Two men have been arrested following a police raid on a cannabis factory.

Sussex Police executed a misuse of drugs warrant on Wednesday in Hanson Road, Newhaven, and found 80 cannabis plants in various stages of growth together with cultivation equipment.

Two men from Newhaven aged 41 and 23 were arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and suspicion of possession of a suspected Class A drug.

They have been questioned and released on bail until 26 June.

Officers also seized cash from the address.

Isn't it about time they made weed legal, all the arguments for keeping it illegal are flawed, legalising it will give this country some much needed tax income, allow police to focus on real crime and stops innocent people from getting a criminal record for smoking a plant!!

No it is not time to legalise this. It causes mental health problems and some people to become murderers. Keep it illegal forever.

Cannabis prohibition simply isn't working. The smartest policy our government could implement in regards to cannabis is one of legal regulation. Under a legal scheme, thousands of taxable jobs would be created, giving our economy a much needed boost. It is time to stop arresting adults who choose to consume a product proven to be safer than both alcohol and tobacco.

while I realise you're probably a troll, I absolutely hate uneducated minds who see weed as the most evil drug ever.

Alcohol has killed hundreds and thousands of people since it was discovered. It's linked to liver cancer, depression, aggression, alcohol poisoning and causes a strain to emergency services with thousands of people out every weekend getting bladdered.

Nicotine is linked to lung, throat and mouth cancer, also has very addictive qualities, affects our air quality, will affect your teeth and also cause chemical imbalances in the brain.

Weed has been used for years as a way of easing patients symptoms while going through things like chemo. Weed has helped those suffering from violent twitches and ticks. Another product of weed is hemp, and that has an almost unlimited amount of uses.

Alcohol and nicotine kill people, weed is used in medical research to help people. So why is it the only one thats illegal?

Whilst I would not class Cannabis as the most "evil drug ever" it is dangerous to mental health to a minority of users (at least 8%) and affects many more (depression paranoia amongst others), why would you want it (cannabis)to available to a wider market?
The harms of Alcohol and Tobacco are far greater granted but why then add another psychoactive drug available to the general public?
Medicinal properties of cannabis are well known, and I am sure the Pharmaceuticals will produce them and market them, to be honest most people who mention this are just using this as an excuse to get stoned legally.
