Police urge return to tough line on cannabis

PUBLISHED June 28, 2004

Police are demanding a U-turn over the softening of the law on cannabis, claiming it has brought a 'sense of lawlessness' to the streets as smokers flaunt their habit.

Officers say more people are openly taking and selling cannabis in public, with calculated attempts to provoke retaliation, according to the chair of the Police Federation.
