're serious about wanting a change in the laws and attitudes toward the weed, take 10 minutes to register your disapproval (link marked feedback on the BBC site, accessible from that story); write; phone; turn up at the damned gates.
    Complain! LOUDLY!

    The record no. of complaints for a BBC programme is around 500. Overgrow could smash that by themselves.

    Mail this to every interested party you know and make sure they do the same. Back up your points with relevant, irrefutable information; let's generate a total blitz of complaints and make sure that this blatant nonsense is exposed for what it is - the alternative is that we let this stand on public record.

    I include my own email for reference.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I write concerning the referenced story. I am frankly stunned at the logical fallacy of the piece which attempts to link cannabis use and violent crime while glossing over the proven relation between alcohol and the same.

    Cannabis has never been linked to antisocial behaviours other than the illegality of obtaining and using the drug; alcohol on the other hand at peak times accounts for some 80% of A&E admissions.

    I feel that the facts speak for themselves and include a selection of articles for your perusal which should at least begin to set the record straight.

    Yours,

    -- Bob Gregory
