    Default TV advert for cannabis oil?

    Saw an advert on TV last night for cannabis oil, but it just called it three letters and not advertising as cannabis as such.

    Options are to drop oil into your mouth, or to vape - intriguingly Holland and Barrett are stockists.

    Has the world gone mad?

    Like everything else at Holland & Barrett, nothing.

    Oh wait, that's what it actually does. Not sure what it's supposed to do…

    As a natural component of cannabis consumed in the usual manner, it's blamed for causing the munchies. So probably not recommended if you're on a diet

    A family member who lives in California (where it is legal to do so), uses it under the instructions of her paediatrician to medicate her heavily autistic daughter.

    We seem to be a little behind the curve in the UK on this - possibly because of vested interests of big pharma and politicians or outdated opinions of cannabis as a drug only for recreational use.

    You can legally buy <1% THC cannabis products at most newsagents in Switzerland. I'm not sure why the UK politicians are so nervous.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Yep: https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...is-switzerland but you still can't take them over the border into Germany. however, I expect you'll probably get lung cancer before getting high smoking them.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Linky is blocked at clientco. Paediatric autism treatments seems a little niche for world cup half time advertising though - there must be another group that's being targeted here. I'm guessing it's dickheads.
