Cannabis News : Government considering on the spot fines

Anyone caught carrying cannabis for a second time could face an on-the-spot fine of £80 instead of a warning under a new proposal from the Home Office.

Cannabis is expected to be re-classified in the UK as a class B drug from early 2009 (january 2009)
