Smoking joints in vapotant, this is the goal of the marseillaise company Kanavape. The justice took hold of the subject in condemning last Monday the two creators of 18 months and 15 months in prison. The confinement is accompanied by a fine of 10,000 euros and 5000 euros in damages and interests to the Board of the College of pharmacists was constituted as a civil party.
However, the arguments of sale wanted to be reassuring for the consumer. Indeed, Sébastien Begueri and Antonin Cohen, the two convicts, had their first e-cigarettes to the hemp as being ” 100 % legal “.
This has prompted the justice to enter the folder, is the promotion of Kanavape. The franchise went so far as to brag about a benefit to health provided by the product without having obtained the slightest validation of the medical authorities of the country.
A legal blur around the cannabidiol
The dispute comes from the Ministry of Health. Agnès Buzyn has qualified the sale of the attached electronic legal as long as it does not exceed the threshold of 0.2 % of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The THC is the molecule psychostimulante contained in cannabis, acts on the brain as well as on the organs. Perception, motor skills, emotional and satiety are affected by its consumption.
So far, the entrepreneurs have defended themselves by explaining that they were selling the cannabidiol, another component of hemp. If it alters alertness, it causes no psychoactive effects and a certain vagueness surrounds this molecule which can be considered as a drug.
Everyone knows that it is a joint e-but the record is questionable legal. In the Face of this legal uncertainty, it is, therefore, the complaint of the Council of the College of pharmacy that leads to the conviction. Let’s not forget that Al Capone was never sentenced for his crimes, but only for tax evasion.
