Class B=Class C for us Brits! Growing OK??

I was just wondering if anyone knows more on this. I know it'll be downgraded from class B to class C at the end of July(supposedly making it an unarrestable offence if found with a small quantity), but I was wondering if we'll be able to grow a certain amount of plants for personal use or not, and also I've heard that sentences for dealing will go up to 15yrs or something stupid .
Anyone have more info on this?

This is straight from the horses mouth:

Cannabis Reclassification
On 29th January 2004, cannabis will be reclassified from a Class B to a Class C drug across the UK. As a controlled drug, production, supply and possession remains illegal.

Changes to the law/penalties
Cannabis will still be illegal. It is only the penalties that will change.

Supply, dealing, production (including cultivation) and trafficking
The maximum penalty will remain at 14 years’ imprisonment. In addition, the maximum penalty for dealing ALL class C substances will increase from 5 to 14 years’ imprisonment. Other class C drugs include GHB and Valium.

Possession
The maximum penalty will be reduced from 5 years’ to 2 years’ imprisonment. Under new police guidance (applying to England and Wales), there will be a presumption against arrest for adults, but not for young people:

For adults
Most offences of cannabis possession will likely result in a warning and confiscation of the drug – unless there are aggravating factors, such as smoking in a public place or repeat offending, which may lead to arrest and prosecution.

However, on a more anecdotal level there seems to be a softening:

Daily Post


A GROW-it-yourself cannabis supplier was jailed for 15 months at Caernarfon Crown Court yesterday after pleading guilty to possession and supply of the drug.

Police raided the then home of Lawrence Laverick, 23, in Jubilee Street, Llandudno, and found stems of dried cannabis, packets of seeds, magazines and videos about cultivation of the drug - and £450 cash hidden in a microwave oven.

A month later police raided an industrial unit at Llandudno on which he held a lease, in which seeding boxes and dried cannabis were discovered. The combined value of cannabis found was £2,430.

Laverick, now of Ty'n y Terfyn, Llangernyw, near Abergele, was told by Judge John Rogers, QC: "Those who supply and grow cannabis for sale go to prison."
That last part could be important in the future, a distinction has definately been drawn there between cultivation for SALE and cultivation for PERSONAL CONSUMPTION.

However, when it comes right down to it we are still putting the likes of Chris Baldwin, the founder of two cannabis cafes in Worthing (thanks for the smokes guys), to jail. He got six months last week.

Lucky tokers I guess, we still have to watch our backs despite growing for personal use.

The law is massively skewed still but we're on our way.

For the smokers amongst you yes....

Spare a thought for the jailed growers who have to watch their arses (literally) for your sins...

But on a happier note, happy birthday guys, a joint will be smoked in your honour down this way too.

Many happy returns.

Its a step in the right direction on my birthday but can you imagine the lucky stoner who has their birthday the day its legalised. Shit everyone will be celebrating. Legally I cant see this changing a great deal but at least after all this time its a start.

When we finally get a definate date for legalisation I'm gonna set some plants flowering so they get harvested and dried in time for the day. And I'm gonna smoke like I aint smoked before!!
But 'til that day comes we'll just have to make do with these bullshit laws.

I'm gonna vote Lib Dem next election. That guy with the ginger hair wants to legalise the herb! He seems sound enough to me.

That's true SS. I know I should take an interest in the running of my country, I guess we have a duty to.
