It was the first time in history that the British Parliament debated cannabis as a direct result of pressure from the public. A historic moment, especially since they were forced, by their own rules, to comply after nearly a quarter of a million signatures were collected by means of an e-petitions system. A system which, ironically enough, is owned by the government. Unfortunately, out of a potential 650 MPs only 14 took this democratic act seriously, and attended the parliamentary debate.
