POLICE uncovered a suspected cannabis factory during an early morning raid in Bournemouth.

More than 20 officers smashed their way into a house in Moorside Road, West Howe, taking the occupant and neighbours by surprise.

They struck just before 9am yesterday and a 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating controlled substances.

Officers arrived at the scene in two vans, three 4x4 vehicles and several other cars and blocked the driveway before smashing glass and using a battering ram to enter the property.

They called in electricity officials to make the property safe before examining the substances they found inside.

Neighbourhood officers then knocked on the doors of properties nearby to reassure residents and tell them what was going on.

Acting Inspector Andy Edwards of Dorset Police, said: “Officers from the West Howe Safer Neighbourhood Team, with the assistance of specialist officers, executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at a premises in the West Howe area of Bournemouth.

“As a result of this a large amount of suspected controlled substances have been located.

“Across Dorset we take drug misuse very seriously and we will take the required action to ensure that our communities are listened to, protected and safe.”

He said he hopes the raid will send a clear message to communities that misuse of drugs will not be tolerated.

The man arrested at the scene is currently helping police with their inquiries.

I like the use of the term 'factory' to make it sound more sinister. Puts me in mind of a evil scientist cooking up a deadly drug whilst laughing. I'm sure the echo are aware cannabis is grown and this is therefore a cannabis farm.

The amount of time and money wasted on busting people cultivating a drug less harmful than alcohol and tobacco is utterly bogus. All this has achieved is potentially putting a non violent criminal behind bars. We need to get our priorities straight, instead of arresting non violent stoners and growers, we should spend this money tackling real issues, such as violent criminals and vicious drunks. End this ridiculous war on cannabis.

I think you have your statistics a bit skewed here. I am not aware that there are thousands of tobacco overdose deaths every year. There are many deaths caused by the long term effects of smoking tobacco just as there are with cannabis. Stating there has only been one death caused by cannabis is stretching it slightly.
Unfortunately there are far too many people out there who are of the belief that cannabis is harmless, they never get to understand this as their brains are usually too addled to realise before it's too late.

Considering 90% of West Howe's original residents were travellers it is quite likely that their descendants are still living in the area !

Cannabis farms on this scale (e.g. industrial rather than some bloke's basement) aren't generally run by non-violent criminals. They're run by organised crime groups and often the day to day tending of the plants is carried out by someone in servitude such as an illegal immigrant who has been trafficed into the country.

Cannabis may be harmless for some users but the illegal drug industry on the whole is fuelled by organised nasty criminals and that's why while drugs are prohibited the police have to continue to raid these kinds of places. If you think industrial cannabis growing is harmless you need to do a bit more research.

Cannabis farms on this scale (e.g. industrial rather than some bloke's basement) aren't generally run by non-violent criminals. They're run by organised crime groups and often the day to day tending of the plants is carried out by someone in servitude such as an illegal immigrant who has been trafficed into the country.

Cannabis may be harmless for some users but the illegal drug industry on the whole is fuelled by organised nasty criminals and that's why while drugs are prohibited the police have to continue to raid these kinds of places. If you think industrial cannabis growing is harmless you need to do a bit more research.
Well actually if this was done in a house so this is a bloke in a basement and if there were cases of human trafficking involved then they would of been reported. Also this is exactly the point, if it was legal and controlled we could prevent all of the organised crime involved, e.g human trafficking, murder etc, because the people growing and selling would be doing it legitimately under stricter regulations set up by the government. The war on drugs will not end, it's a waste of time and money, however by regulating cannabis it is no longer a black market.

I think you have your statistics a bit skewed here. I am not aware that there are thousands of tobacco overdose deaths every year.

Haha, these comments.
The amount of misinformation and ad-hominiem both parties are throwing around is pretty astounding. I'm going to state my opinion and say at the very least it should be decriminalised to take power away from people such as the one in the article whom are likely (read: not definite) a part of organised crime.
I think dealing should be illegal, in regards to my previous statement involving organised crime, but if a guy just wants to smoke every now and then, why shouldn't he be able to grow his own, or at least obtain a licence to grow for personal use under conditions such as medical use?
In addition, people say cannabis causes schitzophrenia amongst other mental health issues; there's zero conclusive scientific evidence to back this up. As far as I can see, it's the other way around; people with said problems being unable to attain medicines from the NHS or therapy sessions without extreme effort or a lot of money respectively are going to resort to an easily attainable (despite what you might think, I guarantee at least two or three houses on your street are home to people who use cannabis in some form, regardless of whether you're down the backstreets of Boscombe or living near the center of Ferndown) substance that takes the edge off for a few hours.
As far as I'm concerned the police can do whatever they want with their money, but the persecution of cannabis smokers, who are otherwise law-abiding citizens for the most part, is reminiscent of tales told of prohibition-era America.

