Hundreds of people are taking part in a pro-cannabis protest in Leeds after council bosses failed with a legal bid to stop the event going ahead.

The council’s application for the injunction was turned down at a hearing at Leeds County Court on Wednesday.

Documents submitted to the court on behalf of the council said many people would go to the event intending to “engage in the consumption and supply of controlled drugs”.

Council officers said a similar demo held on Woodhouse Moor last year attracted around 2,000 protesters.

The rally is one of a number of Cannabis 420 legalisation events taking place around the world today. (April 19)
