Decriminalise drugs before we become embroiled in a drug abuse scandal, MPs urge Cameron


David Cameron should decriminalise all drug use in England and Wales before sitting MPs from becoming embroiled in further allegations of criminal activity, say a group of MPs.

With crimes committed by MPs already quite numerous, anything which reduces the number of potential crimes for them to be found guilty of must be a good thing, according sources at the House of Commons.

A sitting MP, who wished to remain nameless, told us that reducing the number of crimes available to those representing constituencies across England and Wales was a positive step for British politics.

“Any voter caring to glance at newspaper headlines over the past couple of years will have been truly aghast at the illegal antics of those voted into power,” he began.

“To think that there remains countless opportunities for MP’s to err from the expectations of the British public, places us in an invidious position.”

“So what damage is there in removing one of the most harmful allegations left open to us – drug abuse – from the buffet of crimes we frequently avail of.”

Drug decriminalisation

Proponent of drug decriminalisation, Sheila Mount, dismissed calls for a relaxing of the law to suit politicians.

“Loosening drug regulations for the benefit of MP’s usage?”

“No.”

“Permitting medical trials of potentially life-threatening substances for MP’s?”

“Yes.”
