‘Skunk’ leads market
SO-CALLED “skunk” now almost completely dominates the cannabis market in the UK. Highpotency strains of the drug accounted for the vast majority of police seizures, researchers found.
The proportion of confiscations relating to skunk has risen from just over half in 2005 to 94% in 2016.
Researchers analysed almost a thousand police seizures of cannabis from the same areas that were sampled in 2005 and 2008.
