While the rest of the world moves towards decriminalisation because time and again research has shown that cannabis is far less harmful than alcohol and decrim reduces harm, this letter opposes it because… “marijuana bad”.

Khan's policing trial would send the wrong message to young Londoners. Cannabis is not harmless, and using it is not a victimless crime.
