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?

yes..what soupdragon said.

captainmummy Fri 06-Sep-13 11:25:49

Yes I would, because selling makes him a drug-dealer, and he can and will go to prison for it.

I hate drugs. Anyone with kids does, surely. It's them we should be thinking off, not someone who is making money at it.

Use it yourself ( I have no problem with people who want to fry their brains) but selling it to others, no.

Yes, having seen the effect it can have, I probably would. If it was just for their own use, I'd leave them to it.

LadyKatherine Fri 06-Sep-13 11:26:45

Absolutely would yes. And without remorse too.

fluffyraggies Fri 06-Sep-13 11:26:46

I'm listening ... it's a genuine situation.

JerseySpud Fri 06-Sep-13 11:27:16

Yes

The minute we stop caring about the community is the minute the human race is fucked.

FreudiansSlipper Fri 06-Sep-13 11:27:24

No

They are dealing drugs yes i would report.

Cuddlydragon Fri 06-Sep-13 11:28:00

Yes. Simply to stop them selling to other people's kids.

Not unless they were smoking the putrid stuff upwind from me.

CatAmongThePigeons Fri 06-Sep-13 11:28:13

Yes, I would report without a moments hesitation.

But it's the people who use it themselves who keep these dealers in business. IMO they are all as bad as each other and ruining thier lives/putting thier lives at risk perfectly well on their own without someone reporting them when/if its not directly affecting them.

If it was directly affecting me, they were dealing to someone I loved for example, yes I would report them. But if it was just because I knew they were (because small towns know everything!) then I have more important things to worry about.

No

animaniac Fri 06-Sep-13 11:31:10

Yes I would report it - they're a drug dealer. They could be selling it to your kids next.

shrinkingnora Fri 06-Sep-13 11:31:13

Yes.

SixPackWellies Fri 06-Sep-13 11:31:17

Yes

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Fri 06-Sep-13 11:31:23

Yes

LimitedEditionLady Fri 06-Sep-13 11:32:51

Its all very well saying what youd do in an ideal world but in real life with real people its not as sinple as that.Real life,real people.To know they sell you gotta be pretty close to them.

FreudiansSlipper Fri 06-Sep-13 11:33:53

I have a child I can not say I hate drugs

I do not like the effect drugs have on communities but we need to change our attitude drugs are around they are not going away we have to teach responsibility not scare tactics as they do not work. I expect ds will dabble in taking drugs at some point I would be foolish to think otherwise

captainmummy Fri 06-Sep-13 11:35:53

You may feel differently Freud when he is outside the local school selling packages to your child. It happens here.

Limited I can honestly say I'd report, no matter how close.

mum23girlys Fri 06-Sep-13 11:36:44

Yes I would

WafflyVersatile Fri 06-Sep-13 11:37:57

No I wouldn't.

Parietal Fri 06-Sep-13 11:38:15

No, let it go

(I support legalisation anyway)

burberryqueen Fri 06-Sep-13 11:38:37
