15% THC as a maximum?

In Uruguay, the only country where cannabis is legal, the maximum level is set on 15% THC. Also, in the Netherlands the government is planning to implement this level for so called health reasons. All cannabis with a higher level of THC will be labelled as a hard drug.


Should there be a legal restriction on the level of THC in cannabis? Various counties, such as Uruguay, are dealing with this question, and recently the Dutch government discussed the topic.

Experts slam the idea. One of them is Professor Robert Verpoorte, an internationally highly renowned scientist, previously head of the Division of Pharmacognosy of Leiden University in The Netherlands.

People should be cautious with stronger products, but still no hard drug, just better medicine.

Like alcohol here in the U.S., there are different 'proofs' 40,60,70,80,100,151....
Grain Alcohol or Bacardi's 151 has a higher proof but is not necessarily considered a "hard" drug when comparing to it's counterparts. Yes, they have to have a warning label on the bottle but it's not a separate classification. Think it should apply here.

This is just a way for a government to get around the will of it's people. What are they going to do, require that every bud in the country be tested? No, they will use this crap as an excuse to stop people from doing what they want by removing access. Just another step in The Screw The People campaign of a repressive gov.

Just like Cheech and Chong says: "Anyone who don't think that marijuana should be re-legalized; well your all fucked!"

If they want to label it as being a certain strength, and that's it, that's cool. It would make it easier for me to compare and make sure I'm getting the most potent weed possible. Just like I look for the 100 proof vodka instead of that 80 proof shit.
