Can I advertise clothing with a message of marijuana?

Good Afternoon, my name is ***** ***** I am a Solicitor. 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). Please see the guidance for UK advertising below:

Regulations that affect advertising

Advertising to consumers

The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations mean you cannot mislead or harass consumers by, for example:

including false or deceptive messages

leaving out important information

using aggressive sales techniques
