15% THC as a maximum?
Should there be a ban on the level of THC within cannabis? Different counties are dealing with this question such as Uruguay, and recently the Dutch government discussed the topic.
In Uruguay, the only country where cannabis is legal, the maximum level is set at 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 labeled as a hard drug.
Experts slam the idea. One of them is Dr. Robert Verpoorte, a highly renowned international scientist, previously head of the Division of Pharmacognosy of the Leiden University in The Netherlands.
