Professor Green looks at both sides of the argument if we should legalise weed in the UK?
In his latest documentary with the BBC, Professor Green delves into the world of cannabis and weed legalisation in the UK. Should weed be legalised in the UK? You don’t just get a name like Professor Green from liking the colour as cannabis use to be part and parcel of everyday life for the London MC. As an ex weed dealer and smoker, cannabis has always had a strong connection to the UK grime and hip hop scene.
From previously looking at the ever growing homeless problem in the UK, dangerous dogs and suicide, Professor Green now turns his attention to the world of weed. A lot has changed in the last 10 years with regards to weed. Not only has it been legalised in the likes of California and other parts of the world, but the strains and strengths has also increased dramatically. The rise of the dark web has made it possible to buy weed over the internet and get it delivered to your door, and the amount of ‘home growers’ has increased ten fold.
The big question when it comes to weed legalisation is its affects on mental health having been linked to schizophrenia and paranoia. Long term use can severely frazzle the brain as you may say, not to mention its adverse affects on the body from inhalation. As professor Green highlights in this latest documentary there will always be pros and cons to the ‘legalise weed in the UK’ argument.
