Sir: I was pleased to read your front-page report (20 September) on Lib Dem proposals to decriminalise the use of cannabis, or at least to set up a Royal Commission on the subject of drugs misuse. These seem to me to be sound proposals from a mature party that is not frightened of the electorate.

However, I was surprised to read the proposer of the motion quoted as saying 'Legalising cannabis will remove the profit motive'. Really? Woolly-minded liberals indeed.

Yours faithfully,




20 September
