Get tobacco covered under the misuse of drugs act
We the undersigned propose that the tobacco plant be subject to same legal restrictions as the cannabis plant due to the overwhelming medical evidence of the damage caused by the former compared to the overwhelming evidence relating to the medical benefits of the latter ; (see http://clear-uk.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Grannys-List-Jan-2011.pdf)
Cannabis is covered under the misuse of drugs act but according to the NHS leaflet of drugs has "
• no cases of fatal overdose have been reported
• no confirmed cases of human death "
[see http://www.nta.nhs.uk/uploads/healthharmsfinal-v1.pdf ]
Tobacco is directly responsible for 140,000 deaths each year in the UK alone and 5.4 million deaths worldwide according the World Health Organisation. This is therefore a 'dangerous' plant and it's misuse must be controlled in the same way as other benign plants such as the cannabis plant.
