I was watching the news last night and the UK has some pretty weird pot laws. Some of these laws make zero sense to me… I’m also having trouble understanding why there are any laws completely banning weed at all when anyone can go to the local pub and order a pint!
So, what are the laws in the UK? Well, you are not allowed to buy or sell weed. You are not allowed to grow weed. You can’t smoke weed either. You can, however, buy and sell as many seeds as you want. Heck, you can open up a gigantic see selling store if that’s what you feel like doing. To me, this seems a little silly. I mean if the only purpose for these seeds is to grow pot, and pot is illegal, why allow the seeds to be openly bought and sold. Makes you wonder why the government even bothers doesn’t it?
For those of you who are interested in taking part in the only legal aspect of weed… Getting yourself some seeds is as simple as Googling what you want. For example since seeds are legal here, just search for cannabis seeds UK or cannabis seeds for sale in the UK. You will find a ton of sites all selling a bunch of different types of pot, or at least their seeds.
Is growing pot illegal if you buy your own seeds? Yup, but at least you don’t have to worry about getting the supplies you need…
What will probably happen within a few years is that pot itself will become legal. There are just too many people who want this to happen. It is already starting in certain parts of the United States. There is so much evidence about the benefits of smoking pot and we are all starting to learn that most of the negative rumors are all completely wrong. The truth is that almost everyone has smoked at some point in their lives and they know it’s no big deal. As the younger generation starts to take control, the laws will slowly begin to ease up and you will be able to buy your weed at the local drug store.
There is actually a pretty powerful legalization movement that is getting bigger and stronger every day. Organisations like Clear, the UKCIA (UK Cannabis Internet Activists) and Legalise Cannabis Alliance (LCA). One of these groups is an actual political party. Those of you who are looking to make a difference or who want to stay informed when it comes to where we stand on changing the pot laws will probably want to follow the progress these groups are making.
So, as far as I’m concerned, it’s only a matter of time before weed is completely legalised.
