ALMOST 1,000 cannabis plants were found at a North Oxfordshire industrial estate yesterday.

The landlord of the unit at Banbury Business Park, Aynho Road, Adderbury, let police in after another tenant reported smelling the drug at about 10.30am.

Sgt Dave Atherton, pictured, said he believed the operation – including a watering system – had been active for about three months and could take up to 3,000 plants.

He said: “I have 10 years’ experience and this is the biggest one I have come across.

“It is a well-organised, well- planned, commercial set-up.”

No arrests have been made.

Sgt Atherton said: “We have active lines of inquiry to follow as to who may be involved.”

Anyone with information can call the force on 101.

So 10 years of wasting your time and our tax on an unwinable war. If all users were allowed to grow 25 plants legally then this sort of nonsense would stop and £millions would be saved. If GW Pharma are allowed to grow 60,000 plants on the Kent science park (google nabiximols) and sell it to the /NHS as an extract why can't we grow a small number of plants for personal use? Until such time these operations will grow and grow, police ops will further force up the price, and this will no longer be the biggest you have ever seen.

Cannabis is an amazing medicine and is really good for the body in so many different ways, if you are responsible for your own mind and perception of reality and know how important it is to align with truth (just look at how hitler mind controlled all those germans or how Darren Brown can manipulate your perception of reality). The truth is on this one guys is that it is a wonderful plant that grows to help your life be more healthy, pain free and magnificent. 
If you just go onto Wikipedia you will read how cannabis is anti-inflammatory (great for sufferers of arthritis and multiple sclerosis), a muscle relaxant (great for sufferers of multiple sclerosis), an anxiolytic (great for chronic sufferers of anxiety and and panic attacks), an anti convulsant (great for sufferers of epilepsy), increases appetite (great for sufferers of HIV and aids and anorexia), pro apoptosis (preventing cancer and helping remove it), anti Alzheimer's and anti dementia, helps with insomnia and bad sleeps.
A lot of people suffer from chronic stress because of their environment, pace of life and way of life, this influences the immune system to attack itself (a warning system of of the body like pain), cannabinoids instantaneously actively works to do the opposite of this bringing the person to a relaxed state of being so that the immune system works with the body again.
Cannabinoids also helps in the formation of neurones and neurone networks.
Cannabis is also really good for the skin when applied topically, we have seen a huge boom in holistic products since this recognition in the field of dermatology.
Cannabis has 85 unique cannabinoids in the cannabis plant that all have a unique effect on the endocannabinoid system, all helping the functioning of many different physiological processes from eye sight and hearing to homeostatis and immunity (nervous and blood). The echinacea plant has 25 different cannabinoids in it, and it is regularly used all over the world as a herbal remedy.
Because of this thousand if not million year old innate relationship that the cannabis plant has with us it has come as a shock to humanity to find itself in disconnection with it during this current phase of its experience.
There will always be demand for it because there will always be people who appreciate and respect the magnificence of this plant and how greatly it can help support our daily lives.
Let's heal humanity back to a respectable state.
