What should future UK cannabis policy look like?

01 July 2020

Internationally, laws and regulations controlling the sale and use of cannabis are changing. We are interested in what members of the UK public think about issues related to cannabis policy, including legalisation & decriminalisation, and what a legal cannabis market might look like in the UK if the government decided to change the law to permit this.
