Further call for cannabis debate

The chief minister is calling for a 'grown-up' debate on the issue of cannabis.

Last month, the House of Commons opposed plans to legalise the production, sale and use of the drug.

Othe nations have adopted radical new approaches in the way they deal with certain illegal substances.

Allan Bell recognises there are strong reservations but believes use of cannabis for medicinal purposes needs strong consideration.
