As long as cannabis remains in the black market, gang members and criminals will continue to make massive profits. The smartest policy our government could implement in regards to cannabis is one of legalisation and regulation. This would free up hundreds of prison spaces, create thousands of taxable jobs, and allow our police to focus on real crime, such as murder and assault.

The drug problem in St Helier rears it's head again- we residents have had enough, and it's good to see Police act to shut down these growers. Even if they do seem to just set up elsewhere within days, let's keep making their lives difficult.

Exactly. And should the property be council owned will they be evicted. We have laws and (not in this case) if they can't be dealt with by the police to stamp out the drug problem then we need more police. Oh,and well done Guardian for grassing up the neighbours, would'nt want to live on that street when they get bail.

Many people consume cannabis in order to relieve symptoms from conditions such as MS, PTSD, HIV/AIDS etc. So for these people, consuming cannabis is a must in order to be able to live life without being in constant pain. As for the recreational users: Why should our government have the right to tell an otherwise law abiding citizen that they are not allowed to consume a substance safer than alcohol and tobacco? The main reason cannabis is still illegal is because of lobbying done by the alcohol industry, and the pharmaceutical industry against cannabis. Not because of science or justice.

People shouldn't be worrying themselves about these sorts of drugs. The drugs themselves may be harmful for some people, but it's up to individuals if they wish to take what ever risks there may be. The negative side of all this is the criminality that goes along with it. Make it legal and the real problems disappear. It's so simple and logical it hurts to have to live in this ridiculous country. If people want something to worry about and focus their attention on it's the millions of anti-depressant drugs doctors dish out to everyone nowadays including children. That is truly awful and worrying. What could possibly be the incentive to have a large section of the population drugged up on happy pills. You anti-drug fools, your energies are misguided and just help to continue this nonsense.

I don't do drugs or smoke, but i'm not so closed minded as to wish to stop other people doing as they please. If someone wants to smoke a joint at home to relax then what the hell has it got to do with me or anyone else.

First of all I am little surprised, I was think you were just a pot bot (cut and paste and repeat) similar to the CLEAR media dudes.
I am sure there those who will swear blind that cannabis is the only thing that will work but generally we are talking about 100, 000 each MS and HIV and an unknown total of PTSD sufferers, the rest juts want to get stoned on a psychoactive substance and are quite happy to do so on the back of a few MS and HIV users. I couldn’t advocate alcohol horrid stuff so whilst it is legal it does not justify legalisation of another bad drug in cannabis
