ACT Policing seized a number of cannabis plants and a substance suspected to be steroids during two simultaneous Drugs of Dependence Act 1989 (DODA) search warrants earlier today (Thursday 18 July 2013).

About 6.30am, ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations members executed two simultaneous DODA search warrants at premises located in Isabella Plains and Richardson.

During the search police located sheds at both premises which contained hydroponic growing equipment, a number of cannabis plants at varying stages of growth and dried plant matter suspected to be cannabis. Police seized a total of 30 cannabis plants with an estimated street value of over $60,000.

Police also seized a number of vials of a substance suspected to be steroids from the premises in Richardson.
ACT Firearms Registry attended the Richardson premises and seized five registered firearms which were incorrectly stored.

A 42-year-old Richardson man and a 40-year-old Isabella Plains man will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at later date to face charges of Cultivating a Controlled Plant and Possession of Steroids.

Heroin, cocaine, meth.
Those are the drugs you want to be taking off the streets, not cannabis.

How proud those officers must be to get rid of such a harmless drug

I agree that heroin, cocaine and meth are drugs that we would want take off the streets but…
“How proud those officers must be to get rid of such a harmless drug”…Wow, what an ignorant, childish statement.

I just can’t believe that people still contend marijuana has no side effects and is completely harmless.

Having had a friend who succumbed to peer pressure once and was subsequently so messed up in the head they’ve been kept in care for more than 10 years now, this ‘harmless’ approach floors me.

I had a friend like that once, she had 3 whole marijuana’s to herself and no one was there to guide her through the bad trip she had. She first had it when she snorted some lines of it at a rave party and she was instantly hooked. When we found her we were shocked, it was obviously not her first time, but she was inexperienced and she did not have a guide to show her how a bong works and what shotty is for.

When we found her she was unconscious in the gutter and there was a bloody budding blossom of the Slackers Garnish protuding from a hole she had pierced in her vein with a piece of rusty glass she had found on the road……… They patched her up and brought her back down from her elevated state with chips and tea, but the damage was done because the bud coming came straight from a dirty plant from the ground and with it being in her for so long, her thumb had turned green and it caused immediate, severe mental issues for her.

…She believed she could fly like she saw some asian kid do when he took the pot.

Later in life this caused her to crash her car at high speed into a busload or rapists and crackheads that the prison was shuffling around because apparently everybody’s shuffling.

The impact was so severe that the crackhead sex offender who was sitting at the spot she hit was charged with rape because he inadvertantly invaded her personal space when she hurtled towards him and impregnated her with his potent crack-sperm which can get you preggers just by thinking about it.

Now she has a weed habit and a crack-baby and thats why you shouldnt smoke weed!!

Wow that’s put me off weed for life 🙂

Well science tells us that the MMR vaccine is harmless and yet there were mothers eager to explain how their child went into a decline after it and ended up with autism.

If your friend was “experimenting” she (or he, I’ll pick she) was probably late teens or early 20s, when many mental illnesses start to appear. Science tells us marijuana doesn’t “cause” mental illness, it might help treat some, make others worse or trigger episodes. Some schizophrenics report that it makes them feel better but it might make them worse in the long run. Dunno bout that. But just because your friend had a bad trip, doesn’t mean marijuana caused her ongoing problems. Maybe her emerging problems that nobody had yet noticed contributed to her bad trip and afterwards she had a lot more trouble ignoring the things that felt wrong.

I’m sorry your friend has had a rough 10 years. Hope things pick up.
