Brighton) Nice try': Council hits out at fake 'cannabis zone' signs

Could be the same bunch that fed the homeless on Christmas day and hung out free scarves in the winter.

Nice to see a bit of activity.

Could be. I love Brighton - there are a lot of people who just talk the talk, I guess what is called 'virtue signaling' - something I've been accused of on the boards by people who clearly don't get me at all, I hate that shit, if I say something I fucking mean it, I don't say things to make people think better of me - shit, have you read the arse gravy I post ? lol (a mate of mine calls Brighton Be Right On  lol and that does sum up some people I know here), but there's more genuine political awareness and activity here than anywhere else I've ever lived :) Especially where I live, east Brighton. It's a good place :) (which is why I chose to live here, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else now :) ).

lol I had a smoke with some folks from UK420 years ago, they drove down and we sat off in the car having a spliff in this little layby, on the cliffs watching the sea. After a few spliffs we realised it was kinda the service road to Roedean, and there was a bin bag in the layby open at the top, inside was a massive root ball, twigs and trim from a grow :D Made all of us chuckle, the poshest school in the country (after Eton) with evidence of pot growing on the doorstep :)

On the rare occasions that I go out and walk around the urban areas here (I don't go out much, and when I do I generally head off up onto the Downs, to be alone, I don't like being around people) I always get a faint smell of herb on the air - sometimes it's someone smoking, sometimes it's a grow (idiots should get a decent filter), it's everywhere nowadays. Though I confess, a few days ago I ventured out shopping, came back and there was some little scrote standing outside where I live smoking a spliff, could smell it from the end of the road (smelled like nasty dealer weed). Told him to fuck off and smoke it somewhere else. Probably bad of me, but when I've got a tent full of plants I don't want some little shit smoking weed outside the house. Go smoke outside your own house, you dick, don't be bringing attention to where I live.

They should have been put on private property.
