Briefly let me explain my views on Cannabis. I am aware of the report you mention and the fact that, as with a lot of crimes, the BAME community is unfairly treated.
I would support the reduction of cannabis usage from a criminal to a civil offence and also the fairer control of medical cannabis both in usage and production. I would certainly strive to reduce the use of valuable police resources for the detection and prosecution of low level growth for personal use.
I spent quite some time living and working in Holland and am aware of the very different approach adopted there to what is still an illegal drug.
However as PCC it would still be a requirement that I support the law so the only way I could move further would be if the law was to change.
