A MAN has appeared in court charged with cultivating 455 cannabis plants at a home in Newbury.

Anh Duc Ngyen, who is of no fixed address, appeared before Reading magistrates on Thursday last week, accused of producing the Class B controlled drug at 15 Harvest Green on November 29.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction and the 35-year-old, who was represented by Adonis Daniel, was remanded in custody to Reading Crown Court where he will be sentenced at a date to be fixed.

    When will the gov come to it's senses over this?? As I've said before and will continue to say, the burden of proof is in the hands of the law makers to justify the continued illegality of a plant that helps so many medically and is enjoyed in a recreational fashion by MILLIONS, for thousands of years. You let people poison their bodies with alcohol and tobacco, yet deny the evidence that Marijuana has proven health and social benefits. Legalise, Tax, Regulate, take this money out of the criminal side of society.