End this ridiculous war on cannabis.
Cannabis farms on this scale (e.g. industrial rather than some bloke's basement) aren't generally run by non-violent criminals. They're run by organised crime groups and often the day to day tending of the plants is carried out by someone in servitude such as an illegal immigrant who has been trafficed into the country. Cannabis may be harmless for some users but the illegal drug industry on the whole is fuelled by organised nasty criminals and that's why while drugs are prohibited the police have to continue to raid these kinds of places. If you think industrial cannabis growing is harmless you need to do a bit more research.
Well actually if this was done in a house so this is a bloke in a basement and if there were cases of human trafficking involved then they would of been reported. Also this is exactly the point, if it was legal and controlled we could prevent all of the organised crime involved, e.g human trafficking, murder etc, because the people growing and selling would be doing it legitimately under stricter regulations set up by the government. The war on drugs will not end, it's a waste of time and money, however by regulating cannabis it is no longer a black market.
Cannabis is grown in houses up and down the country by organised crime gangs, again do some research if you don't know about it. They fill every room with plants and lamps and they bypass the electricity to power the whole operation. If the guy is trafficked they'll probably never find the people who brought him here so they wouldn't mention trafficking offenses in the article.

I didn't ever say the war on drugs is a good idea or cannabis should be legalised I simply pointed out that the vast majority of these cannabis factories in houses are run by organised crime gangs not by your friendly neighbour who likes a spliff at the end of the day.

All this has achieved is potentially putting a non violent criminal behind bars. We need to get our priorities straight, instead of arresting non violent stoners and growers, we should spend this money tackling real issues, such as violent criminals and vicious drunks. End this ridiculous war on cannabis.[/p][/quote]Cannabis farms on this scale (e.g. industrial rather than some bloke's basement) aren't generally run by non-violent criminals. They're run by organised crime groups and often the day to day tending of the plants is carried out by someone in servitude such as an illegal immigrant who has been trafficed into the country. Cannabis may be harmless for some users but the illegal drug industry on the whole is fuelled by organised nasty criminals and that's why while drugs are prohibited the police have to continue to raid these kinds of places. If you think industrial cannabis growing is harmless you need to do a bit more research.[/p][/quote]Well actually if this was done in a house so this is a bloke in a basement and if there were cases of human trafficking involved then they would of been reported. Also this is exactly the point, if it was legal and controlled we could prevent all of the organised crime involved, e.g human trafficking, murder etc, because the people growing and selling would be doing it legitimately under stricter regulations set up by the government. The war on drugs will not end, it's a waste of time and money, however by regulating cannabis it is no longer a black market.[/p][/quote]Cannabis is grown in houses up and down the country by organised crime gangs, again do some research if you don't know about it. They fill every room with plants and lamps and they bypass the electricity to power the whole operation. If the guy is trafficked they'll probably never find the people who brought him here so they wouldn't mention trafficking offenses in the article.

It always amazes me the number of idiots who cram this forum just to give their views on a particular area of Bournemouth, in this case West Howe. Yet more than likely, none of the have lived in West Howe, or visited West Howe. Or, maybe on the visiting side I am wrong. How many of those idiots use The Range, Dunhelm, Matalan, Wickes, Argos, etc, etc.

If you do not know the area except through Echo hearsay, then keep your thoughts to yourself. Or the next time your driving through you might get your wheels or wheel hubs nicked, (A joke).

I think you have your statistics a bit skewed here. I am not aware that there are thousands of tobacco overdose deaths every year. There are many deaths caused by the long term effects of smoking tobacco just as there are with cannabis. Stating there has only been one death caused by cannabis is stretching it slightly.
Unfortunately there are far too many people out there who are of the belief that cannabis is harmless, they never get to understand this as their brains are usually too addled to realise before it's too late.
Clearly you have had too much to drink go roll a big spliff and chill.. Not once did I mention tobacco overdose so not sure why you would say that what I am saying is all of them cause death ok pretty obvious to me. I'd rather if I had a choice have a frazzled brain then have lung cancer or liver disease
Sorry but I'm perfectly sober ! I won't bother with the spliff, thanks anyway.
But please don't try and tell me it is harmless, as I have close experience that it's not ! Unfortunately those involved are dead now, but if you wish to frazzle your own brain then feel free. Its your loss and your friends and families of course, but you will never realise that.
You touch on a point why cannabis should remain illegal. The family. its those within the family that suffer the most. Cannabis users will often put their own needs above those of their families, and children in particular will suffer from neglect like this. Ive worked with family charities and have seen this scenario many times, often it ends up with children taken into care because the user is too far into their cannabis daze to even notice the children. Its true its the same with alcohol and a lot worse, but its extremely unlikely any government will do anything about that.

I think dealing should be illegal, in regards to my previous statement involving organised crime, but if a guy just wants to smoke every now and then, why shouldn't he be able to grow his own, or at least obtain a licence to grow for personal use under conditions such as medical use?
In addition, people say cannabis causes schitzophrenia amongst other mental health issues; there's zero conclusive scientific evidence to back this up. As far as I can see, it's the other way around; people with said problems being unable to attain medicines from the NHS or therapy sessions without extreme effort or a lot of money respectively are going to resort to an easily attainable (despite what you might think, I guarantee at least two or three houses on your street are home to people who use cannabis in some form, regardless of whether you're down the backstreets of Boscombe or living near the center of Ferndown) substance that takes the edge off for a few hours.
As far as I'm concerned the police can do whatever they want with their money, but the persecution of cannabis smokers, who are otherwise law-abiding citizens for the most part, is reminiscent of tales told of prohibition-era America.
I could not agree more with all of this.
