I am a web developer with a Computer Science degree by trade and a geek, gamer & tech addict by nature. For the last 4 years I have been responsible for the website here at Swansea Cannabis Club. I am also a patient that uses cannabis to help treat PTSD, OCD, and Asperger's Syndrome and without it I can safely say I couldn't function the same.
This morning the petition above hit 70k and just two days ago when I added my signature it was only at a reasonable 10k. The petition will receive a government response at just 10,000 signatures and at 100,000 will be put forward for the chance to be discussed in parliament.
It comes at a time when a handful of local police forces have publicly stated that they will no longer be prioritising cannabis crimes and instead will be using discretion amongst complaints and those found to be growing cannabis to differentiate between small medicinal grows and cash crops run by gangs. The one thing that kicked off this small wave of compassion from some local police forces was the very public announcement from Durham’s Police Chief that they would no longer be wasting time on targeting small medicinal grows and those they come across will be dealt with using discretion.
This TEDx Talk is about a case in the US that you might have already heard of. Her story was one of the first I’d heard about children being treated with cannabis for rare and fatal forms of epilepsy. It’s one that I’ve seen shared many times but too many people still haven’t heard about Read More

The Science of Cannabis documentary is fairly new created by youtube user “endpotprohibition” and combines footage from other well known cannabis documentaries such as Dr Sanjay Gupta’s Weed and Weed2 documentaries but provides good relevant scientific studies to help back up the claims made in the documentaries. It pulls out some of the most important facts and science behind why cannabis was made illegal and why it really shouldn’t be. It’s 19mins long and is a very informative and concise video. I high(ly) recommend watching and sharing.
