Rethink: Cannabis e-campaign launched
Read more... Schizophrenia Advocacy
The UK Advocacy and Support group "Rethink" has launched what they are calling an "e-campaign" on Cannabis.
Rethink, who has been at the forefront of the cannabis campaign, has been calling for:
- An investment in measures that can work to reduce risk, rather than changing the classification of cannabis.
- A long-term awareness and information campaign targeted particularly at young people, long-term users of cannabis and those people with a family history of severe mental illness. We believe that such a campaign should be led by the Department of Health, rather than the Home Office.
- More funding for new research into the relationship between severe mental illness and cannabis and the most effective ways of reducing use.
- Developing policies to deal specifically with dealing in cannabis around mental health facilities, similar to those for dealing around schools.
