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.

What is the sentence for growing upto 100 plants

This is in the serious side of cultivation and anyone who has attempted this level of production must have some balls. Surely this is not a case of if you will get custody but more of how long the sentence will be. Anyone thinking of growing on this scale should assess what they could lose if the crop gets busted very seriously.

What would be the consequence in court for a factory producing 100 plants?

Would there be any circumstances that would prevent you facing custody and get you off with a tag or community service order?

please share your experience here.


  1. I think it is greedy for someone to want this amount of cannabis.

    Fair enough growing a bit of home grown to smoke but this is too much for one person.

    Cannabis causes problems

  2. YES very true i totaly agree with GREED but as for 2many for 1 grower i think is just perfict, i got busted 5wks ago and awaiting a charge of cultivation for personal use, yes very lucky now awaitng dooms day,i havnt a clue what im exspecting any ideas??????? mrT.H.C

  3. Its all bollox they should just let us get on with growing what is only just a plant at the end of the day

  4. Got nicked with 85 plants, [59 rooted cuttings] and they are sending it to Crown court as they cannot sentence for long enough in Magistrates apparently.....No sign of a fair trial here :{

  5. No victim apart from me with the vandalism they did by flooding the room with 150 litres of nutes.

  6. What happened about the 85 plants then BobWebb?

  7. Were they hard on you?

    Fuck being up against that for a charge!

  8. my mate was in court the other week for cultivation of 66 plants and he walked out of there with an 18 month suspended sentence. Everyone on the planet knew he was growing in his flat as he was doing it for at least 5 years. I don't know what kind of set up he had and I'm sure he has loads of history for other offences but no drug offences.

  9. Check out the new sentencing guidelines which are posted in this blog. This clearly states what a judge will be thinking when sentencing you for growing cannabis in the UK.

  10. Where's the link dude? not everybody does big grows for money or weed to smoke. I was making oil. I go up in the morning for 83 plants and only now starting to feel like I got caught.

  12. On Monday my fiance got arrested for cultivating cannabis (60 plants) he went to Magistrates and they said he was in category 2 and is looking at 2-5 years. He has been remanded as he is already on licence from a previous offence and has been recalled for 28 days. He is in Crown on the 21/06/16. Does anyone have any idea what he is looking at? I am so worried. Many thanks
