Doesd anyone know what the UK position is on growing your own in light of the recent reclassification? <IMG SRC="confused.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    It hasn't been made legal - only reclassified - so growing it would still be considered illegal. But that's never stopped me yet ... <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Yeah but under the last act the crime of cultivation was considered in the same light as being concerned in the supply of and hence carried much higher penalty (average 2 years for first time offence with five or more plants). I want to start a sea of green cycle with maybe 40 to 60 plants giving me monthly yields of roundabout 20 Oz. But the wife is nervous as under the current (pre April) rules i could get roundly fukt and she dont wanna be a single mum. <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    It would still be illegel.
    Really the only difference would be how keen the police are to catch you.

    The new rules mainly concern possesion only, if your caught growing that much your fucked, maybe not as much as before, but you'd still go down for it <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    reading between the lines.... I think the police are going to ease up on *all* types of pot arrests except large-scale dealing after the law change... the government aren't stupid.. they know that many people are going to start growing, too many to bust... if people start growing their own, tens of millions of pounds will be staying in the country, shitty soapbar could become a thing of the past (rather than an NHS time-bomb)... and the horticultural lighting sector will go into HYPERDRIVE!

    another forgotten point.... cannabis has up until now been classified as having no medical value, which we all know is the worst kind of bullshit (believe me i know first-hand)... many lawyers believe that prohibition of medical cannabis already breaks EU human rights laws, but no-one has challenged it yet..... but once British law changes, the government may find it's hand tipped... especially given the undercurrents of a shuffle to the left RE drug laws around Spain, Belguim, Italy, Switzerland and here in the UK..... in the end they may *have* to allow people to grow their own (although dealing is gonna remain risky)

    It's where I'm living now, I think he is about 60 years old with Arthritis, maybe. He won a court case to grow his own Cannabis in his garden, for medical reasons.

    A friend of mine has Kronos, used to be in agony when he took a piss. He now smokes everyday to relieve the pain, if it works, it works...

    Also, wondering how direct from Amsterdam you get it in your area?

    I get from a source in Manchester who bringsit direct from the dam. And it was kinda worrying me that the posts about pricing were so low cost. I'm getting half bars for £200 but some poster were quoting £60 per oz retail. Thats some serious shit Madelaine <IMG SRC="cool.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
