An "amount" of thanks Cheshire Police I feel an "amount" safer knowing that an "amount" of cannabis has been taken into custody so that a consenting adult cannot display an "amount" of free will.

What reason did they have for stopping the van on the motorway ??. There is no grass verge so he was stopped on the hard shoulder, Not the safest of places, Its safer to smoke the stuff .

am pretty sure the police may have some form of training in the pulling over of vehicles on motorways...... just a hunch might be wrong

Surely the point is they wanted to stop him being on grass.

“Leaving the drugs market in the hands of criminals causes huge and unnecessary harms to individuals, communities and entire countries, with the poor the hardest hit. We spend billions of pounds without preventing the wide availability of drugs. It is time to replace our failed war on drugs with a strict system of legal regulation, to make the world a safer, healthier place, especially for our children.” - Bob AinsworthMember of UK Parliament & Former Secretary of State for Defence

Just say NO to prohibition, for it causes more harm than any drug, and is a bigger economic drain.

I doubt very much a the police would stop a vehicle on a motorway where there was not a place of relative safety...ie hard shoulder.
Are you sure that was not a broken down vehicle and a Highways Officer (they do look similar)...

It could very well be broken down, It was the police, They park behind with the lights flashing for both break downs and stops so I cant be sure. I have seen it happen in the same spot a few times.
Myself I would carry on till the hard shoulder but if broken down then I couldnt..
