In the UK, one million hours of police time are being wasted each year on policing the ban on smoking cannabis, the Liberal Democrats say. Research by the party drawn from official figures shows a total of 87,247 police caseloads relating to the drug were opened in 2015, with the average cost to the taxpayer per case estimated at £2,256. The estimate says that in total £31m was spent on 1,044,180 police hours. The party says the drug is already “freely available and widely used” and that regulation rather than prohibition makes sense.
