Is it OK to bring home hash brownies and space cakes?

I currenty live in London and will be going to Amsterdam in a few days. Is it legal to bring back pastries, such as hash brownies and space cakes? Or are they considered as illegal substances, rather than pastries?

Cannabis is in the list of illegal substances in the UK. https:/…penalties-drug-possession-dealing

I don't think they (or the drugs dogs) care which shape or form it comes in. I've read about people taking the risk and packing it in such ways as to conceal the smell. But you might as well buy (or bake) it in the UK with the same risk.

I once was on a bus from Holland to London and we all got checked and had to open all our luggage.. When asking why, it was explained that it is the favourite route for drugs smugglers and they will prosecute any offenders .

In my town 16 football fans got into hospital after eating hash brownies in the football stadium.

@BlueMorpho, yes, there are Eurolines buses and perhaps others too. They go on the ferry for part of the way. Take a long time but can be very cheap.

Think it would make you luggage smell awful, lol; and yes, as other have said, cannabis in any form is illegal to bring into the uk. Enjoy your brownies in Amsterdam, and take care not to ingest too much.

I have been watching this thread for almost a week now and I'm still shaking my head that someone would ask the question seriously. :-))
