Police prevent flat cannabis factory in Bradford

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Police prevent flat cannabis factory in Bradford Police prevent flat cannabis factory in Bradford

Police have prevented a group of men from converting an empty block of flats in Manningham, Bradford, into a cannabis factory.

After reports of a suspicious group at the flats, police found out the men had forced their way in by removing a metal grill and smashing a window.

Items found in the flat suggested they were in the process of setting up a cannabis factory.

A spokesman for the Manningham Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Please be aware of any empty or abandoned buildings near you and if you feel that people may be using them for whatever purpose, but without permission, report it.”

Had they got a load of equipment purchased from a hydroponics shop advertised by the T&A? I almost feel sorry for the police being made to look like idiots by the media, almost. The cowardice of MP when dealing with the cannabis issue has created this problem. All the illegal cannabis factories and street dealers could be a memory within months of a sensible legal approach. Commercial enterprise would stop the criminal element if they were to be allowed to sell their product at a price which would make the risks involved in going down the criminal route pointless. There should be no restrictions on users growing for their own use. By preventing home grow operations the police have created the ideal situation for organised crime to thrive. They have done such a good job of creating this "crime" that I find it hard to believe it wasn't done deliberately. I don't expect anything to change though as we have given over responsibility for ensuring our laws keep us safe to idiots and brown envelope yes men who even if they are aware of the situation on the ground would do nothing that may cause them to lose a vote or two or a kickback from a lobbying group.

As you might have guessed allowing "stoners" to grow their own, in my opinion would "not" be sensible as there would be no regulation

There is no regulation in homebrewing, would you remove people's right to produce their own alcohol? If commercial producers were to supply quality at a reasonable price then for most there would be no need to go down the homegrow route other that for their self satisfaction of being able to say they grew that. What right should anyone have to tell those with green fingers what plants they can and cannot grow?

Because it (weed) is an illegal substance, that is what gives the authorities the right to tell you what you can or cannot grow.

10/10 for stating the obvious Doc. Perhaps I would have more respect for your opinion if after taking nearly a month to think of a reply you had come up with something more along the lines of weed is illegal because...
How would you end that sentence Doc? Is it because it's harmful? Well not as much as alcohol or tobacco. Does it kill people? Well no it doesn't does it? Does it make people violent and aggressive? No that would be alcohol again. So basically it's illegal because we have been told it's illegal. If you are truely a Doctor then you've justified my mistrust of the medical profession as once again you prove a total lack of knowledge on this subject. Lets change the subject slightly. There are millions of people in this country on SSRI antidepressants. Do you know anything about them, such as the warnings of psychosis and suicidal thoughts plastered all over the inserts?. What about the possible irriversable erectile disfunction. Do you tell patients about that or do you just know what the sales rep tells you? There have been numerous suicides and murders related to SSRIs. Would you prescribe me them whilst advising me to stay away from my much safer and more effective weed because someones told you it's illegal and you've accepted that as you have no understanding of the plant or the issues surrounding it whatsoever other than what you've read in the daily mail? Speak to you again in another month if you can think up a reply by then but try harder next time.
