How about giving the owners of GW Pharmaceuticals 14 years for growing 30 tons of medicinal cannabis every year? They use it to produce Sativex and sell to the NHS at huge profit. But if you try to get it for arthritic pain you're not allowed because it's too expensive (I've tried). It's no different to what this poor chap was doing, no different at all. But as the government invested £10million of our money in this enterprise and give them substantial tax breaks they don't want us criminal citizens denting their friends profits and their dividends. This is what our corrupt politicians are up to - persecuting us for harming no-one and profiting from the very same herb we can use to help alleviate our many ailments.
