mike dobsonMike Dobson, a self-confessed cannabis user for 25 years, is seeking a judicial review following the Home Office’s refusal to issue a licence to allow Preston Cannabis Club members to possess up to half an ounce of cannabis a week without prosecution. Cannabis is a Grade B illegal drug and it’s against the law to carry even a small amount. Mike and his fellow club directors are seeking a judicial review after their application for a licence to supply cannabis to club members was rejected by the Home Office. If it fails he could be back in jail – a second charge against him for cultivating cannabis has been adjourned pending the review’s outcome. (See also: UK’s Cannabis Social Clubs come of age)
