Seems the PSNI dont know how much they seized. One says over one million then they later say they have taken 1 million off the streets. Then the PSNI chap with the bum fluff beard and tash says "We are glad to have prevented these drugs reaching the streets and to essentially have taken 1million from the hands of organised criminals who profit from the misery of others."

So what other drugs did they seize as it was only cannabis in the article.

1million, a nice sound to it, it's what the Peelers estimate the Street value ( in other words, they guess ) is, no matter what the Street value is, glad to get it off our Streets.

Justice for all the innocent/ unarmed People who were
Gunned down by the British Soldiers,
For no other reason then their religion,were murdered.

Doesn't matter what drugs they were or what the value was. Good news is they are off the streets.

The value of the seizure is almost secondary.

Most people know that the cops always price a seizure on it's street value, not on what the dealer buys it for or what it's worth at production level.

'We are glad to have prevented these drugs reaching the streets and to essentially have taken 1million from the hands of organised criminals who profit from the misery of others."

There is a much more simple and effective way of taking profits out of the hands of criminal gangs, which is to legalise it and to use the money raised for detox, rehab and hospitalisations, not to mention drug education and support facilities. How much longer will society sit back with folded arms whilst society burns ? That means burglary, armed robbery and murder in many cases, or something so seemingly insignificant as a stranger dying alone in a bin-chute covered in rain. Not to mention the exhorbitant costs involved in locking up those employed in the 'industry', border patrols etc. I don't personally hold out much hope that society will wake up to the truth in the next decade, maybe two, but it certainly will one day, once those who have never been exposed to drugs have passed away. When it happens, and it will, you can rest assured the days when we put drug profits into the hands of organised crime will well and truly be behind us. There is a very simple truth underlying this: the police are losing the war on an epic scale. They simply don't have the resources and they never will have the border resources to patrol a coastline the size of the British Isles or sufficient staff to police all airports. Nevermind the homegrown weed industry. Drug dealing is now a major industry in most British cities. It is estimated that you can order drugs, any drug, on a door to door delivery, quicker than a pizza. An industry which is worth over several billion pounds per annum and not a penny paid in tax.

I'm all for legalization. Don't think the Tories and there GW Pharma buddies would be ok with that but.

Hear hear, who cares indeed ?  The important thing is that this gateway drug is kept of the streets of Northern Ireland.  O0

Did the police seize alcohol?

Perhaps that's why,... and also because, as another poster has said,... the authorities are not only not able to stop its use, but are making the criminal situation and related drug use worse,... that California has legalised its personal production and use.

Indeed. Surely this is the most important point, keeping this filth off the streets. The PSNI need to be congratulated on this. Well done to the Police, hopefully they will enjoy even more success, in their fight against crime and these leeches who pray on society.  :)

But it does matter. And it will matter to the defense if the PSNI have botched the estimate which they clearly have done.

Have you got some kind of access to the Police files on this case that allows you to make the above comment ?

Why can't people just congratulate the PSNI, on a job well done and leave it at that ? It's what every reasonable law abiding citizen should do.  :)

No it doesn't matter. The drugs are off the streets . Whether the estimate is botched or not those drugs are not going back onto the streets.
That's a good result in my book.

The estimated street value released to the press has absolutely no bearing on the court case. What matters is the accurate weight and what type of drug it is. No doubt, the police will provide the accurate details to the court.

It has every bearing on the court case. So are you saying the PSNI lie to the press?

Yes it does matter. Either its a million pounds worth or it isn't and its drug not drugs. Or to be precise one illegal drug found in the cannabis plant which is THC. CBD is perfectly legal.
