Quote:
Campaigners have been holding a march and rally in Glasgow calling for the
legalisation of cannabis.
The group, part of the Scottish Socialist Party, has been campaigning to
change the drug laws since 2000.
Scottish Socialist Youth (SSY) argues that cannabis is less harmful than
either alcohol or tobacco.
The SSP made reform of the drug laws a major plank of its election
manifesto, claiming that the policy of drug prohibition has failed.
The march, from the city's George Square, moved on to a rally in
Kelvingrove Park.
Smoking jpints
An SSY spokesman said: "Most of those taking illegal drugs are young people
involved in occasional recreational use.
"The vast majority of these smoke cannabis, which has been proved to be far
less harmful than alcohol."
The party wants the immediate legalisation and licensed sale of cannabis
and the decriminalisation of all other illegal drugs.
Strathclyde Police said the Bring Your Own Joints event passed off
peacefully without any arrests.
Several members of the crowd of more than 100 were openly smoking jpints,
which police confiscated.
