This follows recent reports that have stated Cocaine Offences are at a Record Level.

Am I just cynical or do you think an increase in other drug related offences may be due to a reduction in cannabis related stops, searches and arrests?

At the end of the day cannabis arrests usually assist officers in finding cannabis suppliers, who (if they aren't one and the same) in turn assist officers find those supplying other 'harder' drugs.

A soft on crime approach on cannabis in my opinion automatically has a knock on effect on other drug related crime.

But hey what do I know, I don't make policy, I only work the streets!
