Cannabis laws in the UK

Despite becoming more and more accepted in England and through the world, cannabis remains illegal in the UK. If you are caught cultivating, selling or even possessing marijuana, you might end up in trouble. Theoretically, you could even go to prison for up to five years for possessing cannabis. In reality, however, if you are caught with a couple of grams on you, that are meant for personal use and not for sale, you should be able to walk away with just a warning. The police do keep a record of the warnings, so any future cannabis-related crimes will be treated more seriously. Overall it is best to remain discrete with your cannabis use and to only smoke at home if that is possible.
