Hemp Vodka in the UK

A new alcoholic beverage that contains hemp seeds and vodka has gone on sale in the UK. Cannabis Vodka, produced by a company in the Czech Republic, is now available at a few locations in England, and over the Internet.
The drink is made by adding hemp seeds during the bottling process. Although the drink contains no marijuana or other psychoactive ingredients (aside from alcohol), some anti-drug groups complained. A municipal Drug Action Team co-ordinator claimed that “by selling this drink they are saying it is OK to take cannabis with alcohol… It shouldn’t be allowed.”
