    This is yet another example of wasted police and court time. Cannabis (Marijuana) should be legalised and regulated in a similar manner to alcohol and tobacco. This would not only save time for our police and courts, but would also create thousands of legal, taxable jobs, helping to give our economy a much needed boost.
