‘It’s great, I recommend it,’ said one of the FDs surveyed, while another argued: ‘Cannabis should be treated the same way as alcohol.’
Even some of the 60% of FDs who said they had not tried the drug expressed support for decriminalisation.

The poll also revealed support for allowing cannabis to be used on prescription for certain medical conditions.
Six per cent of the poll of 250 FDs declined to say whether or not they had tried cannabis.
