LCA: “we can maybe praise nature for giving it the ability to withstand what may be its biggest obstacle to survival – man, the creature that it should benefit most.”

Legalise Cannabis Alliance (LCA) spokesperson Alun Buffry Said: “Cannabis is such a versatile and efficacious plant, as a natural resource for medicine, food, fibre and fuel, that we can maybe praise nature for giving it the ability to withstand what may be its biggest obstacle to survival -man, the creature that it should benefit most.
“In my opinion, the UN made a massive error when it included the cannabis plant in its anti-drug prohibition policies.”
Antonio María Costa, also declared that “for almost all drugs there are
signs of overall stability, whether we speak of production, trafficking or consumption”.
According to European Coalition For Just and Effective Drug Policies (ENCOD) in depth press statement.
“Stability in this case means that those who carry the heaviest burden of current policies are those who are already among the most arginalised in the first place. Current drug policies do little or nothing to reduce this marginalisation, they only increase the problem. Hence, they do far more damage to well-being in general than do the drugs themselves.”
“It is time to accept that the current regimen is a failure. It is time to stop the war on citizens in which the drugs war has evolved. It is time to open the door to alternative and pragmatic drugs policies. A world without repression”
