Edinburgh Evening News: SSP set to light up for drugs stunt

SSP legalise cannabis

SSP activists were to dress up as cigarettes, beer and a giant spliff, and form an identity parade while party drugs spokesman Kevin Williamson, dressed as a policeman, will ask passers-by to spot the odd one out.

Mr Williamson, who has announced plans to open Edinburgh’s first cannabis café, said: "I would like to see the supply of cannabis taken out of the hands of the criminal black market and available instead via licensed premises like alcohol and tobacco.

"David Blunkett’s plans to reduce cannabis to a category C drug is itself a cop-out, but doing so and maintaining the supply in the hands of the criminal black market may lead to the worst of all worlds."
