Just over half a decade ago a handful of cannabis clubs started to campaign openly for the regulation and legal sale of cannabis in the UK. Today, there are over 80 clubs and growing, in all corners of the country, most of which hold events and activities. Some clubs have their own premises. Most clubs have around 100 – 150 members, in addition to thousands of affiliated individuals. Each club is its own separate legal entity, registered as a certified non-profit organisation, with all spare proceeds being used to develop the club and their local community. The UKCSC (the United Kingdom Cannabis Social Clubs National Committee) is the quasi-regulatory body for these clubs.
