    YouTube video traps cannabis grower

    A cannabis grower let police in on his secret hobby after posting home videos of the crop on YouTube, it has emerged.
    The 25-year-old was arrested after officers saw footage on the website documenting the stages of growth at his home in Bridgwater, Somerset.
    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 and confirmed that the videos have been removed from the site.

    Makes me worry every time i read something like this on the net. Especially because i post my grows on here.
    Hmmm better take a break from the dare to post your pic thread. ( i mean all those pics wernt really me, honest, just some innocent other guy i stole photos of :bolt:)

    And that class B bullshit really annoys me. They go on about super skunk being so strong which is why they have made it class B. BULLSHIT.
    Its not going to stop anything. The real solution would be to legalize and stop the sale of these ' super potent strains'.

    I know i wouldn't miss them if i could smoke bud legally in a cafe.

    I don't think anyone would to be honest. I mean alcohol is available in bars and shops but when we drink we don't drink the strongest alcohol we can find like absynth.
    We have a beer or a mixer. The same with smoking i think.
    Anyway this is kinda off track.....:smoking:
  2. thats nuckin futs man! thats probably why using your real name as your alias... is a bad idea :bongin:

  7. I beat you to thissss :p

    By like 10 minutes haha

    Part from mine didnt have the picture.

  8. Yeh i know, its fucking bullshit but we've just gotta live with it.

    I dont see the laws changing for atleast 5-6 years, and thats being very optimistic.

    I think the goverment really needs to realise this isnt a war they can win but to be honest i think they already know that. They're just using cannabis as a distraction from real issues and an excuse for others.

    Until they realise the benefits of legalization far outway those of of keeping it illegal, its never going to change. Unless theres a significant uprising anyway, but i dont see that happening in the UK.

  9. yeah theres only so much you should say/put online
  10. That is a fucking joke man! and im moving back to the UK in april, oh joy!

    well fucking said man + green bar thingy!

  11. Aha, oo well, atleast the UK gains another grower :D

    Oh and cheers for the "+ green bar thingy!" lol

  12. but you dont have your last name or a location
    also there are no images where you posses marijuana that i have seen you could just say i was fucking around on the internet
  13. Thats actually very true. The one picture i did post which would be 'potential evidence' i blanked my face out.
