A Dutch company has invented the world's first electronic joint.

Dutch manufacturers E-Njoint BV claim the e-spliff is harmless as it contains no tobacco, nicotine or Tetrahydrocannabinol.

With the typical conical shape of a real joint, the cigarette has a chrome plated tip where a cannabis leaf lights up with every puff.

E-Njoint say the cigarette is 100% legal in Holland - home of Amsterdam's famed cannabis cafes - however their legality varies across the continent due to different laws.

Menno Contant, CEO of E-Njoint, said: 'Holland is well known in the world for its tolerant and liberal attitude toward soft drugs and the introduction of this new product clearly makes a statement.

'As long as you don't bother or disturb other people and stay within the legal boundaries, all is well.

'Everyone should feel fine, because what we are doing is no crime.’
