"If you vote for Labour or Tory you will have wasted your vote. It will mean nothing and nothing will change. Please give CLEAR your protest vote."
Cannabis Law Reform (CLEAR) has published its leaflet for the Corby & East Northants by-election. It will be delivered to every household in the constituency and handed out in town and village centres during the election campaign.
CLEAR states that the cannabis issue shows just how irresponsible and out of touch are the government and the major parties. They take no notice of public opinion, of science or of evidence. Instead they are concerned with the interests of the alcohol and pharmaceutical industries and with scare stories in the tabloid press.
Peter Reynolds, leader of CLEAR and the candidate in the by-election said:
"Whatever you think about cannabis, it's an excellent example of how hypocritical and dishonest the major parties are. Vote for CLEAR to show them that on cannabis and every issue it is the voters and the evidence they must listen to, not their chums in big business or newspaper editors."
Cannabis Law Reform (CLEAR) is a political party registered with the Electoral Commission under the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (PPERA) to promote the cause of cannabis law reform, with the aim of replacing the anarchic mess of prohibition with a framework of real legal control which would allow proper control of the trade, ensure proper regulation of the product in terms of strength and purity and provide proper protection for vulnerable people such as children.
