I wonder if it was coincidence or intentional that today's Daily Mail (10 Feb 2020) had two headlines next to each other:
Police seize 650 cannabis plants in raid on suspicious locked building at a farm in Kent
Police are swamped with half a MILLION mental health crisis call-outs in a year amid growing pressure on NHS services
The country is now so high on weed that there are going to be consequences. The police themselves, within the second article, are stressing that they do not wish to be spending their finite resources on mental health issues; yet they have themselves decided, without any act of parliament, not to impose drug laws, and treat marijuana possession as a non-crime.
It's time for the police to start imposing the laws that have been passed.
MENTAL HEALTH CALLS TO THE POLICE - 2019:
METROPOLITAN POLICE (LONDON) - 39,584 calls
SOUTH WALES POLICE - 32,145 calls
The biggest rise in such calls went to:
STAFFORDSHIRE POLICE - 2016 - 3,112 calls
2019 - 6,223 calls
Marijuana - the happy, harmless drug - (not).
