This article is not aimed at the Dagga brigade but rather to hi-lite doings of our-users. The cannabis contradiction. Cannabis is illegal in the UK and according to the list of countries all 4 aspects are illegal: possess, grow, sell or distribution and Cannabis is a class B drug and without the correct licences for production and unlicensed trafficking. The penalties may be up to 14 years in the slammer and an unlimited fine or both. Bit tough eh?
According to the introduction to the cannabis articles on Wikipedia it is made known that the UK has everything except the ability to grow cannabis. Kak story!!!
When I read international news it is usually SKY NEWS and BBC news.
These papers have quite a wide range of articles relating to crime, international news and general subjects.
Cannabis does get its fair share of publicity: School boys of primary school age are selling Cannabis on the streets, caught by a copper, taken to mommy where he is crapped upon then down to the cop-shop where all and sundry lambast his for his errancy then released with a warning. The customers, most youthful are waiting for service which is quick in coming.
The cops raid a house in search of stolen property and find an indoor farm where hundreds of cannabis plants are happily growing. All these plants are now collected and marked then lugged to the cop-shop and the owner charged with possession and goes through the system and comes out unscathed. Now cannabis by the tonne is confiscated by the cops, not just a hierjy plant or a gram or two .but tonne. The contradiction here is that so much is imported and still the flow to the market is huge yet the cops can do very little about it.
IN THE UK very many politicians are on the stuff and proudly flaunt it to the public and their ministers. Imagine if JZ sat smoking his zoll in parliament .

CANNABIS WILL NOT BE LEGALISED, HOME OFFICE MINISTER SAYS.
CANNABIS IS MORE HARMFUL THAN EVER AND WILL NOT BE LEGALISED, A HOME OFFICE MINISTER SAID TODAY.
THE HOME OFFICE MINISTER SAID THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO PLANS TO LEGALISE ANY DRUG INCLUDING CANNABIS WHICH IS 6 TO 7 TIMES STRONGER THAN IT WAS A FEW YEARS AGO.
In one article in the news paper the cops were complaining about having to carry hundreds of pot plants containing weed, it can get up to more than 100/day. In fact their highest tally was about 1*000 in a month. When the articles in the UK papers are read one comes to the conclusion that it is hardly necessary to have any legalization because the stuff is all over the place: we think in terms of a cabbage patch while the English think in terms of rugby fields.
