Petition Legalise sale of raw hemp flowers and match THC limit of Switzerland.
THC psychoactive within 'street weed' has risen to dangerous levels. Unbalanced THC:CBD levels can cause mental health issues for the consumer. Relaxing Hemp Flower ('Cannabis Light') law gives a legal, non-psychoactive alternative whilst also creating a new UK industry from beneficial cannabinoids.
"Cannabis resin usually contains cannabidiol (CBD), a substance thought to protect against some of the dangerous effects of THC"
"...doctors think (...) high levels of THC, especially without CBD to counteract it, (...) to become addicted and develop mental health problems."
