Fines and Sentences for growing cannabis in the UK

We just thought it might be interesting to have a blog to share experiences with the Law regarding cannabis.

Approximately 2 million people smoke cannabis in the UK on a regular basis and over 50% of 16-29 year olds have tried it at least once. We would rather the law was on our side with this issue but unfortunately it is not. Our opinion is that it should be a matter of one's own judgement rather than criminal charges.
Please share your experience with getting caught growing or using cannabis. It doesn't matter how big or how small the crime was as this will help people worried about the law.

Sentence for growing over 100 cannabis plants?

From what I remembered of when cannabis was down-graded to a class C drug the sentences were not so high. Now that it is a class B, what kind of sentences would you be looking at for a factory with over 100 plants?

If there is anyone out there who was crazy enough to cultivate over 100 plants we would love to hear about it so please share your story.

  1. When cannabis was class c the viatnamese who were filling house's with weed were getting 2-4 year sentences for a whole house load.

    Now I think if you got court with 100 plants you would get a prison term of no let than 2 years.

  2. Recently my friend got caught with 110 plants and he thought that was him finished.

    They were fully matured and ready to harvest and in his loft.

    He got 6 months on tag and a suspended sentence for 18 months or something like that.

    Couldn't beleive it when i heard he got off on a tag.

    Think he was very lucky.

    Only thing is now he can't grow at all :-(

    1. Is this a grower in the USA?

      5 years is crazy for just 115 plants!!

      That would never happen in the UK unless you had some crazy history of growing hundreds of plants before and already went to prison etc..

  9. I was caught recently growing 107 plants in total. Buds were fully mature and ready to harvest in a weeks time. They tried to say it was for commercial sale but i managed to walk out of there with just a 6 month suspended sentence and 200 hours community order.

    I couldn't believe it when I walked out of there as the Judge had me convinced I was getting put down.

    Propper put it on me hard like i was at school being told off by the head teacher when i was 14 years old.

    I am feeling very lucky to be walking the streets of london once again I can tell you that for sure.

  13. Got caught with just over 160 which puts you into Cat 2 Commercial Growing. Lead Roll starting point is 6 years. Significant Roll is 4 years and Lesser Roll is 1 year. If you are not involved with anyone else you should only be sentenced under Significant Roll. If you have no previous and plead guilty early on (30% credit), you could get it down under a 2 year sentence with some mitigation, which makes you eligible for a suspended sentence. However, it's not the time that will hurt. It's the proceeds of crime order at that level. They will value 100 plants at 40g a plant at street value = £40,000. Which you will have to pay back, if you admit to, or they find evidence of previous crops, the POCA increases to there estimation of the profits they think you have made. This is what really hurts. So keep it under 26 folks or 9 if you have previous. That includes babies on vegetation i.e 13 in flower, 13 veg :) Awaiting sentence in May after one of my co-def's trial.
