uk cannabis clubHardyal Dhindsa, who is the lead on substance abuse for the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, has said the war on drugs is not working. He said it was time to look at other ways of tackling drug addiction and use. Mr Dhindsa, who is also the police and crime commissioner (PCC) for Derbyshire, had previously met three people involved in cannabis clubs to discuss how they worked. He praised the clubs' self-regulation. "What impressed me was that they are offering support, it is regulated, they have got a membership," he said. "They are not allowing people to make profit out of this and allowing for personal use, which many people do in this country irrespective of what the law is."
