Burntwood man charged after discovery of cannabis plants at farm

A man from Burntwood is among 11 people charged in connection with the discovery of cannabis plants at a farm in Lincolnshire.

The arrests were part of a five-month Operation Nemesis investigation and saw a number of properties across Staffordshire and the West Midlands raided in September.

As well as the man from Burntwood, men from Rugeley, Burton-on-Trent, Sutton Coldfield, Solihull, Chichester, West Bromwich, Toxteth and Granthan have now been charged with conspiring, in Staffordshire and elsewhere, to produce and supply cannabis.

They are all due to appear before magistrates in Cannock on November 18.

    The governments own chief scientist says Cannabis is less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco. Yet due to the money to be made because it is illegal our Police have to waste thousands of man hours and untold millions of pounds in criminalising cannabis users and producers. This is madness. Lets tax and regulate cannabis and use the much needed money saved and raised on building hospitals and schools.

    I say we should grow the stuff too. Our climates not ideal – but as these budding entrepreneurs have shown – there’s profits and jobs. More Jobs = Less Crime. Nuff said. Lets have a rave too.
