London based label Dred Collective is thrilled to announce the release of the latest EP from Beach Club & Relic. ‘Rave New World’ will be available for free download through our Bandcamp on Friday September 19th.

‘Rave New World’ marks the end of our free track series in which Dred Collective buried it’s roots, with over 150 free tracks to date we felt it relevant to mark the end with an EP that infuses Footwork and Jungle together into classics of their own accord.

Their blend on the hybrid footwork/jungle picks the best elements from early jungle and footwork and brings it forward into the new world.

Cannabis-smoking couples are ‘less likely to engage in domestic violence’

Study found the more often couple smoked cannabis, they less likely they were to engage in aggressive acts towards each other.


Husbands and wives who frequently smoke cannabis are less likely to engage in domestic violence than those who consume the drug less regularly, a new study has suggested.


Researchers from Yale University, University of Buffalo and Rutgers followed 634 married couples for nine years.

They found that when couples used cannabis three times or more each month reported the lowest number domestic violence incidents (intimate partner violence) over the first nine years of marriage.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) was defined by the researchers as acts of physical aggressions, including hitting,

beating and chocking.


The couples completed regular questionnaires throughout the study on how often they used the drug and other substances, such as alcohol.

They were also asked to report violence from their spouse within the last year, and any violent acts that had occurred during the year before marriage.

The study concluded that the more often both spouses smoked cannabis, the less likely they were to engage in domestic violence.

Lead researcher Kenneth Leonard, director of the UB Research Institute on Addictions, said the findings suggest cannabis use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards a person’s partner, but only over the course of a year.

“As in other survey studies of marijuana and partner violence, our study examines patterns of marijuana use and the occurrence of violence within a year period,” he said. “It does not examine whether using marijuana on a given day reduces the likelihood of violence at that time.”

Mr Leonard noted other factors could be responsible for the link between husbands and wives who use cannabis and lower rates of domestic violence.

“It is possible, for example, that — similar to a drinking partnership — couples who use marijuana together may share similar values and social circles,” said Mr Leonard, “and it is this similarity that is responsible for reducing the likelihood of conflict.”

The authors suggested chronic cannabis users exhibit “blunted emotional reaction to threat stimuli” which could also reduce the likelihood of aggressive behaviour.

Mr Leonard is now hoping for further research examining day-to-day cannabis and alcohol use and the likelihood of domestic violence occurring on the same day before drawing stronger conclusions.

The study was published in the online edition of Psychology of Addictive Behaviors in August.


Judge REFUSES to jail cancer victim who has twice been caught growing cannabis for pain relief

Jonathan Yates, 65, whose throat has been badly damaged by radiation treatment for tongue cancer, says cannabis is the only effective pain killer he can find


Jonathan Yates and Judge William Hart

A judge today refused to jail a cancer victim who has twice been caught growing cannabis – saying he would ‘not be able to live with himself’ if he locked him up.

Jonathan Yates, 65, whose throat has been badly damaged by radiation treatment for tongue cancer, says cannabis is the only effective pain killer he can find.

Although he was caught cultivating the drug in 2011 he went on growing it in his home in Brockworth, Gloucester, and was arrested again in April .

He pleaded guilty at Gloucester crown court today to producing 36 plants in his home and to supplying some to his lodger.

But after hearing of his plight Judge William Hart refused to jail him – or even pass a suspended sentence.

“You know that ordinarily a custodial sentence would be considered and might even be inevitable for this sort of offence but I would not be able to live with myself if I sent you to prison,” said the judge.

“That would express no humanity or compassion and it would be a sad day if these courts lost sight of humanity and compassion when it is appropriate.”

The judge gave Yates, a property letting agent, a 12 months conditional discharge.

But he said his decision should not be seen as a green light for others to grow cannabis with impunity. It was an exceptional sentence for a man in ‘grave circumstances,’ he said.

“Yours is a wholly exceptional set of circumstances and you have my sincere sympathy for your position,” said Judge Hart.

A cannabis plantetty

Outside court Mr Yates, a dad of two and grandfather of four who speaks with a husky, croaky voice because of his illness, described the judge as a ‘fabulous man.’

He told how he had been reacting badly to morphine for his throat pain after radiotherapy in 2011 and then tried cannabis and found it far better and without side effects.

Many countries have legalised it, especially for medicinal use, and it is time the UK did the same, he said.

Mr Yates has lost his sense of taste and smell and cannot eat solids because of his illness.

Prosecutor Janine Wood told the court police raided Yates’ home on 9th April and found 36 cannabis plants growing in a bedroom. Itt was estimated they would have produced between £10,040 and £30,240 worth of the drug.

Yates told police it was for his own use and the only other person who knew about it or used any was his lodger, Anthony Young.

On 10th July 2012 Yates had been given a six months conditional discharge for his first offence or producing cannabis, she added.

Joe Maloney, defending, told the court “This is a man who is very, very ill indeed. The only thing he has found which ameliorates his pain is cannabis.

“He has been prescribed morphine in the past but it has caused him all sorts of difficulties. Pain relief is all he is interested in and for that cannabis seems to assist him.

“This is a man who is terminally ill, who is in considerable discomfort and pain. He obtained cannabis seeds which were given to him by his sister so he could aid his suffering himself without having to rely on drugs dealers and the illicit drug market.

“He is basically trying to self medicate with an illegal substance. He knows that it is illegal. But it is the only thing which helps with his pain.”

Mr Maloney went on “He accepts he has done this before….” and the judge intervened “And will do it again in all likelihood! He has greater things to worry about than respecting the law, I suspect.”

Mr Maloney said the reality for Yates is that if he cannot grow his own supply he will have to be involved in a ‘murky world’ of street dealers – “which frightens him as a 65 year old man who has not who is not streetwise.”

He went on “The law prevents him growing cannabis for mecical relief and that is the law. We are stuck with it and he is stuck with it. “

Passing sentence Judge Hart told Yates “You have been suffering for some time now with a very serious cancer and you have undergone treatment which has been, I am sure, very unpleasant and very distressing. The prognosis for you is bleak.

“You find some comfort in the consumption of cannabis. You drink whisky and you also find comfort in that. The pain relief provided by doctors does not provide you with what you need.

“Someone in your position is very different to the usual defendant who comes before this court charged with this offence.”

The judge ordered destruction of the cannabis and all Yates’ drug growing paraphernalia – but allowed him to keep the box in which the equipment was kept after Yates said it has great sentimental value because it belonged to his father who died when he was two and a half.

After the hearing Mr Yates said he would have been ashamed if he had been jailed because he would have felt he was letting down his 20 year old university student daughter, who has been a great support to him. He also has a son aged 39.

“Obviously I know that cannabis is illegal in this country at the moment,” he said. “But you don’t have to look far around the world to find places where it is legal – 11 States in America, South Africa, Brazil, some parts of Australia, Holland, Turkey. They all allow growing of cannabis for its medicinal qualities.”

He said his radiation treatment in 2011 had reduced the tumour so that he is now in remission but it had left him without a sense of taste or smell and without the ability to produce saliva. He constantly has to drink water and use an artificial saliva spray.

Neither is he able to chew or swallow food and is fed through a tube directly into his stomach.

It is the pain in his throat at the base of his tongue that a nightly smoke of 3-4 joints of cannabis relieves so effectively he said.
