The Economist - 'Quietly, cannabis has in effect been decriminalised in Britain'
Awesome little article here about how small growers like us are on the front line of the drugs war... and winning it!
Basically, small grows are harder (and therefore more expensive to find), less fruitful for the police (they're spending more money finding two plants rather than a whole factory), less likely to be connected to criminals, and far, far greater in number. The mix of all this basically means that the courts cannot fight this.

Do dealers come into this? I mean whats the issue with supplying something there is a demand for. If a dealer strapped you down and force fed you heroine then fair enough... but people choose to purchase weed just like they chose to buy alcohol in america during the prohibition and this will be the case as long as somebody wants it. Prohibition doesn't work.
And the last statement would also be caused by legalisation/decriminalisation - the thrill of the illegal is what tempts some people to use cannabis, normalize it and that disapears....
