The Early 2000s – The downgrading of Cannabis
In the early 2000s, there was a temporary change in the UK Government’s stance on cannabis, largely in response to changing public perception towards the drug at the time.

In January 2004, cannabis was downgraded to a class C drug across the country.

In what countries is cannabis use legal?

Although it is a matter of debate as to the extent with which cannabis use leads to later hard drug abuse, drug dealers are said to rarely discriminate between the varieties of drug, and many fear that the decriminalisation of cannabis will prop up hard drug dealing and associated organised crime.

By contrast, in Durham, the police do not target recreational cannabis users, and in the West Midlands, the police divert those caught with small amount of cannabis away from the criminal justice system and into awareness courses, sometimes described as being similar to those in place for speeding offences.

The history of UK cannabis law

The government accepted 20 of the ACMD reports 21 recommendations, but rejected recommendation 3, that “Cannabis should remain a class C drug”.

The government said it would be possible to buy seeds in shops, to import them or buy them online.

Luxembourg will join Canada, Uruguay and 11 US states in flouting a UN convention on the control of narcotic drugs, which commits signatories to limit “exclusively for medical and scientific purposes the production, manufacture, export, import distribution, trade, employment and possession of drugs” including cannabis.

There is also the intention to allow for the domestic production of seeds for commercial purposes but plans for both a national production chain and state-regulated distribution have been delayed by the Covid pandemic.
