Queen crowbars cannabis legalisation into speech


Queen Elizabeth II State Opening of Parliament in London, Britain - 09 May 2012

THE Queen has announced the legalisation of cannabis, against the government’s wishes.

The monarch used her speech at the opening of parliament to overrule the government’s firm stance on marijuana.

She said: “It is such nonsense that puff is still illegal. I fail to see how it is any more harmful than fags, less so perhaps if smoked in a vapouriser.

“Personally I prefer a vape anyway because it’s smoother and better for one’s health, but that’s personal opinion – I don’t want to get all political here.

“Anyway weed is legal now. And that’s that.”

Later in the speech, a bill banning wild animals in circuses was amended by the Queen to add “except tigers and those funny little monkeys”.

The Queen also improvised a short section outlawing the use of fennel: “You always get it at state dinners and it’s rank.”
