City MPs admit using cannabis

My congratulations to the Tim Yeo and the other Tory MP's who have admitted to having used cannabis in their youth. ('Yeo admits using drug', Evening News, Oct 10th)

I hope that they will now call for an end to the punishment of people for doing something that they themselves got away with.

I am sure that, like millions of others, none of those honest - yet maybe somewhat hypocritical - politicians hurt anyone through their use of cannabis.

But they were fortunate indeed, for had they been arrested and prosecuted, it may well have jeopardised their careers.

Which of the major parties is going to be the first to join the Legalise Cannabis Alliance in calling for the legalisation of cannabis. ?
