"One man can completely change the character of a country and the industry of its people by dropping a single seed into fertile soil."
John C Gifford
"The sale of...[marijuana] for personal use in the Netherlands has not given rise to levels of use significantly higher than in countries which pursue a highly repressive policy."
Drugs Policy in the Netherlands: Continuity and Change, 1995
"I started on glue and then went to lager and speed. I drifted into heroin because as a kid growing up everybody told me, 'don't smoke marijuana, it will kill you'."
Irvine Welsh

What's in it for You?

It's a good question. After all, what would be the point of spending an hour writing to people who aren't going to take any notice?

The point is they will. Very few people write to complain about anything and those that do get due consideration (see the feedback page of Fax your MP).

To give you an idea of how few people it takes to make a difference take the figures for the most controversial adverts of 2001. The FCUK campaign received only 142 complaints (Guardian 2 May 02) yet these mere hundred and fifty people made a noise millions heard.

The reason you should bother, though, is because we each have a responsibility to secure our own freedom. And by so doing we secure the freedom of others. Freedoms have to be fought for and are not easily won. They are only ever achieved when enough people rise up together.

There comes a time in life when we have to stand up and be counted. If you're a cannabis smoker, or if you just believe in freedom, this is it. No one coffee shop will change the law and all coffee shops need help. This is a crucial time for us because if we don't seize this opportunity now we could wait many more years for another one.

So if you believe any one of the following is true:


Then please tell your police, your council and your MP.

And urge two other people to do the same.
