What are the arguments and evidence in support of the legislation of cannabis in the uk? Are they sufficiently persuasive?

It is a question related to the sub discipline (criminology) and other interdisciplinary subjects such as politics and media.

The module is drugs and crime control. As recent countries moving towards legislating the use of cannabis there has been a lot of debate around the justification in legalising such drug.

Comparison with international examples could help in backing up some arguments.
