UK Police Crack Down on Cannabis Farms

Posted by Ian Blyth on 25 September 2006

A news item today says that the police will be cracking down on cannabis farms. Apparently the amount if home grown cannabis has risen from 10% to 60%. How do they know this? Since it is illegal and not taxed how do they track that figure? If they know, then they have been allowing it to grow and not taken action. So why now? Otherwise they are just making up the figures.


If it is true then surely that is good for the economy. Less imports and more jobs.


The trouble with attacking the source and destroying the farms is that they do not reduce the demand they just reduce the supply which puts up the price and makes importing it more lucrative.
