The United Kingdom is a country with a long and vivid history and is well known for its’ Royal Family and famous pop stars. In 1971, cannabis was classified as an illegal substance and ever since it has been illegal.

Weed Laws in the United Kingdom:
The laws on cannabis in the United Kingdom vary, depending on the circumstances. Just like all other places where marijuana is illegal, the punishments related to the herb are based on whether you are caught in possession or supply and production.
The official laws state that if caught in possession, the punishment will results in up to 2 years in prison and an unlimited fine or both. However, if caught smoking for the first time, one can expect to receive a warning and to have his weed confiscated by the police. If caught twice, then a fine of GBP80 will be given. The third time is when one will be taken to custody.
If caught supplying or producing cannabis, you can expect to get a maximum of 14 years in prison or an unlimited fine, or bot, depending on the circumstances (quantities, behavior, etc.)
