Britain will legalise cannabis within 15 years, MPs say after Canada trip

Sir Norman Lamb MP and David Lammy MP made a decision to fund their own flights and accommodation for the trip. It can be prescribed for medicinal use but is hard to access and parents have had difficulty importing it for their epileptic children.

In the United Kingdom, cannabis is now a class B drug.

"I advocate legalisation not because I'm into drugs; I'm instinctively quite hostile to the risky use of drugs, legal or illegal".

Labour's David Lammy, Liberal Democrat Normal Lamb, and the Tories' Jonathan Djanogly have predicted that marijuana will be fully legalised in the United Kingdom within five to ten years, following a visit to Canada as part of a Radio 1 Newsbeat documentary, Legalising Cannabis: Canada's Story.

The politicians differed in their estimations of the length of time it would take for the United Kingdom to allow recreational use of cannabis, which Canada became the first G7 country to do previous year.

"It just demonstrates to me how ludicrous it is that we continue to criminalise people who use cannabis with all the disastrous consequences of prohibition, like extreme violence that goes with it always in the poorest communities, the billions of pounds going to organised crime on a plate and the criminalisation of young people".

Mr Djanogly travelled to the country on a research trip to explore the possibility of legalising cannabis in the United Kingdom, which will be the subject of BBC documentary available today.

He said: "We've had a lot of United Kingdom investors invest in our company and we're moving into six countries".

The trip made Mr Lammy change his view to be in opposition to his party's official stance and support cannabis legalisation.

While Mr Djanogly said legalising and regulating cannabis was "easier said than done", he suggested that the cannabis industry could provide the United Kingdom with a solution to unemployment in formerly industrial northern cities. "I want to see the strength of the stuff reduced, labelled and properly organised in this country".

Norman Lamb, a Liberal Democrat MP and former health minister, has spoken about buying and using cannabis oil to relax himself before an important meeting as part of a BBC documentary about the legalisation of the drug in Canada.

He said, "I think we have got a lot to learn before the legalization of recreational cannabis, which I think will happen at some point". While in Canada, the MP also sampled a Cannabis product on camera, perhaps the first MP to knowingly do so.

The oil that was bought by Sir Lamb was different from CBD oil, which is available to buy in the UK.
