ABSTRACT

Since the beginning of the 1990s, France has been faced with a new problem of drug abuse. More and more people are growing Dutch cannabis, commonly called "nederwiet". Grown mostly indoors, its culture requires very specific and sophisticated techniques and materials. The Dutch have produced a cannabis with a very high percentage of tetrahydrocannabinol. We have conducted a morphological and chemical study of one of the known varieties of nederwiet, "super-skunk". Using gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry we have identified the cannabinoid components. The question of the Dutch regulations on drug abuse and the discussion on legalizing cannabis use in France raises many unanswered questions of great importance.
