This is an initiative that I support... it gives officers information on which to base their decision-making around whether or not to use discretion or to arrest a member of public.

While the police and policing organisations support Cancard and helped to implement it agreeing that law enforcement do not wish to criminalise patients, the law on possession of cannabis has not yet changed, so it is helpful to be prepared for the chance of a stop.
