UK: Cannabis meeting
Evening News, Norwich
Thursday 02 Jun 2005
Pro-cannabis campaigners are celebrating after Home Secretary Charles Clarke
finally agreed to meet them.
In January, we reported how the Norwich South MP had refused to meet members of
the Legalise Cannabis Alliance saying he did not respect the organisation.
But now Mr Clarke, who himself admitted to smoking the drug in the past, has
agreed to meet the group. Don Barnard, spokesman for the organisation which
has its HQ in Norwich, said today: "I have had confirmation from his diary
manager that he will meet us after July 5."
Mr Barnard, who stood against Mr Clarke at the General Election, said Mr Clarke
first said he would meet them when they shook hands at the election count. He
was now delighted he had had the meeting confirmed.
He plans to travel to London to see Mr Clarke with the Alliance's national
coordinator Alun Buffry and Norwich North MP Ian Gibson.
