Police are appealing for information after a number of cannabis plants and associated equipment were found in a garage in Hampshire.

Officers were investigating reports of a burglary, which was reported at about 6.45am yesterday, when they made the discovery.

About 50 plants were found inside the garage in Fleet Road, Fleet, which is rented out, along with cultivation equipment.

Inspector Olga Venner said: “We would like to hear from anyone who has noticed any suspicious activity near this garage or who has seen people coming and going.

“If you know anything, please get in contact. Any information given will be treated in strict confidence.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Phil Howe at Aldershot Police Station on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.

A 28-year-old man from Chertsey, Surrey, was arrested in connection with this incident and has been released on bail until January 16, pending further enquiries.

The police should postpone all investigations into violent crime or sexual assault and put all their resources into the investigation of this horrendous crime.

On 6th November 2012 Colorado and Washington state legalised cannabis for adults!

Are we so stupid in Britain that we cannot learn the lessons of history? If we prohibit something for which there is huge demand then the price rises and violent criminals become involved.

If we introduced a legally regulated system we would solve nearly all the problems around cannabis. Science proves how much safer it is than tobacco, alcohol, prescription medicines and all other recreational drugs. The evidence is that where legal regulation is introduced, consumption by children and all health and social harms are reduced.

Doctors would be able to prescribe one of the most effective medicines that has no serious side effects at all. At the moment the government has given GW Pharmaceuticals an illegal monopoly on cannabis so they make millions out of a medicine that you can grow in your greenhouse for virtually nothing.

Independent, expert research also indicates that a tax and regulate policy on cannabis would produce a net gain to the UK economy of up to £9.3 billion pa.

Our present policy on cannabis is irrational, irresponsible and dangerous. Surely, this inevitable and long overdue reform will now begin to roll out across the world?

“This man had no victims. GW Pharma sell cannabis in a bottle (Sativex - Nabiximols) worldwide. Their product is no different to what his chap was growing. They are not prosecuted, nor are they sent to prison for 3 years at a cost of approx £130,000, nor do they have victims. They have patients! This chap will probably lose his business and job and probably end up claiming benefits because he will have a criminal record. All for a bit of creative gardening, no different to big pharma. The only difference is he didn't have a licence.”
