This Is Lancashire: 'Cannabis' farm found in Blackburn 'Cannabis' farm found in Blackburn

A SUSPECTED cannabis farm was discovered by police in Blackburn over the weekend.

Officers raided a property in Shear Brow yesterday morning after receiving a report of cannabis being grown.

Inspector Bob Eaton said: “We have investigated reports of a cannabis factory. There has been a raid and a 19-year-old male has been arrested.

“Our intelligence officers are now dealing with the incident.”

It is the second raid carried out in the last two weeks. Police also seized cannabis from a property in Stevenson Street East in Accrington last Monday, after also executing a warrant.

Why are we, the British taxpayers, still paying for this stupid, unwinnable war against cannabis? Our government should follow the examples of Colorado and Washington State, and most recently Uruguay, and implement a policy of legal regulation in regards to cannabis. Under a legal scheme, thousands of taxable jobs would be created, helping to give our economy a massive boost. It is time to stop arresting adults for consuming a product safer than both alcohol and tobacco.

What difference does it make if the guy was Asian or not, it's irrelevant. If you want to play the blame game (or in your case Benpupdog, try to stir up a racial hatred) have a read of the article 'Nelson drug addict stole £2,500 ring from ex-boyfriend's mother'.

Well done to the police for clamping down on this !!

p.s. There is no mention of the person's ethnicity, so let’s not ASSUME anything...

Like they don't already! There is a big difference between cost and value as with everything, at least the profits would be regulated, taxable and hopefully better spent on age restriction and awareness, like alcohol, which is a lot more destructive than cannabis.

Firstly, easily does not mean free! It means readily available. The production price must be lower than the value or there would not be so many people willing to risk their future and freedom to cultivate it, thus making it so readily available. Secondly, If it was legalised, the production rates would fall and the profit would be received by regulated companies/ producers, instead of a chain of greedy criminals, where it would be liable for taxation. If anything the price would remain more stable than it has since reclassification. With an underestimated 6 million cannabis users in the UK, that's a fair profit. I agree some people will still believe having a couple of plants in the garden shed is worth the risk, but the criminal wholesale operation itself would be undermined. More importantly it would prevent cases like this where a teenager is offered a place to live in return for any chance of a future he might have had.

Criminals are making a profit by stealing electricity, using slave labour, and not paying tax and all the other costs in running a legitimate business including VAT.
The Pro pot lobby keep reminding me how easy it is to grow their own or know where they can get their illegal supply which of course will be tax free (which of course will undermine legalisation), it’s all very well Richard Branson and the Beckley foundation saying this would be a good idea hidden within their large estates and large fortunes but they are not an accurate representation of your average stoner.

BTW cannabis users this country is around 2-3 million

Just as a matter of interest are you trying to fill the void left by the CLEAR media team?
They used to copy and paste a lot on many cannabis stories, they are much quieter now (thankfully)

This is one of the main reasons that Asians want to ban alcohol. It diverts cash from cannabis sales.
