A house suspected of being used for drug production has been found just three miles away from a recently discovered £1 million cannabis farm.

Sussex Police officers raided a terraced house in Andros Close, South Chailey, at just before 10am today and discovered nine growing cannabis plants as well as cannabis ready for use.

A 60-year old man was arrested on suspicion of cannabis production.

The find comes in the same week that officers discovered more than 1000 plants at Warrenorth Farm off the A275 East Grinstead Road in North Chailey on Wednesday but police say the two finds are not connected.

We'll look back in years to come and wonder at how stupid today's drug laws are. Legalise them, regulate them, tax them, hobble the criminal gangs and bring a huge boost to the country's faltering economy, whilst simultaneously treating addiction as the disease it is rather than a crime. And thus free the police to concentrate on real crime (such as improving the scandalously low conviction figures for rape).

Nine plants? Not exactly Pablo Emilio Escobar is he? I can't even imagine this was a dealer. How much will Sussex Police value this latest 'haul' at?

Totally agree apart from that addiction is never a disease, it's a choice. If it was a disease, it couldn't be 'cured' by talking therapies or religious cults like AA or NA.

Well Harry, when you're down on life with a psychological disorder, don't complain when I come kicking you in the head with my ill-founded ideas then...

Sorry, are you saying addiction is a disease then? Perhaps you could explain exactly how? Also, where in the DSM is addiction specifically categorised as a psychological disorder? To tell 'addicts' they have a disease is to take away the personal responsibility from their poor choices. I may have a psychological disorder but addiction won't be it. Which 'ill-founded ideas' camp (your words) do you hail from? The ex addict talk therapists or religious salvationists?
