Cannabis: police seizures show drop in drug’s strength

This is for information really, but The Guardian are reporting that cannabis strength may be falling:

According to the figures the level of THC – the main psychoactive ingredient – in herbal cannabis was 12.7% in 2004, 13.5% in 2005 and 11.3% in 2006, before dropping to 9.5% in 2007, the year covered by the latest figures. Cannabis resin, a milder form, has decreased in strength from 3.4% to 2.6% between 2004 and 2007.

The FSS [Forensic Science Service] said the figures were not representative and were from too small a sample.
