Only 50% correct.

Same sex marriage is now legal but From 18 December 2018, the Misuse of Drugs act was amended by the Misuse of Drugs (Medicinal Cannabis)
Amendment Act 2018 (2018 No 54) allowing for much broader use of medical marijuana, making the drug available to terminally ill patients in the
last 12 months of life.

On 18 December 2018, the Labour government announced a nationwide, binding referendum on the legality of cannabis for personal use, set to
be held as part of the 2020 general election. On 7 May 2019, it announced that the referendum would be a yes/no question to enact a yet to be
created piece of legislation. Despite an election commitment from the government that the referendum would be binding the act the will need to
be passed like any other piece of legislation with a vote as the government is not, in fact, bound to the results of the referendum
