The legalization of cannabis in the UK could lead to big business

Submitted by Marijuana News For more than 60 years, the debate surrounding the ­legalisation of cannabis has been driven by activists – mostly hippies, new-age healers and liberal newspaper editors.

Pro-legalisation campaigners have been thwarted by a combination of British conservatism, risk-averse politicians and the evidence that super-strong strains of cannabis, such as skunk and sensimilla, can literally send people mad. The recent case of Alfie...

Boy with rare form of epilepsy denied cannabis oil treatment

Government refuses to issue licence for medication that reduces six-year-old’s seizures The government has refused to issue a licence for a six-year-old boy with a rare form of epilepsy to be treated with cannabis oil, despite evidence that it has eased his symptoms and support from MPs. Alfie Dingley, from Kenilworth, Warwickshire, can suffer up to 30 seizures a day. His mother said they had decreased dramatically in number and severity while he was in the Netherlands being treated with a prescribed, cannabis-based medication.

Super-strain of cannabis selling in Birmingham for three times price of gold

Dealers are selling luxury cannabis strains with names like ‘Stardog’ and ‘Gelato’ for nearly three times the price of gold. The astronomical rise in value for ‘connoisseur’ weeds has seen some exotic brands being sold for up to 2000 an ounce. It means the price of some hybrid strains of weed now easily outstrips the cost of an ounce of 21 carat gold at just 700. The lucrative trade has been driven by the legalisation of cannabis in some parts of the USA like California and Colorado. The change in law there has spawned a number of cannabis-producing brands whose “artisanal”...

Could the Netherlands become the first EU country to legalize cannabis?

Unlike in parts of the U.S. – where a handful of states have legalized cannabis – no EU country has. And in Amsterdam, it’s simply just “tolerated.” But what if cannabis was more than just simply decriminalized there? CGTN’s Mariam Zaidi reports from Amsterdam. The Netherlands’ capital Amsterdam is a city well known for its idyllic canals, bicycles and of course its hash cafes. At almost every corner of the city you can find one of Amsterdam’s famous coffee shops, from the more classic to the new. But these shops operate within a grey area of the law. They...
