This perhaps highlights that the Conservative party social media team are happy to court controversy in this election and don’t see action like this on Twitter as something that will put voters off. We'll see if they are right in a few weeks' time.

The sale of cannabis to over-18s
LibDems want to legalise cannabis and spend more on mental health......
