On May 26th 2016 the controversial Psychoactive Substances Act comes into force in the United Kingdom. The legislation aims to ban any substance that is capable of producing a psychoactive effect, with a small list of exemptions such as alcohol, nicotine, caffeine and poppers. Also, churches are still allowed to use incense. The Act states:
For the purposes of this Act a substance produces a psychoactive effect in a person if, by stimulating or depressing the person’s central nervous system, it affects the person’s mental functioning or emotional state; and references to a substance’s psychoactive effects are to be read accordingly.
Unfortunately the legislation has some consequences for our customers in the United Kingdom. A number of products will no longer be available for purchase, at least until certain provisions are made to the Act. Many of our wonderful products can still be purchased: vaporizers and cannabis seeds for collection, for example. In the smartshop category you can still enjoy most of our aphrodisiacs, magic mushroom growing supplies, nootropics and a wide range of herbs.
