Although marijuana is a controlled substance in the UK there is no express laws against using its imagery or wording on clothing, however as an advertiser you will need to be careful that your logo/slogans do not contravene UK advertising laws or the intellectual property of other companies (IE using similar colours, wording, images as other brands).
