There has been a great debate in recent months about legalizing weed. One particularly excellent addition to the debate was Professor Green’s recent documentary ‘Is it Time to Legalise Weed?’ (available on iPlayer here http://bbc.in/2v9YvY2). Professor Green sets out on a journey that takes him from drug-stash robbers on the streets to senior politicians in Westminster, to discover “what weed is now”.
The economic argument for legalizing weed has been particularly important. The Liberal Democrats included legalization as part of their general election manifesto and made the claim that a regulated cannabis market in the UK would raise £1bn annually. In an article in The Guardian from May 17th entitled ‘Liberal Democrats: we would raise £1bn in tax by legalising cannabis’ (https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/may/17/liberal-democrats-1bn-tax-legalising-cannabis) Jessica Elgot reports that according to research commissioned by Nick Clegg when he was deputy prime minister estimated that ‘aggregate annual government benefits would be between £750m and £1.05bn.’
