Cannabis seeds are not illegal under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, although the unauthorised cultivation of cannabis seeds and any subsequent supply and possession of cannabis is unlawful. As I stated in the House on 3 April 2008, the availability of cannabis seeds on the internet is a concern. This matter is kept under regular review, as is any issue associated with the unlawful production of illegal drugs.
