DRUGS Minister Victoria Atkins has actually been banned from speaking about marijuana for the Government because her husband runs a giant cannabis farm.
The Home Office revealed Victoria Atkins has now ‘voluntarily recused herself from cannabis-related policy. It emerged Ms Atkins, who began her job last November, stopped working to mention her husband’s involvement in cannabis growing in MPs’ interests. Guidelines state family interests should be stated if relevant to a ministerial responsibility.Steve Moore, of drug policy think-tank Volteface, stated:”We have the ludicrous situation of the drugs minister being unable to speak in Parliament or make choices on one of the most vital parts of her job.”
Mr Kenward’s licence was released in 2016 prior to his other half ended up being a minister.Ms Atkins has actually been a staunch opponent of legalising marijuana and, as a barrister, prosecuted drug transgressors.
The Home Workplace stated she had “willingly recused herself from policy or choices relating to marijuana.” Office minister Victoria Atkins admits she doesn’t understand how many cops officers there remain in the service
