Far to much of it going on. My grandson says children say a teacher is doing likewise. Seems Ryde should be twinned with Columbia bert says.
Hope the police catch all these bad people before all our youngsters minds are bent for ever.

Mary you are correct that their is far too many drugs grown here. Children are now exposed to the smell of dope than they are normal cigarettes now.

Sort of out of the frying pan into the fire. I suggest you get your grandson to report anyone suspected of growing, as he can do so safely anonymously now. Can’t provide link as site don’t allow it, but he should be able to find it easily.

I’m really sorry to disillusion you Mary, but in my experience and from that of many others, the Police are not interested at all, in these and also other crimes..
•However, I wouldn’t want to discourage anyone from reporting such crimes – just don’t hold out much hope that they will be investigated.

I have reported fights between groups of youths on the street (in which one local boy was ‘glassed’ in the face and had to go to hospital), vandalism, drug parties (2wks ago) and an assualt. In each case the Police didn’t even bother to come out to investigate.
– I don’t know what else we can do.

I did write a well considered and polite reply to your post Mary.
However it hasn’t got past the censor.
Unfortunately, there is not a free expression of views on this site, they only allow things their censor agrees with..

Sadly drugs dealing will prevail until the law allows much harsher sentences.
The profits are so great that fines are pointless.
It just means increased dealing to pay the fines and then basically carrying on as before.
Custodial sentences will send out a message and deter all but the hardened criminals. Drugs benefit no one. If you have information then report it to the Police. Drug dealing is a pernicious and evil crime. Think of our children’s future.

You must remember cannabis has a lot of good uses as well, stops spasam and pain in certain spinal injuries

So does morphine. But nearly all drugs are easily abused because of addiction. Strongest ones are deadly when abused, others take longer when abused.

stuff like morphine is easily abused because it’s injected, more invasive and you can overdose (just like you can with alcohol, a legal drug). weed is just inhaled and exhaled & you cant overdose. hard to abuse that.

I hate the smell of cannabis, but you can’t escape it, it’s everywhere. I wish they’d ban it’s use in public places certainly, as I’m just fed up with having to smell it , not a day goes by without I have to smell it somewhere, but on the other hand, I think there are lots of things that would be banned if we just looked at people getting addicted.

It’s like, who or what is to blame? The drug, or alcohol or whatever, or the addictive personality of whoever abuses it? It’s not actually the fault of a bottle of whisky if someone is so weak they have to drink the whole lot , or a packet of cigarettes if someone has to smoke the whole pack in half an hour, or a video game if someone can’t stop playing it.

There are people who will get addicted to anything, but they are excused with “oh they can’t help it, they are addicted, it is an illness”, , but it just seems like excuses when other people can drink whisky or play video games without getting addicted and it becoming a problem.

So, do you blame the alcohol, drug, game, or the weakness of some people who don’t know when to stop?

I hate weed and cigarette smoke and don’t much like the smell of alcohol or the effect it has on certain stupid people who can’t leave it alone, and I am not addicted to playing video games, or anything else, in case anyone was wondering. I was just sort of thinking aloud.

Things get banned for having detrimental effects on people, but it’s only some people , so should everyone be denied something, just because some are so weak they can’t say no?

For myself, I’d be happy if they banned cannabis use everywhere, but just saying.

Remember if you can smell it on someone’s exhaled breath, then you are also likely to be inhaling their CV virus ridden breath too.

Keep away as dealers don’t social distance, deal in dirty cash, and clearly care little for others well being.

Report these people if safe to do so.

Binky, yes, that is something I have thought too. I did wonder a while back, when I was walking past a couple with a pushchair, and was more than the required distance away, the woman was talking on her mobile phone and turned her head in my direction as she walked past, and I could smell her stale cigarette breath , as well as her strong and harsh, cheap smelling perfume, I wondered if germs were also coming off her as i could smell her breath from such a distance away.

Most unpleasant anyway and I was glad I was not having to sit in a confined space anywhere near her. After all, if the smell of someone’s breath can carry for such a distance, then so must any germs in their breath too, surely?

Firstly Candy, it is illegal already. Right? We got that one cleared up pretty quick.

Secondly, is there anything you do like? You don’t like drink, drugs or fags, and you’re not addicted to playing video games? Loosen up girl! Relax, have some fun. You never know you may even… god forbid, enjoy yourself.

Thirdly, you question why banning something just because of the actions of the few, but then in your next breath to advocate for the banning of weed? Don’t contradict yourself girl, you know you’re better than that.

Candy, I have to say your comment brought me much joy, yet confusion. When this whole lock dock is over, I think you need a night on the town and let your hair down! Stay safe!

I do wonder if the legalization and taxation of weed would not only maybe help with the massive debt we are now facing, but also make it more safely available to those who wish to partake, as with alcohol or cigarettes as well as making it less available to young and vulnerable people.

Amused reader, it’s rather sad that you think if someone does not like drink, drugs, or fags & is not addicted to video games that there is nothing left to like.

I like to study the natural world and hear the birds sing and grasshoppers chirrup and bees buzz, and happily been able to hear a little more of them recently, but probably not so much soon with more cars and people about.

Going out for a night on the town is my idea of Hell, so thanks, but no thanks!

I don’t believe I contradicted myself, I just have the ability to think like a person who can look at things from all around and not just one point of view.

It is human beings who are the problems, not the substance or thing they get addicted to. Some people have addictive personalities, is it their fault? Idk, maybe in some cases it is, others maybe not. Whatever, sometimes things need to be banned to protect the greater number because there are too many weak and foolish people who abuse the drug or whatever and then become a problem generally by making themselves a nuisance to society.

Bet all these are drinkers every night though , worst drug out of all of them.. police would even agree alcohol should be banned before cannabis.

why has the man been named but not the woman – she is guilty by association and should be named – this is sex discrimination.
