WEED SEED: Plastic packs of cannabis seeds.

First published in News by

THE region’s first pro-cannabis rally is underway in Redcar.

Cannabis enthusiasts from across the North-East set up camp at Redcar Rugby Club in Green Lane this morning.

The rally has been organised by Teesside Pro-Cannabis Movement (TPCM) as part of a campaign to legalise the class B drug.

Police are monitoring the event and say they will deal robustly with anyone behaving in a criminal or antisocial manner.

Organiser John Holiday said: “We’re educated peaceful people and not idiots. We’re here today with something to give back to the community, and we’re here to share our experiences and help each other.”

Hope the police are their with face recognition camera technology as well as noting down car number plates.

That'll give them a start on future crimes committed in the North East!

Well done John and Co. Great to see the movement pushing further north. To all the absolute retards above me; go and do some research. Alcohol and tobacco kill more people a year than every other drug on this earth combined so get off your moral high horse. This herb is helping many sick people and is not being legalised because then people could grow their own instead of big pharma making massive profits from the sick.

Well done Redcar police also. From what John said they were fantastic throughout the whole process and were extremely helpful.

All of this hard work is going to pay off soon and we shall all reap the benefits of a free society.

The police were extremely helpful and had absolutely no presence at the event and were not the slightest bit interested in arresting anybody. Your reefer madness comments belong in the 70s, mate.

Cannibas madness people and dope heads read about new born babies going cold turkey. There is a significant increase of babies being born to addicted parents. If you want to destroy yourselves then go ahead but a poor defenceless baby as no chance. Tougher sentences must be brought against people and to stop young people and others being brainwashed into thinking cannibas is a wonder drug that people must have on a daily basis. And alcohol is also a cause for concern. Families who live with it know what it does to husbands .wives.partners and friends.
Think about others and not just yourselves.

So why not legalise heroin then? Same argument surely?
