Back in May, London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced that a commission would be launched to explore, among other things, cannabis policy reform. Cannabis reform is spreading across the European continent at an ever-increasing rate in most countries. However, the United Kingdom is not one of them.
When cannabis reform cannot be achieved at a national level, it's wise for cannabis activists to focus their efforts locally. If enough local victories are won, it builds momentum for more extensive reform efforts at a higher level.
With that in mind, any changes in cannabis policy and/or enforcement in London would be a great thing, and that appears to be something that many Londoners support, according to the results of a new poll. Per excerpts from YouGov:
"New YouGov data finds that Londoners support decriminalizing cannabis within the boundaries of the capital by 50% to 33%. However, opinion is divided across party lines, with 64% of the capital's Labour voters supporting such a move compared to only 34% of Conservative voters."
