People who need comprehensive help to tackle their problematic cannabis use will continue to be left in the hands of the criminals operating in a illegal, unregulated market around the drug, with severe consequences, unless politicians are willing to confront the realities of its use. Legalising the use of cannabis would radically help increase the visibility of people experiencing problems with their cannabis use, allowing professionals to offer advice and recognise the signs of dependency in those presenting for purchase, and better signpost people to the appropriate level of treatment available – all helping to end the social stigma around cannabis use which so often acts as a barrier to problematic users seeking help.
