Cannabis can be grown in Britain.

Psilocybe semilanceata (Liberty cap, one of the magic mushrooms) can't
be stopped from growing in Britain.

LSD and MDMA (Ecstasy) can be synthesised in Britain.

Heroin and the other opiates have important medical applications.  (I
believe that---despite safeguards---at least some medical heroin makes
it into the hands of recreational users.)

Maybe it's not quite that simple...
