  1. Check this out:

    The 25-year-old was arrested after officers saw footage on the website documenting the stages of growth.

    The man made his arrest even easier after using his real name as his "internet handle".
    Police searched the house and seized one large cannabis plant and associated hydroponics equipment used to maximise heat and light conditions.

    PC Adrian Peck, of Avon and Somerset police, said: "The male had been videoing the growth of the plant over a number of months and uploading his horticultural endeavours onto the site to document it – providing us with fairly conclusive evidence.
    "The cultivation of cannabis is illegal. If you break the law and are foolish enough to then advertise your criminal activities on the internet, it makes it very easy for the Police to catch you."

    Police said the cannabis produced by the single plant could have had a potential street value of up to £500; both the plant and growing equipment will be destroyed.
    The man admitted the offence of cultivating cannabis, now a Class B drug, and received an official police warning.

    The force said it was not its policy to release the names of people who are warned.

  2. all he got was a warning?????????????? WTF?

    i guess justice is served
  3. In the UK if its your first time caught with posession you get a warning then a fine the second time and finally a third time it might be jail time
  4. why would he use his real name for his handle when he's showing videos himself growing? idk there's gotta be a better name he coulda used

  5. Yeh but he was growing..

    Anyways. Aslong as you have under 5 plants and theres no evidence of dealing, in the UK its likely you wont get jail time but not unheard of.
