🧵The more I read about sexual harassment and 'rape culture' the more it shocks me that so little of it is being attributed to pornography, and so little is being done to curb porn sites and prevent access to porn by impressionable children and young people.
This week, a report by schools' regulator Ofsted found that sexual harassment is 'normalised' among school-age children. 9 in 10 girls interviewed by inspectors reported sexist name-calling and being sent unwanted explicit images "a lot" or "sometimes".…
There were reports of unwanted touching in corridors and of sexual attacks at parties and other social events. The report found that reporting is not encouraged properly, so the real scale of the problem is not known about by school staff.

Confused by this thread. Isn't possession/prescription of raw cannabis illegal?
Sorry Chris, one more Q. I did a bit of research on this back in 2018 and seem to remember concluding that it is only cannabis-derived products (eg cannabis oils, sprays etc) available for prescription under the new rules, rather than the raw drug itself (as pictured by STV).
The wording in the doc you cite seems to confirm this, stating that Schedule 2 substances include “cannabis-based products for medicinal use in humans”.

Curious to know how raw cannabis (grass) is being prescribed in Scotland. You wouldn’t see this with other drugs (eg heroin).
