"Equally, it could be that people who develop psychosis are more likely to use drugs such as skunk as a way of coping with the early-stage psychotic symptoms they have. The real problem, clinically, is how does a doctor reach the decision about whether a diagnosis of cannabis-induced psychosis should be given? How recently should you have used cannabis, and for how long? It's not an exact science – we don't have the same level of sophisticated tests that we use to diagnose something like diabetes." It's complicated, but as Professors Charles Ksir and Carl Hart write in relation to their critical review on the subject, "We are concerned that a misunderstanding of the relation between cannabis use and psychotic behaviour leads to an oversimplification of the complex developmental nature of substance use and mental disorders." In other words: simplifying the issue in order to push policy or write a scary headline probably doesn't do justice to those suffering.
Today – unless you're weed nerd – almost all cannabis in the UK is considered skunk, with average THC levels of between 10 to 20 percent. Furthermore, the UK growing industry continues to thrive, evolving in new ways every year to outwit police. In the past, growers would use every inch of a house; now, they frequently leave the front room untouched, with a television on inside, to avoid suspicion. There have also been raids that show growers are branching out beyond residential buildings: an old Barclays bank in Grimsby, an abandoned GP surgery in Harlow, or – in February – a disused nuclear bunker in Wiltshire. Recent reports identify that over 60 percent of those involved in the industry are now white British – but guess who still tends to the plants? To this day there has never been a single successful prosecution of anyone on counts of trafficking, and many ghosts occupy UK prisons, despite having been forced into their work. "One of the issues that's happening here is people copying the Vietnamese," says Simon Harding. "White British gangs, black, Russians and Albanians. I haven't seen evidence of a partnership, but because these boys are known and good at what they do, even the others will use Vietnamese growers because of their expertise." Of course, not everyone's recruiting from the Vietnamese gangs.
In Birmingham, for example, a trend has emerged that's come to be known as "groppers", or "granny growers", which is exactly what it sounds like. Using hydroponic and high intensity lighting equipment, a number of elderly women – capitalising on the fact that police are unlikely to suspect them of any criminal activity – have set up grow-ops in their homes and the spare rooms in their friends' council houses, and claiming a large share of the local cannabis market in the process. Away from these criminal enterprises, and on a much smaller scale, home growers have been able to make use of similar cultivation technology – sometimes to grow weed for their own use, and sometimes to grow plants that can be turned into medicines for people who need them, but aren't able to access them legally. The UK Cannabis Social Clubs (UKCSC) – a network of local groups across the country which campaign for cannabis legalisation – have started selling a kit containing tags that growers can attach to up to nine plants in one grow location, which are supposed to inform police that your operation doesn't have criminal intentions. The money you pay for the kit goes into a pot that's there to fund your legal defence if your grow-op does get raided by police. Mind you, that pot hasn't had to be dipped into yet – potentially because raiding personal growing operations is no longer a police priority, with Sara Thornton – Chair of the National Police Chiefs Council – saying that cops are more likely to "record" a tip-off about a grow-op, rather than investigate it. However, while police across the UK are starting to deprioritise the policing of cannabis – and despite countries around the world relaxing their attitudes to medical marijuana – the law in the UK remains stubbornly in place, with the government saying in July that it has "no intention" of making cannabis legal. Not that the legality of the plant matters all that much, of course: cannabis remains the most commonly used drug in the UK, with around 2.1 million people using it in the last year. The vast majority of this number are likely to have smoked, eaten or vaped one of the many, many strains that falls under the wider "skunk" umbrella. Your mum might have warned you about it, the Daily Mail might have tried to scare you out of using it, and it's possible the 20-bag you bought last night was produced under highly exploitative circumstances – but one thing's for sure: "skunk" isn't going anywhere.
