The Team has created two educational booklets for the Home Office, designed to explain to under 17-year-olds the changes in the law following tomorrow’s reclassification of cannabis from a Class B to a Class C drug. The work, which will be distributed to schools, youth clubs and leisure centres, focuses on the message that, despite reclassification, the drug remains illegal. According to the Team partner Viv Wilcock, the group wanted to create something ‘that would engage very quickly and get key messages across swiftly and simply, in a friendly, direct and non-threatening way’. The re-classification acknowledges cannabis is less harmful than other Class B drugs, but supply and possession remain illegal.
