Motion text

That this House welcomes the more efficient deployment of police time and resources that will result from the 'de facto' decriminalisation of cannabis possession in parts of London; believes that the police are doing the job that successive governments have dodged, but believes the 'decriminalisation' by postcode will create new injustices; and calls on the Government for a full review of drugs laws that have perversely made the UK the drug sink of Europe.
