UK Parliament Forced to Discuss Cannabis Prohibition; Just 2% Of Parliament Attends

After a quarter million signatures were put forward to the British parliament’s e-petition system, the government was forced to convene a session regarding the production, sale, and consumption of marijuana.

Unfortunately, only 14 of 650 members of parliament were in attendance at the debate, though the number of signatures the e-petition received made it the third most popular ever.

Clark French, a medical marijuana patient and the director of the United Patients Alliance, filmed the debate for the Cannabis News Network. French was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 22, and uses cannabis to treat the pain.
