UK: Cannabis now three times stronger



---
The strongest type of cannabis - known as Skunk - now dominates the UK
market, according to new Home Office research.

Skunk now accounts for between 70% and 80% of samples seized by police,
compared with 15% six years ago. It is three times stronger than other
types.

Senior police officers are urging the government to reclassify cannabis
as a Class B drug.

The police are among several bodies giving evidence to the Advisory
Council on the Misuse of Drugs.

The Association of Chief Police Officers said reclassification would end
confusion over the status of cannabis.

"We do support a re-classification back to B, and there's three reasons
for that", Assistant Chief Constable Simon Byrne told BBC News.

Cannabis farms

"Firstly, we are worried about the rise in the number of cannabis farms
we're discovering, which is frankly fuelling a more home-grown market in
the more potent type of cannabis.

"That then links in to... our professional concerns about the potency of
some of that cannabis, and the effect on some people's mental health."

"And thirdly... I think there's confusion on the streets about whether
this drug is legal or not, and that's causing problems for officers who
are trying to enforce the law."

Tougher penalties

Police said the reclassification would help them target organised crime
gangs who are profiting from the booming trade in herbal cannabis
cultivated in the UK.

The reclassification would be accompanied by stiffer penalties,
something that Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jacqui
Smith are believed to support.

But David Blunkett, who downgraded the drug when he was home secretary,
said a reversal of his decision would create confusion.

Speaking at the weekend, he said: "Rather than affecting practice on the
ground, classifying cannabis back to class B now would simply cause
confusion."

And the mental health charity Rethink said cannabis use could be reduced
without reclassification, if warnings about the risks were placed on
packs of cigarette papers, which are used to roll joints.

Debra Bell, of the Talking About Cannabis Parental Action Group, said:
"Skunk cannabis is one of the evils of our time.

"I'm not talking about it just being a gateway drug. It is dangerous in
itself."

Skunk is a specific type of cannabis and is so-called because it has a
very strong smell, but these days it has become the generic term for
stronger forms of the drug.

It is regarded as stronger because it contains much higher levels of the
active ingredient in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

It also contains much lower levels of cannabidiol (CBD), which is an
anti-psychotic substance that can moderate the effect of THC on the
mental health of users.

Opinion poll

A survey for the Advisory Council, by Ipsos/Mori of 1,000 people in
England, Wales and Scotland over the age of 16 suggests that most people
believe cannabis should be moved into a category reserved for more
dangerous drugs.

Of those polled, 32% said cannabis should be moved into Class A -
alongside heroin, cocaine and ecstasy; 26% said it should be in Class B
and 18% said it should be class C - its currentl category. Eleven per
cent said it should be legalised.

But the poll indicates that less than half know that cannabis is
currently in class C, and less than a quarter want tougher penalties
than those already in force for cannabis possession - the maximum prison
term is currently two years.

Schizophrenia risk

The mental health charity, Sane, is also giving evidence to the review.
Its chief executive, Marjorie Wallace, said there was a significant risk
for people who smoke the drug who are under 15 years old.

She said: "Their chances of developing a later illness like
schizophrenia can be between two and four times higher - that means
there may be about 1,500 people who are developing schizophrenia who,
without taking cannabis, might not otherwise have had this long sentence
of mental illness."

TYPES OF CANNABIS

Herbal, also known as "grass" or "weed", stronger varieties now dominate
the market

Skunk contains three times as much of the active ingredient, THC
Resin, also known as hash, was formerly the most common form of the
drug, sold in blocks and crumbled

But the charity Drugscope said it saw no good reason for reclassifying
cannabis, so soon after the government decided to make it Class C four
years ago.

Harry Shapiro, of Drugscope, told BBC News: "In 2004 it was predicted
that there would be a huge increase in the amount of cannabis use as a
result of the fact that it was downgraded from a Class B to a C.

"Not only has that not happened, but the government figures suggest
that, actually, cannabis use has been falling since then."

The Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, has said she will maintain an open
mind on the subject of re-classification until the Advisory Council on
the Misuse of Drugs presents its recommendations.
