Results of the Year 9 Cannabis Debate

57% voted for legalising Cannabis because:

  • Legalisation would reduce criminalised behaviour and that there should be a license that monitors how the user is using weed and whether they are moving onto 1st class drugs.
  • Cannabis isn’t that dangerous compared to other illegal drugs
  • Can be used for medicinal purposes (cannabis oil).


39% voted against because:

  • Can cause problems with mental health
  • Makes people out of control
  • Potentially dangerous behaviour whilst high.


5% abstained because:

  • The situation is not black and white. They felt it deepened on the persons health and mental health, they should be checked first, and the amount should be minimised (all difficult to administrate).
