Campaigning for change

The cannabis law reform campaign has been going for decades now, since the original "Smokey Bears picnics" in the 1970's through the "Legalise Cannabis Campaign" (which gave rise to this website) in the mid 1970's and the massive effort of groups like the CLCIA and LCA of the 1990's then CLEAR of the 2010's, but cannabis is still illegal. This despite the issue almost never being out of the news and the harms from the illegal trade growing ever more serious.
