Thursday July 4 2013


Police arrest cannabis pair Police arrest cannabis pair


THE police have arrested two men on suspicion of producing cannabis with intent - after two special constables noticed the drug's distinctive smell.

Paul Carpenter and Iona Edwards were patrolling the Clough estate in Barnsley when they noticed the smell.

Coming from the block of flats, the pair knocked on every door until they tracked down where the smell was coming from.

After finding 700g of cannabis in a flat, two men were arrested, aged 32 and 52.

Sergeant Darren Taylor, from South Yorkshire Police’s anti-social behaviour team, said: "Not only did they initiate the arrests but they also led the interviews and seized the drugs."

Can they be special somewhere else and leave the harmless weed alone? How about they get the smack heads out of the town centre?

THE WONDER PLANT

Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime.

ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as Dupont and other petrochemical companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.

MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when the AMA supported cannabis cures. 'Medical Marijuana' is given out legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on chemicals. Pot is only healthy for the human body.

WORLD HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature. ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming pot seeds is the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.

CLOTHES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing, made from pot, down to your grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp clothing; usually 50% hemp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?

The world is crazy...but that does not mean you have to join the insanity. Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word 'marijuana.' Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet. INDUSTRIALIZE HEMP!

The liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: ‘It's more dangerous than we thought.’ Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are still alive and well today.

The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-pot commercials say: If you buy a joint...you are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.

There is only one enemy; the friendly people you pay your taxes to; the war-makers and nature destroyers. With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL. NO ONE HAS EVER, EVER DIED FROM SMOKING POT!! In the entire history of the human race, not one death can be attributed to cannabis. Our society has outlawed grass but condones the use of the KILLERS: TOBACCO and ALCOHOL. Hemp should be declassified and placed in DRUG stores to relieve stress. Hardening and constriction of the arteries are bad; but hemp usage actually enlarges the arteries...which is a healthy condition. We have been so conditioned to think that: Smoking is harmful. That is NOT the case for passive pot.

Ingesting THC, hemp's active agent, has a positive effect; relieving asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a healthy state of being.

(One personal note: During the pregnancy of my wife, she was having some difficulty gaining weight. We were in the hospital. A nurse called us to one side and said: ‘Off the record, if you smoke pot...you'd get something called the munchies and you’ll gain weight.' I swear that is a true story). [Using Medifast coupons to counteract the results of the weight gain later on is a different story.]

The stereotype for a pothead is similar to a drunk, bubble-brain. Yet, the truth is one’s creative abilities can be enhanced under its influence. The perception of time slightly slows and one can become more sensitive. You can more appreciate all arts; be closer to nature and generally FEEL more under the influence of cannabis. It is, in fact, the exact opposite state of mind and body as the drunken state. You can be more aware with pot.

The pot plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that cannabis is not like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where the males appear one way and the females appear very different, physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for cannabis. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically) looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an intense sexuallity. Growers know to kill the males before they fertilize the females. Yes, folks...the most potent pot comes from 'horny females.'

The reason this amazing, very sophisticated, ET plant from the future is illegal has nothing to do with how it physically affects us…..

…POT IS ILLEGAL BECAUSE BILLIONAIRES WANT TO REMAIN BILLIONAIRES!

Surely the point here is that they were special constables, something which every one of the moaners on this site ( like maid) could become if they could come out from behind their computer. They do it for nowt for the good of the community and drugs sometimes attracts low life dross loitering on street corners and the money for drugs has to be got from somewhere i.e. benefits or thieving so well done specials keep it up !!!!

Why has cannabis become so accepted in our country. Its disgusting the amount of times I have heard someone say "I don't take drugs I only smoke a bit of weed" well wake up idiots weed is a drug!!!

Reply Posted by Mr me on Friday July 5 2013 at 22:44
I dont see what the problem is with a bit of weed but 700gms is a lot. And to all you people that say all druggies are the same then f you. I enjoy a smoke most times, but i work hard for a living in a large company and no im not a shelf stacker or bin man or dole dosser, im a manager of a large team and department. I have a house, a car, i pay tax, i pay national insurance, i have a family, plenty of friends, i have a girlfriend, i have a nice home with plenty of possessions, i enjoy holidays and i give to 2 seperate charities and look after my sick dad. I am of completely sane mental health and prime physical condition. I do not lie or cheat or steal or do any wrong and i only get drunk a couple of times a year. And just because i enjoy a couple of spliffs in an evening when im winding down im classed the same as druggies? I even buy my weed off a guy who cannot get a job because hes in a wheelchair so i am also technically helping him make ends meet. Now you honestly tell me that you can put me in the same classification as your typical druggie, YOU CANT! I admit weed is bad to some people, but if it is that bad then why is it legal in some countries but yet the other drugs arent.

I'm so annoyed @ people saying they enjoy taking drugs whether it be a spliff or the hard stuff and they brag about it.They think they can do what ever they like with no consequences. I've never taken drugs and never want to. You can always smell when people are smoking drugs. Many times the houses i walk pass in Barnsley smell of it and it makes me feel sick just with that. I think all places of work should have random drug testing then people would think again.
