Cannabis consultation before the end of the year

Focus set to be on medicinal use

A public consultation on cannabis use in the Isle of Man will be launched before the end of the year.

The news comes as it was revealed by the chief constable drugs offences were the most prevalent type of crime in the Isle of Man for the first time last month, with 60% of those involving cannabis possession.

The consultation is set to focus on the medicinal use of the drug, but may ask some questions about the recreational use of it as well.
