UK: Police on stand-by as park set to host ‘cannabis picnic’
Yorkshire Evening Post

Members of the Leeds Cannabis Social Club were due to gather on Saturday, September 5, at Hyde Park in what they called a peaceful “act of civil disobedience”.
The group is one of several across the country that are campaigning for changes to drug laws.
A spokesman said: “We think that the time police are made to spend dealing with cannabis consumers is a waste of their valuable time and money and a waste of the tax payers money.
“Cannabis consumers would all very much like to have a social space to use so that we can consume cannabis, responsibly, in a well ventilated venue where it will not offend any member of the public”
Insp Howie Milner, of the inner north west neighbourhood policing team, said: “We are aware of the proposed event and will respond appropriately to any offences that occur.”
