Reader’s comment: Thin end of the wedge


In response to Kathy Gyngell: The Home Secretary has acted prematurely and dangerously on medical cannabis, Reuben Wade wrote:

There may be a case for medicinal cannabis in some cases, perhaps quite a few cases. But medicinal cannabis is the thin end of a wedge that very wealthy companies who are entirely careless of public health hope will crack open the law and lead to legal cannabis use from which they hope to make billions.

The last thing Britain needs is a population of incapacitated stoners to add to the population already degraded by booze. But hey, so long as there’s profit and taxes in it, who cares?
