Cannabis Legalisation

As more countries and jurisdictions are relaxing their laws around cannabis, Rob, Elle and Lindsey find out What’s the Crack? Although Rob technically doesn’t, because he's been temporarily replaced with Dr Amir Englund of the National Addiction Centre, King’s College London! So, what are the choices in cannabis legislation, is it just prohibition or legalisation? Could some types of cannabis actually reduce psychosis? Will legalisation effect potency? And if cannabis is legalised, will everyone start using it?
