Re: Should the supply of cannabis be legalised now?

It is incorrect that DrugScience is funded by companies that produce cannabis. DN founded and chairs the charity DrugScience, which is funded by individual donations, grants from the Open Society Foundation and book sales. DrugScience is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, addressing drug policy in general. The DrugScience Medical Cannabis Working Group is a multi-sectorial working partnership of academic, NGOs and patient organisations that is supported by an unrestricted grant from a consortium of medical cannabis industry partners.
