sending marijuana seeds to japan

There are signs that the police is gradually becoming aware that marijuana is not like hard drugs and that its users are not dangerous criminals. However, this process will only progress as police, lawmakers and the general public are educated about the facts. One possible outcome may be an informal system of tolerance where police turn a blind eye to cannabis violations as they tend to do with cash payouts out by pachinko gambling parlors or “delivery health” (call girl) services, which are both illegal but ignored.

Then, in the late 1960s, when the USA was fighting a deeply unpopular war in Vietnam, there was growing opposition to this war in Japan, which was and still is a major base for American involvement in Asia. Students and other members of the “counter culture” were found to be growing hemp and the until then forgotten law was suddenly applied to prosecute them. They couldn’t be arrested for their political views, as they would have been during the military dictatorship of the 1940s, but their use of a forbidden plant made it possible to target them anyway.

After Japan regained its sovereignity the new hemp law was widely ignored for about two decades as no one understood why it had been passed at all.

1. If a Party permits the cultivation of the cannabis plant for the production of cannabis or cannabis resin, it shall apply thereto the system of controls as provided in article 23 respecting the control of the opium poppy.

2. This Convention shall not apply to the cultivation of the cannabis plant exclusively for industrial purposes (fibre and seed) or horticultural purposes.

Prior to the Second World War, cannabis played a significant role in traditional Japanese medicine. It was used to treat conditions such as insomnia, and to offer pain relief. This all changed after the hemp law was introduced in 1948.

Some people have spoken out in favour of introducing a medicinal cannabis programme in Japan. A notable example is Masamitsu Yamamoto, who was caught in possession of cannabis in 2015. He claimed that he was using it as a last resort, to relieve the pain caused by his advanced liver cancer. He petitioned the government to legalise cannabis for medicinal purposes, but passed away during the trial, in 2016.

Hideo Nagayoshi, a representative of the Japan Medical Marijuana Association, supported Yamamoto during the trial. He commented that: “No other marijuana trials in Japan’s history had dug this deep into the validity of marijuana as a cancer treatment.”

Is CBD legal in Japan?

It’s illegal to use or possess cannabis in Japan. The Cannabis Control Act was introduced in 1948, when the country was occupied by the US after the Second World War, under the control of General MacArthur. It hasn’t been significantly changed since then.

However, this didn’t lead to the product being legalised for medicinal purposes in Japan. Indeed, in 2015, Otsuka Pharmaceuticals stated that its latest trials (regarding cannabis treatment for patients with advanced cancer) had been inconclusive.

The law specifically refers to both possession and use, and states that those caught with cannabis (for personal use) may receive a prison sentence of up to five years. Although hemp is regarded as a beneficial plant, the authorities take a less tolerant view of cannabis, and it’s not uncommon for people to be imprisoned simply for possessing a single joint.

When the Cannabis Control Act was being drafted, US officials initially wanted to ban both hemp and cannabis. The Japanese authorities managed to convince the US to issue permits for hemp production instead.
