Cannabis arrests drop 46% since 2010 - police figures
Arrests for cannabis possession in England and Wales have dropped by 46% since 2010, figures obtained by BBC Breakfast suggest.

Last summer Durham Constabulary said it would no longer target cannabis users.
The BBC's Tim Muffett has been to see what impact that decision has had.
