Police Are ‘Turning A Blind Eye’ To Cannabis Across The Country, Experts Claim

GREAT BRITAIN:  Police forces across Britain are quietly turning a blind eye to cannabis use in order to focus their attentions on more pressing priorities, drug experts have claimed.

While the Government has insisted it has no intention of relaxing the laws on Class B narcotic, police chiefs have increasingly been taking a more lenient approach, with users more likely to receive a warning than face prosecution.

The debate around the drug laws took a fresh twist this week when Durham Constabulary became the first police force to publicly acknowledge that people who grow small quantities of cannabis for their own consumption would not be targeted by officers.
