Conservative Party Deputy Chairman, James Cleverly’s cousin has purchased a 4,000-acre farm in Sierra Leone to import and grow cannabis in Sierra Leone.
Last week, Chris Cleverly, chairman of London based Black Commodities became one of the few companies to get a license in the small country on the west coast of Africa.
James Cleverly MP is the latest high profile Conservative MP with dubious links to the new emerging legal marijuana industry.
His cousin, James Cleverly, is the Deputy Chairman of the UK Conservative Party, who is on the record as saying cannabis is “a waste of money, waste of time and just not very good for your future prospects,” despite the fact he openly admitted to smoking pot while he was a university, as well as watching porn.
When quizzed whether he inhaled, the Brexit supporting Tory MP said: “Of course, that’s the point, to paraphrase Obama.”
One of the directors of Black Commodities is former Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness in Lincolnshire, who stood down in the 2015 General Election.
The company plans to grow and export cannabis to Europe from their 4,000-acre farm in Sierra Leone, where siblings James and Chris’ mothers are from for use in cannabis-based medicines. One potential customer will be Theresa May’s husband, Philip May, who works as an investment relationship manager for the American financial services company, Capital Group, which has a 22% stake in GW Pharmaceuticals who the Government have given a license to produce cannabis-based medicines.
GW Pharma currently sources much of their cannabis from British Sugar, headed by the husband of Theresa May’s prohibitionist Drugs Minister, Victoria Atkins, where they have the world’s largest legal cannabis grow in an 18-hectare Greenhouse in Wissington, Norfolk, England.
Best friends in high places
Chris and James’s British fathers are brothers and their mothers are best friends.
Block Commodities has referred to itself as a ‘pot stock’ as its shares are listed on the NEX Exchange, which is an obscure London stock exchange. The average investor can buy and sell Block Commodities shares, but it is not a very liquid market, meaning it can be hard to sell them.
They specialise in the African agriculture market and have taken a decision to focus on the cannabis market and has made an agreement to buy £4,000,000 in shares of Sierra Leonean company, Green Belt, which has been given the all clear by the Sierra Leone government to grow, process and export cannabis on 4,000 acres of farmland.
Botched changes to the UK law
Last year, the government made botched changes to the laws in the UK relating to medical cannabis, although very few people have actually received a legal prescription, because you have to jump through hoops of fire to obtain them and then pay thousands of pounds to get it, since the NHS refuses to pay.
No doubt, they do not see the UK as their main market for their powerful cannabis-based medicines, presumably as the Government doesn’t want to admit it’s been lying to us for years that cannabis has no therapeutic benefits.
With the relaxation of laws in North America and much of the world the Tories want in on the so-called Green Rush, but it’s not the medical benefits they see, it’s the money.
Stinky Tory corruption smellier than the smelliest skunk
The Tory corruption stinks more than the smelliest skunk.
Medical cannabis consumers in the UK who wish to medicate will still be forced to break the law by either by sourcing on the black market or growing their own, risking up to 14-years in prison. The Tories are determined to abuse power to protect their monopoly of cannabis grows and cannabis-derived medicines that are for foreign markets, making the UK the largest exporter of legal weed in the world.
Corrupt Tories waste valuable police resources on a harmless plant in the middle of a knife-crime epidemic while at the same time they are lining their greedy pockets from the cannabis industry.
Drug Dealer in Chief, Theresa May, has said she has no intention of legalising cannabis in the UK and sees it as her job to protect the hugely profitable cannabis grows of companies with dodgy connections to the Tory Party. She uses taxpayers’ money to eliminate any competition using the police to shut down any grows that do not have a license that her government has dished out to her mates, meaning greedy Tories stand to make a huge financial gains, while the rest of us face fines or even imprisonment if they dare to do the same thing as companies connected to the highest echelons of the Conservative Party, even though on a much smaller scale.
The Tory corruption stinks more than the smelliest skunk and they don’t even try to hide it. They are literally taking the piss.
