Witham: Challenge to Charles
A campaigner for the legalisation of cannabis will stand against the Home Secretary at the General Election.
Don Barnard, who lives in Witham, has announced he will stand for the Legalise Cannabis Alliance (LCA) against Charles Clarke in his Norwich South constituency.
Mr Barnard said: "Charles Clarke refused to discuss the issue of legalising cannabis and I was asked to put myself up against him.
"It's an opportunity to get the issue out."
The LCA, of which Mr Barnard is the national press officer, was registered as a political party in 1999.
