A MAN and a woman have been given official drugs warnings after police officers discovered a "potential cannabis factory" in their Newquay home.

Police carried out a search of the property on Tor Road on Tuesday morning after securing a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Sergeant Andrew Honeywill hailed the operation as a success and called on the town's residents to continue providing intelligence on drug offenders.

He said: "This was an example of good proactive police work involving officers from Newquay. Further warrants will be executed in the near future, as we continue to disrupt local drug networks."

PC Alex Allen, neighbourhood beat manager, added: "Cannabis, whatever people's feelings on the drug, remains an illegal substance in this country and will not be tolerated in Newquay.

"A successful warrant was executed this morning whereby two local people have been processed."

Contact police with information on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

    bissoeboy Do not respond to fissionchips' bigotry. Its a prohibitionist troll indoctrinated by reefer madness propaganda. It will not listen to sense, logic and reason.

    You seem very angry sir. I think you need put down the daily mail and chill out. May I recommend sitting down, having a nice relaxing smoke and thinking about it logically! Ignorance and prejudice are responsible for millions of deaths my friend, cannabis is not! Oh and stoner or not everyone has the right to enter into the debate, especially if it is concerning them. They are, in fact, far more qualified to discuss the matter than you and are doing so in a more mature manner than you seem capable of! so why do you feel the right to get involved??

    Well as the non-afflicted are fully aware stoners have no support, chance how much a couple of 'comment warriors' keep posting their drivel. As I had been saying the lack of support for cannabis addicts would be shown in the Corby by election and just look at the result: Peter Reynolds (Cannabis) 137 votes and that's just 0.38% share of the vote. THAT WAS LAUGHABLY PATHETIC AND SHOWS NO STONER SUPPORT WHATSOEVER. Why do stoners imagine that they command the right to enter into debate concerning their vile, disgusting and dangerous addiction? FACTS: CANNABIS IS ILLEGAL CANNABIS WILL ALWAYS BE ILLEGAL STONERS ARE CRIMINALS STONERS WILL ALWAYS BE CRIMINALS CANNABIS IS THE FIRST STEP TO HARD DRUGS CANNABIS HAS THEREFORE KILLED MILLIONS STONERS ARE DANGEROUS SCUM Now for the benefit of the comment warriors sing the song ….. You've got me under your skin You've got me deep in the brain of you So deep in your brain I'm really a part of you You've got me under your skin You tried so not to give in I said to myself this humiliation will go so well But why should you try to resist when, stoner, you know darn well You've got me under your skin ;-)''''

    Prohibition is an ineffective, dangerous economically draining fail. When trade is outlawed only outlaws trade Now we are in the worst case scenario. Our leaders prefer their income from the prohibition infrastructure. Forget harm/crime reduction. Throwing harmless people in jail or simply just blighting their lives with criminals records or depriving people of this medicine, while gifting the market to criminals is not reducing harm. Any thinking person knows this. Do not support a war on peoples freedom.

    The sooner the police stop wasting their time and our money going after the harmless cannabis(much less harmful than alcohol or tobacco both of which are legal) the better. Cannabis even has some beneficial medicinal uses which certainly cannot be saiod for tobacco. Our drug laws are a farce.

    From the article it sounds like they were given a caution (if that.... official drugs warnings, what are they exactly?!?) for having an empty grow room set up......... ***?!?!?!? Sounds about right though, police intimidation tactics. No cannabis = no prosecution. I would have declined to accept the caution or the official drugs warnings, I bet they would have had to let the couple go scott free cos there is no way CPS will go to court without any hard evidence, having a grow room is not illegal in any way shape or form. All of the equipment is freely available and there is no law against having a grow room in your house. Only POSSESION, distribution, production or trafficking of controlled substances is deemed illegal in this country due to legislation but there has to actually be some cannabis present otherwise they have nothing.

    In Newquay?! How about you lazy time wasting police go out and stop the mindless alcoholics running riot on the streets every night causing criminal damage, assaulting people, vomiting and urinating everywhere insted? Oh you can't be bothered? Just want to go for the easy targets eg. people sat at home quietly enjoying a smoke instead? That's all it is, bone idle police that are too scared/lazy to stop actual criminals, I'm all for the police cuts, they clearly have too much time on their hands, either that or they are simply incapable of doing their jobs, I pay my taxes, I do not expect MY money to be wasted on non crimes like this, either go out and clean up the streets or stop wasting my money, simple as that.
