TWO Barnsley men have been arrested after cannabis worth an estimated £150,000 was found at a house.

The illegal set-up was discovered at an address in Highgate Lane during a day of action run by officers from Goldthorpe Safer Neighbourhood Team.

A total of 176 cannabis plants were found inside the property and are estimated to be worth about £150,000.

Two men, aged 39 and 29, have been arrested on suspicion of production of a controlled drug and remain in custody where they're being questioned by detectives.

what I cannot believe is
a - the fools who back up this foul behaviour
b - similar fools who really believe that the Police would take/use/sell said drugs after seizure. Really?
c - anyone who cannot see that people like this are dragging not just Goldthorpe down but Barnsley and South Yorkshire.

The buggers. I am jealous of their horticultural skills. Many a time I have tried to grow herb pots on my window sills and dismally failed.

I LOVE LOL. At least he/she has a sense of humour.

@PurpleHaze - Are you so naive that you think the Old Bill don't sell seized drugs? Look up the following words on Google 'Stoke Newington Police'

@anon - 15 years? More than a rapist then?

cannabis is a starter drug it leads to harder drugs ,i believe it should carry a bigger sentence to deter people from growing it as alot just get the growing equipment confiscated and a warning if its a first offence and this is a known fact thats why dealers are letting other people grow it for them in empty rooms /lofts ect some people are getting big money to grow it for dealers knowing they will only get told off so they are risking it bigger sentences needed

Another set of scumbags bite the dust, so many of these druggies in Barnsley, get shut of them all.

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Friday October 18 2013 at 11:24
@thetruth - Excellent point but you are wasting your time on here darling. Most thickos on WAB think smoking weed is the same as smoking crack. The people that call these weed growers 'druggies' are probably the same idiots who spend the weekend pissed in town. Now we all know that drinking alcohol makes you want to take crystal meth don't we?

too true love. does know one realize that coffe kills more people than cannabis infact there isnt one recorded death from weed IN HUMAN HISTORY. definatly a evil gateway drug lol put the kettle on people lets have a nice cup of legal suicide and inhale a nice breath of legal fresh death fools

Reply Posted by kilkenny on Saturday October 19 2013 at 02:21
@Dodgy Have you ever heard of a dope smoker robbing houses for their fix? No.

In my area there are crack houses galore. Now that is a problem. Take your illeducated views elsewhere.

You are a very ignorant and closed minded individual. You seem consumed by your own judgement of other people. You could do with some dissolving of your ego, mary janes good for that.

Bit crude, but I agree Fawkes.
@Fawkedinhead, keep smoking, see where it gets you.

Reply Posted by @ on Monday October 21 2013 at 13:20
Yeh cause smoking weed defines where I'm going in life, just like drinking coffee defines where a coffee drinker is going in life.

Reply Posted by good girl on Monday October 21 2013 at 13:31
at least the coffee drinker has a clear view of the path in life, not sure about the weed smoker. Hope it takes you were you want to be, it may lead you to dark places eventually. The coffee drinkers path takes him to ermmm lets see,,,,a cafe.

1. it does stink
2.everyone who has bad surroundings are not paranoid,only the weed smokers. others cope.
3. if these familys are smoking weed in front of thier kids, well, god help us all in the very near future. P.s. Im not stuck up or paranoid,and my nose obviuosly works better than yours. sorry its true.

Hey blue,read the post below,an ex smoker has written it. Enough said

weed is a starter drug i know this from past experience it causes depression and,paranoia when you smoke too much,its even worse when you havent got any and you are wanting a smoke ,it destroys marriages /relationships due to paranoia and you cant get owt done when you are on it and if you manage to do owt creative you think its good till you take a proper look at it,ive seen it all in my time it is nice when you are on it ,smells nice tastes nice and you believe it should be legalised when you are on it ,but when you get off it, if you can, thats when you realise what shit it is but each to there own i wunt touch the stuff now as it destroys you and lifes too short and its not needed,,when i say starter drug it makes you that daft you try harder drugs ,,speed ,coke heroine ect ,drug dealers also spike canabis with herione/smack to keep you on it

I personally think its more to do with the personality of the individual rather than the drug itself. Take alcohol for example, most people can enjoy a drink occasionally and not get addicted or let it ruin their lives. However, there are those that do get addicted and it becomes a crutch for them. I believe the main reason any drug becomes a crutch/addiction for people is because they have personal problems, whether it be a personality disorder or other difficulties within their lives.

