The UK took another step this week in downgrading cannabis from a so-called
class B drug to a class C drug, according to this article in The Guardian. As a

"Possession of cannabis will no longer be an arrestable offence in most cases,

The change is slated to take effect on January 29, 2004. I was alerted to
The Guardian article by Last One Speaks.
