Trying to get your average Joe creationist to understand the phrase scientific theory is as hard as getting a fish to enjoy mountaineering. Its an unimagined world for them - it requires a complete reversal of their normal modes of thinking and being. The fact that humans could explain the complexities of this world without a creating God is a world view they cannot grasp. It's like asking a tuna if it appreciates the view from the top of Mount Everest. Bunc

Strathclyde Cannabis factory raids

Cannabis factories have been raided in the Strathclyde area of Scotland. More than 2,000 plants with an estimated street value of £630,000 have been seized from high houses in Airdrie, Robroyston, Cambuslang, Clydebank, Battlefield and Budhill, in Glasgow.
Strathclyde Police have reported that seven cannabis cultivations in houses have been discovered following appeals last month for the public to look out for suspicious activity and the smell of cannabis.
Police advised that suspicious signs would include windows permanently covered from the inside, visits at unusual times of the day or night and people not living in the premises and only visiting. They suggest that cannabis or used fertiliser would often be removed in bin bags or laundry bags and compost bags or gardening equipment might be left outside. Often there may be a pungent smell

Det Ch Supt Stephen Whitelock, director of intelligence for Strathclyde Police said cannabis cultivation was not a victimless crime and there was a high risk of fire to nearby homes. He said the Police had identified cannabis factories in many areas throughout the force area, often in "high value" houses in residential areas.
"The criminals who engage in this type of crime will rent properties in any area and it is our aim to disrupt and dismantle them."
The latest finds are part of Operation League, which aims to target Cannabis production.

Hi Bill,
Morocco has been notorious for producing drugs. It has been until recently classified among the biggest suppliers of cannabis. But now efforts are being made to eradicate this plague.

Hi Abdelilah,
I read the BBC link that you posted. Interesting that when I was young my recollection is that much of the cannabis in this country was referred to as "Rocky" - which was a reference to the fact that it was of moroccan origin. These days it seems that this is much less common here. The latest media frenzy here is about " skunk" and the concern has been about how strong this is compared to "normal" cannabis. Just today a young boy in the UK was sentenced to a minimum of 18 years in jail for the murder of two other boys while he was "high".
