Marijuana in UK update 2019

There’s no any hot information, except only one curious rather than significant fact that a group of British MPs (that stands for ‘Member of Parliament’) have visited Canada recently for scientific purpose to find out how marijuana works, to see the charts, study economic effects, etc. And since then they speak in favour of recreational cannabis in UK.

“I want the cannabis market legalised, regulated and taken away from crime gangs,” says Labour MP David Lammy: Cannabis to be fully legal in UK within years, – find the videoclips by this url on ‘Independent’ showing Sir Norman Lamb using cannabis oil, the first British politician to consume marijuana on camera.

Cannabis Law UK

Hemp flower is in fact a controlled drug no matter what the THC content is, and there is no legal difference between hemp plant in UK or marijuana plant in UK they are all ‘cannabis plant’, a Class B controlled substance.

Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, section 37:

“Cannabis” (except in the expression “cannabis resin”) means any plant of the genus Cannabis or any part of any such plant (by whatever name designated) except that it does not include cannabis resin or any of the following products after separation from the rest of the plant, namely —

(a) mature stalk of any such plant,

(b) fibre produced from mature stalk of any such plant, and

(c) seed of any such plant; (follow the url, first-class seeds they deliver to UK)

Whether it is hemp or cannabis – it makes no separate distinction. Only the Stalk and Seed become non controlled and therefore legal, once separated from the plant. Everything else remains a controlled Class B drug and carries severe penalties.

 

Thailand Gov’t Speeds-up Pioneering Marijuana legal market of South East Asia

We have reported before about South Korea and Thailand pioneering marijuana legal market in South East Asia by making the medical use legal. Quite a strong record in history for a country, and how many people love Thailand so many people ask now – what is going to happen next, and the Thailand Government responds now to us:

Prime Minister of Thailand, and the former military government leader, Prayut Chan O Cha has stated recently, few days ago, about the country’s policy for cannabis and especially for the revenues and other opportunities it is promising for Thai people: “The study and technological development of marijuana, hemp, and other medicinal herbs should be sped up for the medical industry to create economic opportunity and income for the people”.

Public health minister, following Mr. Chan O Cha’s lead, has confirmed the priority goal to involve all Thais into cannabis cultivation business to make money from herb and medical marijuana, including that from medical tourism (but not limited to it, of course).

Sources say the marijuana market in Asia may reach $8.4 billion by end of 2024, for sake of comparison Canadian marijuana market is expected to be at $6.6 billion by pretty same milestone: other sources state so. And this is a block of regards and thankyou’es, hahaha, and we feel grateful for the head image of General Chan-O-Cha, which is withdrawn from wikipedia over here .
