Theresa May Asked If She Ever Smoked Cannabis, Twitter Melts Down At Answer

Shocker.

In case you forgot, the naughtiest thing Theresa May has ever done is “run through fields of wheat”. Really relatable and in touch with the common man there.

Well it turns out the PM’s wheat frolicking was an entirely sober activity and not the result of her blazing a giant zoot beforehand, as May has come out and admitted she has never smoked cannabis in her life. Shocker!

May was asked whether she had ever smoked marijuana as the government announced a review into the use of medicinal cannabis.

The PM’s official spokesperson responded flatly: “No”.

Interestingly though, Theresa’s husband Philip May owns company Capital Group which is the biggest investor of GW Pharmaceuticals, one of the biggest cultivators of cannabis in the world.

The company grows it in the UK, where it’s banned, and exports it to other countries where it’s legal. Raking it in.

Anyway, Twitter had a (wheat?) field day with it:

Some fair points there.

The good news is that the Home Secretary has announced there will be an official review into the use of medicinal cannabis in the UK.

Sajid David clarified that the ban on recreational use will continue (boo), but he will consider evidence for giving the drug on prescription.

It has become clear to me that the position we find ourselves in currently is not satisfactory. It’s not satisfactory for the parents, it’s not satisfactory for the doctors, and it’s not satisfactory for me. I have now come to the conclusion that it is time to review the scheduling of cannabis.’
