Majority of U.K. Residents Support Legalizing or Decriminalizing Cannabis

53% of residents in the U.K. support legalizing the production and supply of cannabis, or at the very least decriminalizing its possession. This is according to polling released today, conducted by Ipsos MORI, one of the nation’s top polling firms.

The poll was orderemarijuana-england-ukd by the Transform Drug Policy Foundation, a registered charity that considers itself “UK’s leading centre of expertise on drug policy reform”.

The poll also found that 67% support the “government commissioning a full independent review of drug policy”, which includes examining the impact of legalizing the supply and production, and decriminalizing possession, of other illegal drugs.

This comes not long after the country’s Home Affairs Select Committee called for a review of U.K.’s drug policy, requesting a royal commission to consider the decriminalization of all illegal drugs.
