Could 'The Brighton Model' help the seaside city make millions with weed?
In 2012, Green Party councillor Ben Duncan suggested that cannabis cafes should be licensed in the city in a bid to boost tourism.
In 2014, the Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, Caroline Lucas, petitioned the government to review the Misuse of Drugs Act, obtaining 134,811 signatures. A Green Party's working group on drugs policy is working on what is called the "Brighton Model" for cannabis legalisation, based on a similar policy reform that was first proposed in Copenhagen.
