It’s like watching a Shane Meadows film in that, however much they make you laugh you know at some point it’s gonna get heavy and dark. Well, taking that analogy further, when I discovered there was a cannabis forest growing in London, I kind of knew I’d get hit with the sad news they’d be destroying it.
Scotland Yard found a forest of Cannabis plants, as big as a football pitch in Kingston. Apparently the plants were as big as Christmas trees and it came with a gazebo. Now, as much as I like to picture the idea of stumbling across this forest as though I’m Di Caprio circa The Beach (you had to take a twenty minute walk through wasteland just to find it) the English version of paradise (or as close as we might get) won’t be there for long.
Still, it’s a nice image to have, right? And it’s started me wondering if any more of these little rural Utopias are hidden away in good old Albion
