UK: Cannabis Enthusiasts To Gather In City Park For Picnic Pot Protest


Cannabis supporters will gather in a city park in this weekend to hold a picnic protesting against current UK drug policy.

For the past three years the Devon Cannabis Club has held yearly “protest picnics” at Flowerpots Playing Fields in Exeter.

On Saturday, August 27, the club will once again be protesting against UK drug policy by gathering to exchange ideas with fellow activists.

Enthusiasts will be able engaging with the public and explaining the work of the United Kingdom Cannabis Social Clubs – and why they think cannabis policy is a failure and needs to be reformed.

Any money raised will go towards equipment for future events, promotional materials, and eventually the hiring of venues for members-only club meetings and events.

Deej Sullivan, press officer for Devon Cannabis Club, said: “All of our events so far have been highly successful, and we hope that this one will be no different.

“Devon and Cornwall Police are aware that the event is taking place, and will I’m sure continue their excellent relationship with us as organisers. No arrests were made at any previous event and we do not anticipate any being made this time.

“We are looking forward to seeing more people than ever coming along to get involved and find out a little more about us and what the club stands for.”
