According to Vice, the UK has its first cannabis party.
CISTA, which stands for Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol, wants to legalize marijuana because they believe the War on Drugs has failed and that new direction has to be taken.
“There is no drug policy related political party here in the UK. That’s why we started it. If it was already there, we wouldn’t need to,” said Paul Birch, the group’s founder and financial backer.
One of CISTA’s major project is recruiting 100 candidates that are pro-pot. Right now, the group says they have five.
Question is: Could America have its first Cannabis Party with its growing support for legalization?
