UK authorities are closing a cannabis market that was allowed to flourish for several years.
The market was initially established by the UK government in 2015 to allow for cannabis to be grown and sold in a legal way, but the market was shut down after it was discovered that it was selling a product labelled as cannabis oil.
The UK government has now said it will ban all cannabis products from being sold in shops and bars.
However, cannabis oil products remain available, and it is not yet clear how many shops and establishments will be closed.
In a statement, the Home Office said: “The Home Office takes all allegations of potential risks to public health very seriously and has taken this action to safeguard the health and safety of UK consumers.”
The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, said:”I’m absolutely determined to tackle the threat of cannabis use and the misuse of these products.
I want to make sure that there is nothing untoward happening in our communities and that we’re doing everything possible to ensure the safety of people in the UK and around the world.”
The British Home Office is also cracking down on cannabis growing operations.
Last week, the government announced it was banning the growing of cannabis in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
