Get stricter

Week after week people are caught growing cannabis plants.

Are these plants grown in social housing?

If so, are these people being evicted after being caught?

Or are the people who manage these houses just turning a blind eye because the people who are growing these drugs have kids, so they can’t put them out?

But they shouldn’t be growing cannabis if kids are living there.

They would only have themselves to blame.

These people bring trouble to communities.

After they have grown it, they start selling it from their houses, bringing unwanted people to their areas where decent people live.

And we know smoking cannabis often leads to taking other drugs.

So come on, start getting strict with these people.
