Illegalization Of Cannabis In The UK

In 1928, an Egyptian delegate at the International Drug Conference in Geneva convinced participates that cannabis was just as dangerous and harmful as opium. This resulted in UK officials to deem it illegal for use.  However, a Home Office investigation looked into cannabisí effects and, according to the Wotton Report, thereís no credible evidence that using cannabis leads to aggressive or anti-social behavior and violent crimes. It also stated that normal people who use it donít become dependent on it.

Although 50 years of past since that time, cannabis is still illegal in the UK in recreational form. However, more and more people are interested in hemp-infused and CBD oil products.
