How Weed Laws Are Failing the UK

15531 ratings | 1561575 views
High Society is a new VICE documentary series about drugs in the UK. Weed is the UK’s favourite illegal drug. An estimated half a million people use it for medicinal purposes, and many more just to get high. But while countries around the world move to decriminalise or even fully legalise smoking and growing weed – and in the face of British police de-prioritising the policing of cannabis – the UK’s government refuses to budge. When over 200,000 people signed a petition last year calling on Westminster to make the production, sale and use of weed legal, the government responded with a flat-out no. In this episode of High Society we explore how that approach to the issue shapes the UK’s weed culture, meeting growers, medical users, politicians and a couple of thieves in Birmingham who have come up with a novel way to make money off the country’s cannabis trade.

I’m tired of This garbage about cannabis psychosis I don’t want to hear anymore. Cannabis has never been shown to cause psychosis and thc only temporarily makes it worst a balanced strain or one with higher cbd to thc ratio can still make you feel nice and also be used to treat psychosis learn who you are and then learn which plant you need it remains illegal then you don’t know what you get
Cb1Active (5 days ago)
mashbury no it has never caused!! If you have genetics that show psychosis then large amounts of thc in a in a ratio higher than 10 to 1 cbd most definitely makes it worst while under influence that is. So the confusion that it can cause it comes from the fact thc makes it momentarily worst the at the same time the plant in different cannabinoid ratio and correct terpenoids for the patient is a legit treatment for psychosis but remain illegal nobody will have access to the right plant profile for the right brain chemistry
mashbury (5 days ago)
To say cannabis has never been shown to cause psychosis is wrong. It's only caused by smoking extreme amounts or extremely high THC % but it's possible.

I'm Canadian, and legalization over here has been a bit of a mess due to the governments over regulation but it's way better than having it be illegal

+Evan It's based on very good peer reviewed science and I've seen it first hand, people want weed legalised but won't talk about the possible risks/act like they don't exist, you don't deserve to have it legalised
Evan (6 days ago)
+1 2 Documented but not evidenced. If it were real the prevalence of psychosis would have risen with use during the spike in the 80s and 90s. It didn't. It's all speculation, and not based on good science.

I look at this as I feel the effects of my legally purchased edible kick in and then I remember why we seceded from the British and unlike many of the other former subjects we told your Commonwealth to fuck off. Your people and culture are great but goddammit but goddammit some of the shit you do makes me think American Individualism ain't that bad sometimes. Even our commies are usually the anarchist kind rather than the Stalinist kind.

such crap. Cannabis is just like cigarettes, it damages lungs, whatever it does for a few disease sufferers, we can do better by fixing diets, promoting exercice, and developing real drugs that solve issues without side effects like smoke, tar, and the like.
Evan (6 days ago)
Well, smart arse, it's not "just like cigarettes". Cigarettes have very few benefits, cannabis has plenty that are well documented already. It doesn't have to be smoked and I don't think you're going to relieve pain from MS with a jog and a salad. Nor will you reduce a Parkinson's suffer's shakes, as CBD does for my grandmother. Cannabis has many active compounds and our bodies are built with receptors for them. Do you even know what a receptor is? Out of interest, are you against medical opium? How about medical Ketamin? Barbiturates? Many essential medicines can also be drugs of abuse. We're only just scratching the surface of what these things can do for our bodies and minds because of boring twats like you that think they know it all without having read a medical book in their lives. Shut yer face until you know something worth sharing.

Iv got schizophrenia and weed is the only thing that stops me hearing voices.
StereoSoundAgent (2 months ago)
How come only Brits get "cannabis psychosis", are you all predisposed to be schizo in your DNA or something? It's a tiny island, that wouldn't surprise me if it were the case. That's my hypothesis. In America, and likely the rest of the world, the only way you get "cannabis psychosis" is if your schizophrenic. Which means you were born fucked. Sorry.
Strictly Foreigns (6 days ago)
Because there's 3 different types of weed in England , flavours ( the good shit) , skunk and Jamaican / South American , skunk is basically super strong weed that fucks you up after a few years of smoking it .

Weed Psychosis???? WTF is that now again... Christ, if you go psycho from a lil bit of strong spiff it's more likely that you already have psychotic tendencies as apposed to the weed having created it out of the blue. Human kind is - for the most part - fucked in the head anyway, don't come here and want to blame crap like that on ganja, stupid fucking indoctrinated idiots. Can people really not rationalize their own sensible conclusions anymore?
