UK.  Is the UK finally starting to consider legal cannabis

The UK has been one of Europe’s most backward-thinking nations when it comes to cannabis, with politicians refusing to get involved in the debate.  This week quite a lot has changed, with Police Commissioner Ron Hogg saying that the Durham Police force will not be prioritising the arrest of small scale growers or private users.  The comments caused some controversy in the UK, but actually the comments reflected general public opinion on the issue.   The suggestion not to prosecute small ‘personal’ growers would save Police and courts time and money.  It would also reflect the fact that the war on small scale cannabis cultivation has already been lost many years ago.
Two recent UK public surveys, in the Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph, have also showed overwhelming public support for cannabis legalisation.  
Here are the opinion polls from the Daily Mirror and Telegraph:
