Weed Campaigner Running for London Mayor Other | Tuesday 9th February 2016 | Arash london Drugs Cannabis Should Cannabis be legalised? That is the question that has been debated for decades. Now a 79 year old has decided to take the lead in the crusade to legalise the plant by joining the mayoral campaign. With backing from the multi-millionaire founder of the social networking site Bebo, Lee Harris is now attempting to gather a total of 330 signatures, one from each borough as well as £20,000 in order to compete against the Tory and Labour candidates. Being one of the first to seek prohibition of Cannabis in the UK, Mr Harris is now hoping to “undo the damage” he assisted in causing decades ago by now becoming the party candidate for CISTA (Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol). He states that the laws which prohibit Cannabis within the UK are wrong as well as highlighting the medical uses of the herb, and that the UK must change with the times.
