44 grams of bud off the street..£440 The criminal underworld will be reeling from that blow. The total price of the operation to remove it probably cost double that it's self, targeting the very low end of the chain is a complete waste of money and now after the last 40 years of prohibition and profit targeting the very top of the supply chain is ineffective as well. It's time for a change in the law Licensed outlets would allow adults who wish to purchase Cannabis the opportunity to do so away from residential areas where some residents can feel intimidated through such activity while also bringing in a little tax revenue in the process.
