Twelve large cannabis plants were seized from a house in Horsford after police carried out a drugs warrant.

Officers forced entry to an address on Holt Road shortly after 6pm on Sunday and discovered the plants, cultivating equipment and a quantity of harvested herbal cannabis in the bedroom and loft area.

A 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and was taken to Aylsham Police Investigation Centre for questioning. He admitted growing the plants and was given a formal police caution. Police executed the warrant after receiving information from members of the public.

PC Andy Dye said: “Illegal drug activity will not be tolerated in our community and I would like to reassure residents that information passed to police will be dealt with appropriately and acted on.”

  • Meanwhile GW Pharma grow 60,000 of the exact same plants, at a state of the art location in Kent, with total impunity. They extract all the ingredients, bottle it and sell it to the NHS at huge profit. It's cannabis in a bottle and deemed safe and effective medicine by the Home Office. We are being lied to. Stop the hypocrisy and legalise the possession of cannabis. Massive benefits will ensue.