Here are some results of a study done by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science; 32 percent of people who try tobacco become dependent, as do 23 percent of those who try heroin, 17 percent who try cocaine, 15 percent who try alcohol and 9 percent who try marijuana.

Most people who smoke weed, use it responsibly and it has a positive impact on their lives. I am one of those people. I'm not saying some people don't have negative effects from smoking weed, cause they do, especially in combination with their own personal problems. It's too easy just to blame a drug for your problems. Anyone who has problems which are exacerbated by the use of weed should not use it and seek help such as counseling if necessary.

@Luke B, looking at the figures of the study you have used,Im just thinking that the low dependancy figures for marijuana may be due to the fact that its still illegal to use,so the figures are not true, in that the figure may not be fully known so ,is incorrect. I think the figures for the others,to be fair are high,remebering that they are not just figures,they are human beings,some with familys. All of these addictions have a massive impact on family life,and if children are brought up with these things being seen as the norm within the family,to me its just another destructive habit. I agree with you in part,but it seems to me that all the boundarys are slipping and this is having an impact on society. I have a chronic ailment,but I still dont understand the need for marijuana. Old fashioned maybe but I see the acceptance of drugs as the final downfall of family life. Sorry but that how I feel. Drink/smoking/gambling/swearing all are more acceptable to some now and its had a massive bad impact,god help us if drugs get into the mix. I realise,I,ll get shot down by those that use it,but its not acceptable to use any kind of mind altering drugs anywhere around children. Apart from monkey see monkey do,it can be dangerous.

the same could be said with perscription meds, read the ingredients and side effects next time you take a parocetmol i would rather take a natural pain relief than a man made one (by the way i dont smoke weed but have before i enjoy it now and again especially when im depressed and it picks me up) that is why i disagree with people that are totally anti weed and wont accept its benefits at all, its just stupid. but these people will happily buy a 20 pack of cancer sticks just because its legal and it pretty packaging

Reply Posted by Afro man on Monday October 21 2013 at 14:12
well, if you take it for depression,when the effects wear off,what ever it is your down about,is still there. so what do you do? smoke abit more. Then the weed isnt strong enough because the depresseant,s still there,so you need something stronger. The cig smokers probobly want to stop but cant. I doubt they buy them because of the throat cancer pictures on them, they too are addicted. I take your point about pain relief though...maybe.

Hows about ppl stop smoking drugs/ taking em and grows up and get a Job? Its not that hard , all us "working" are paying for all this, rediculas

Reply Posted by Luke B on Monday October 21 2013 at 15:32
Smoking weed does not equate to being unemployed. Plenty of working people enjoy weed responsibly.

Reply Posted by good girl on Monday October 21 2013 at 15:42
What Luke B, while the kids are in bed or whilst watching telly with them? Lovely school yard topic eh. I really dont see how weed and resposible go together where kids are around. Bonkers.
Its not just the weed,its the whole acceptance of an illegal drug being taken in front of kids in thier home that I will never understand. Why would a parent allow it?

Reply Posted by Luke B on Monday October 21 2013 at 17:54
I'm not a parent and I didn't mention anything about kids. That's a different debate. Personally I wouldn't smoke in front of my potential future kids whether it be tobacco or cannabis (I would vape though) because of the carcinogens. I'd much rather be stoned in front of them than be drunk, but I wouldn't do that on a regular basis either.

The reasons behind the legal status of the drug are flawed and not based on science which they should be. I make my opinions based on my own research and scientific facts and not on political bs.

drugs make them all legal ,get rid of the dealers let people have there own choice to take them or not just a thought as theres only one winner the dealer and it is correct they do spike cannabis with heroine so just remember when you are smoking your weed from a dealer it could be laced with smack ive herd many dealers do this they sprinkle the brown powder it in to keep you running back for it ,never trust a dealer as they like to get control of you all for your money ,gold ,possesions ect pure scum
