A small town in Estonia recently announced they would be placing a hemp leaf on their flag, a traditional crop for the region. And while it may be tempting to think of this as simply local flavor, this decision says a lot about changing attitudes towards cannabis in Europe. Kanepi, a region and a town in the south eastern part of Estonia is traditionally known for its production of hemp. Now a municipality, Kanepi takes its name from the plant locals have harvested for generations. ‘Kanep’ means cannabis in the local lingo.
