Campaigners have flouted drug laws by establishing an illegal ‘speakeasy’ cannabis club in the North-East.
Activists battling to legalise the Class B drug staged sold-out Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations at the top secret Teesside venue, The Northern Echo can reveal.
It’s in the news. It’s no longer secret (if it ever was).
One of the first people to learn about the club was famed rapper Professor Green, who interviewed Teesside Cannabis Club’s chair, John Holliday, as part of an upcoming BBC documentary series about the debate to legalise marijuana.
There’s a documentary planned. Once again. not secret.
“It’s inevitable that this will spread and there’s nothing that can be done about it – cannabis clubs meet up in temporary locations all the time, all we’ve done is formalise it in bricks and mortar.”
Oh, I think there is something that can be done. It’s whether or not the will is there.
At the time of going to print, Cleveland Police were unavailable for comment but the force has previously said it will continue to enforce existing drugs laws.
So hop to it!
