Unfortunately, the United Kingdom is lagging behind more progressive European nations when it comes to cannabis legislation. The government categorises cannabis as a class B substance, meaning mere possession can lead to a maximum 5-year prison sentence, an unlimited fine, or both. Growing and supplying cannabis can lead to the more extreme punishments of up to 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine, or both.
