Quick poll:

A person you know, not family, is growing, using and selling weed (in high enough quantities to turn a tidy profit) year round.

Would you report them to the police?

For selling yes I would. I wouldn't report for someone personal using if they didn't have kids living at home with them.

If he were part of gang culture/ criminal culture then I would - it's that part of thr illegality of the drug that I don't like - but I am not against weed - I think alcohol is worse than cannabis and it's the illegality of it that makes it part if a dark world.

Like alcohol there are imacts on health of varying degrees and that risk is down to the consumer who does so these days knowing those risks.

If your friend is just growing it himself and selling to adult individuals (ie not part of a drug ring or however you define a criminal drug network) then I would probably not report it.

I wouldn't report them to the police, because I don't believe cannabis use to be a major social evil, and I don't think dealing in it makes you a bad person.

Ps I always thought that weed was a gateway drug more because it put he user in touch with dealers /criminals and so access to harder drugs - any drug even alcohol could lower a persons inhibitions and perception so much that they might try drugs if offered. One example is non smokers that smoke socially when drinking. And someone who smokes weed is more likely to drink and smoke and be (due to it's illegality) in more permissive circles if friends - but again if legalised would be less of an issue.

project grin its true though! I have done a tiny bit of work with youths in my club about drugs/alcahol . Nearly all of the kids that said they had used had said they had been drinking first. Also weeded being laced with more addictive substances is on the rise and the strength of the THC is being manipulated. So it's not the same as it was back in the day but that's what happens when dick heads set up a grow.

I hate pissheads as much as pot heads. Both used in moderation is fine, but the majority will over indulge and that's when the shit starts .. On both issues.

No one should be producing any thing to be consumed with out being regulated alcahol/drugs. Fake alcahol is just as bad!!
