This report describes legislative changes in the UK regarding the reclassification of cannabis from a Class B to C drug. This report discusses how cannabis reclassification was put into practice, the impact of the reclassification on police resources and their views about the change. The report concludes that if the policing of cannabis possession is to be seen as equitable and fair and the justice system to be seen as transparent, then policing needs to be non-discriminatory, monitored adequately and evaluated critically at regular intervals.
