BODY SHOP FOUNDER and chief executive Anita Roddick emerged from a recent stunt for her new range of skincare products branded 'Hemp' distributing samples of a plant not dissimilarly fragrant but definitely disapproved of by Jack Straw.. Go on, guess what the lady was dishing-out as a promotional ploy? Right first time! Although selling or giving away cannabis in seed form is not illegal, in the Alice-in-Wonderland world of British jurisprudence, growing it is a criminal offence. Anita was unrepentant: 'I wouldn't want you to break the law by growing these. I just want you to have fun', she told the assembled hacks at the press launch. A high old time was had by none!
