Switched on Gardener Raided ?

Right ahead of J-Day, and just before the submissions due on the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975, a large police operation targeting suppliers of gardening equipment has been undertaken, rumor has it, this is the Switched on Gardener:

If anything, this only further provides evidence that legislation providing for responsible personal use, of a herb needs to be considered, which... sounds crazy I know...

If you are tired of this ridiculous law, which only persecutes people for exercising their right to travel within their own consciousness, prohibits spiritual or religious freedoms, ruins careers and travel opportunities by labeling them criminals, and locking them in a cage...

All the while, the person actually using the herb, has no victims, and have hurt no one. And we live in 2010...

The law causes more harm than the herb itself...

Prohibiting people from engaging in business for growing a herb, or gardening equipment, and creating an enormous amount of hurdles just to grow industrial hemp, is quite frankly bizarre, this law is a violation of basic human rights.

I urge all our readers to make submissions to the law commission BEFORE APRIL 30:
