ThinkTent: Is there a case for recreational cannabis legalisation?

Advocates of cannabis legalisation argue this would lead to safer consumption, easier access to emergency care, a revenue boost for the Treasury, and an expansion of our personal freedoms. Those against legalisation point to the effect of addiction on our nations most vulnerable, its negative health implications, the potential for increased consumption and the impact cannabis use can have on learning and development.

Is there a case for legalisation? The Institute of Economic Affairs and the Centre for Social Justice take part in a head-to-head debate in the Think Tent. Join in and cast your vote!
