This is Tory MP Victoria Atkins MP, the UK minister responsible for drugs policy:
Atkins strongly and totally opposes the use of cannabis for either medical or recreational use and supports the government’s hard-line position that there is ‘no therapeutic value’ in cannabis.
For example, Ms Atkins spoke out forcefully against deregulation of cannabis in Parliament in July 2017:
“I declare an interest: I used to prosecute national-level drug barons. We are talking about gun-toting criminals, who think nothing of shooting each other and the people who carry their drugs for them. What on earth does my hon. Friend think their reaction will be to the idea of drugs being regulated? Does he really think that these awful people are suddenly going to become law-abiding citizens?”
