How likely is it that you would end up with a custodial sentence after getting caught with 25-50 plants?
Would it be considered as a commercial enterprise?
How many plants are really worth the risk when you consider the consequences?
Growing 50 plants has surely got to attract a custodial sentence!
This is where it starts to get interesting. What is considered the threshold for custody and how is the sentence decided? When you get caught with this amount of plants is there any deciding factors such as the complexity of the set up or the size of the plants that effects the court’s decision? Do they judge the case based on your personal circumstances such as if you work or are on the social claiming benefits?
Please share your experience here if you were caught with this kind of load!
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.
