    If I got caught in the uk with say..........8 healthy plants, what would I get jail?big fine? comunity service???

    any ideas people:spew:

    probably a fine and community service,possibly a suspended sentence!if you can prove they were for percy!if old bill could prove intent to supply then maybe prison but it would depend on ya criminal record!

    what about if it was only 4 plants, would that make a difference?

    Basically it works on whether they can prove you are a commercial grower or a person who grows for personal use in relation to amount of plants you have.

    So lets look at it both ways, someone with 4 plants in a fairly modest grow could comfortable say, personal use given the amount of bud produced from 4 plant in 8 weeks, so lets break this down into what you could smoke on a daily basis, easy for a solicitor to argue on your behalf as personal smoke. smoked on a daily routine per 8 weeks etc. :blsmoke:

    Now someone with more than 8 plants etc makes you look, in most cases as more than a personal grower, given the possible yield and the plants you will have probably in veg which is then added on to your 8, :-|

    Now your looking exactly like a commercial grower and with serious difficulty to prove otherwise, on this amount of evidence the police would be able to put you in prison even on a first time offence.

    Less than 8 is safe......''

    More than 8 it's too late :mrgreen:

    skunkbudnice Well-Known Member

    kathleenbilly Well-Known Member

    Don't worry bud, 4 plants you would get a caution. :peace:

    But you should not be looking or thinking to get caught? :mrgreen:

    Enjoy your plants :blsmoke:

    I think it has way more to do with the money you have for a lawyer. A very good lawyer.

    i know someone who got caught with 29 plants in his attic, not sure how far along they where, im in scotland, all he got was a 450 pound fine and community service, not sure how many hours tho, there is not a set limit on what is personal use, as some one said before it all depends on your record and what you are found with, if you have scales and small bags lying about then that would make matters worse.

    i know some one who got busted didnt have any plants growing but was over 30 coco filled pots and a black carrier bag full of clippings and fan leaf and a bag of stems he said it was his first and only grow and that he wouldnt do it again he got a slap accross the wrists and sent home 2 hours later took his 3 400w hps and the pots and the bags of leaves and stems his nutrients and his mylar and his ph meter and that was all he heard from it that was just over 9 months ago

    How on earth did you get caught??? Have any advice on how to avoid this from happening to other people?


    just realized this thread is like 2 years old....

    JimmyTheJaw Active Member

    not sure exactly how the guy i know got caught, he's more a friend of a friend, i think he always had people at the door and going away for small amounts of time alot through the day, just stupid things i think but it all adds up, maybe they smelt it outside his house aswell, i cant say exactly
