That was part of a warning on Tuesday from Toshiro Muto, the chief executive of the Tokyo Olympics.

Cannabis has been legalized in some parts of the world, but Muto reminded potential visitors to the games that the substance is against the law in Japan.

Muto said at a news conference that at least one member of the executive board brought up the issue at a meeting.

Millions use cannabis, but figures for how many become dependent aren’t reliable

Cannabis has an image of being a relatively harmless drug. But all drugs carry a degree of risk, and cannabis is no exception. One of those risks is dependence, which many people assume is only something that happens to those who use “hard drugs”, such as crack or heroin. In fact, the estimated risk of dependence on cannabis is about one in ten. This risk may seem relatively low, but given that there are an estimated 200m cannabis users across the globe, the potential number of people who are dependent on the drug is around 20m – roughly, the population of Romania. It’s worth exploring how this figure of one in ten is constructed.

You’ll never guess which country smokes the most weed

If you had to guess which country consumed the most cannabis in the world, you’d surely start with places where the plant is at least legalized. Uruguay, for instance, legalized cannabis in 2013. Another choice might be Canada, which passed adult-use marijuana legislation in 2018. Heck, you could even pick countries where the drug is partially legalized, like the United States or Netherlands.

Are CBD cannabis flowers legal in the European Union?

Every European who actively observed the cannabis industry over the past few years most probably stumbled across cannabis buds or flowers that were claimed to be legal in the whole European Union. Said products are often presented as CBD hemp flowers and are available in many different strains and tastes.

Simultaneously, hemp stores across Europe are being raided and occasionally even shut down by the local police for selling illegal hemp products. In Munich, Germany, the police recently raided 14 cannabidiol and hemp shops on the same day. So one might rightfully ask: are CBD hemp flowers actually legal in the EU?
