I've just noticed from the upstairs window they have a cannabis plant in their green house! It's bad enough that they are noisy, throw their fag butts in the road outside our house, keep us up till 3 am with all their mates getting pissed and are basically just chavs.

I want my ds to grow up in a nice environment (my house and garden is) and not to be surrounded by these fuck wits and their weed!

Then report them anonymously on Crimestoppers 0800 555 111

Report them then (to the rozzers).

Growing it is 'frowned' upon grin

yanbu, if you are sure it is a cannabis plant call the police (non emergency no).

purpleplump Tue 28-Jun-11 15:10:00

Its a class b substance isnt it? Phone police they can be arrested and charged with possession and (surely) intent to supply?
YANBU and I would have been straight on phone to police.

for one plant they won't get in trouble at all - it will be classified as 'personal use'

Also, until its dried out its not really smokeable - or sellable

I thought the OP was going to say she was pissed off because they weren't sharing any...

I'll get my coat.

We've got problem neighbours aswell. Do you own or rent and do they?

JanMorrow Tue 28-Jun-11 15:14:58

Careful, because they'll probably know who reported them (if you're the only one who can see their greenhouse). For the sake of one plant I think it's something that can be ignored.. it's the other antisocial behaviour you should concern yourself with. Have you had a word about noise with them?

Emandwilliam Tue 28-Jun-11 15:17:15

Insomnia11 your post made me laugh!! I'd happily shop them but I'm sure nothing will happen as it's only one plant!

Emandwilliam Tue 28-Jun-11 15:20:31

Sooty we own the house but they rent, they take absolutely no pride in their home, myself and my oh spend lots of time making our home as nice as possible and I'm fed up with them ruining it!

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 28-Jun-11 15:21:00

If you were going to call the police, complain about the noise, but they'll do nothing about a cannabis plant I wouldn't have thought.
You say you saw it in the greenhouse from your upstairs window.
How do you know it's cannabis?

kickingking Tue 28-Jun-11 15:25:28

Are you sure?

I thought somebody was growing cannabis once, but they weren't. blush

Bast Tue 28-Jun-11 15:27:40

If they were your ideal neighbours, I take it you wouldn't be considering reporting them?

SootySweepandSue Tue 28-Jun-11 15:27:49

You have my sympathies. I don't think there is a non self damaging way to deal with shot neighbours but I'm also watching this thread. Do they work?

porcamiseria Tue 28-Jun-11 15:27:57

noone likes a grass, ha ha . I do like grass tho

SootySweepandSue Tue 28-Jun-11 15:28:43

That would be shit neighbours

MadYoungCatLady Tue 28-Jun-11 15:28:43

Its only one plant? Wouldn't get my knickers in a twist over it. If they are that bad it may chill them out a bit!
Also, do you know the reason behind it being there? Is it possible it is being grown for medicinal purposes? I'd feel pretty terrible if I found out it was to help someone in pain and I had been responsible for it being taken away.

Bast Tue 28-Jun-11 15:29:51

I, personally, detest my neighbours nosing into my garden from their upstairs windows, however, I am sympathetic to their momentary escape from the mundanity of their lives. If I'm in a really generous mood, I flash them.

TrilllianAstra Tue 28-Jun-11 15:31:16

Are they going to share it?

Emandwilliam Tue 28-Jun-11 15:31:34

Lady I know what the plants look like , they are very distinctive and it's the only plant in the green house. The other day it disappeared as they had their nephew round but it's reappeared now. Suppose least they remove when they have kids round!

TickTockPillow Tue 28-Jun-11 15:33:02

Growing it is illegal as well not just smoking it / selling it. It is a criminal offence it its own right no matter what you intend to do with it.
I am not sure what the local police might do for one plant other than perhaps confiscate it.
I would be wary though - is their garden overlooked by other neighbours too or will an anonymous tip off be easily traced back to you?

Bast Tue 28-Jun-11 15:33:07

If you can't smell it, it's not there.

Or shit and not worth being there, hence, it probably isn't as not worth the risk.

SootySweepandSue Tue 28-Jun-11 15:34:22

Have any other neighbours seen it or share your sentiments?

I would be worried it was the start of a farm or something.

Bast Tue 28-Jun-11 15:35:55

Jesus. Do you know what a farm entails?

Could be a well maintained and nurtured mother plant. In which case she's special <purrrs>
