Legalising Pot in the U.K | United Kingdom Marijuana Legalisation

When it comes to international trade, the U.K. takes a backseat to no one. Yet, one high-demand import remains prohibited in the British Isles, even as it’s gaining wider acceptance both recreationally and medicinally in some of our former colonies. So, what are the arguments for the legalisation of pot in the United Kingdom? Is there any hope?

Will marijuana ever be legal in the U.K? With many countries around the world legalising pot for recreational and medical use, when will the United Kingdom loosen its restrictions?

Who Thought it Was a Good Idea to Make Pot Illegal and When?

As you might have guessed, cannabis hasn’t always been illegal in Great Britain. In fact,U.K. government responded to a petition for the legalisation of marijuana by saying, “There are no plans to legalise cannabis as it would not address the harm to individuals and communities.”

In other words, don’t hold your breath—at least, not for more than a few seconds, there is still a glimmer of hope!
