I READ your article Cannabis: what you need to know ( ECHO, July 21)
with great interest.

About cannabis you reported: "smoking cannabis holds the same risks
as smoking a normal cigarette. Psychologically, is to reported to
cause anxiety and paranoia in some users.

The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs found a 'probable but
weak causal link between psychotic illness and cannabis use'.
Cannabis is not chemically addictive."

So I have to ask why the Government is pending billions of pounds
taxpayers' money trying to stop people growing and using it. Why are
they so set at treating cannabis users differently to people that
choose to drink alcohol or smoke tobacco, both known to be dangerous
and addictive to some people and with a definite causal link between
booze and psychotic illness.

Clearly the law is wrong and the lawmakers have some explaining to do.
