    At the start of each programme, Rav Wilding shows a pitcure of PC George Dixon saluting and saying we have "moved on" from that.

    And what do we see? Cannabis Farms, massive anti-social behaviour, total disrespect for police officers, officers having to dress like something from Judge Dredd.

    Moved on? I think not. We have taken a massive leap backwards towards barbarism.

    I also have been watching this. Perhaps he means we have moved on from our vision of PC Dixon in the simple uniform of the day with perhaps strong boots and who probably just carries a torch compared to the amount of "stuff" our police carry nowadays. Todays viewing of the 2M"s worth of fully grown cannabis confiscated, couldnt that have been put to better use, at least the growing equipment was given to the nearby school

    It struck me today they seem to feature cannibas farms every day, and every police officer seems to be able to smell it from a distance.

    Thought I had better find out more about growing it legally for retail use. Wiki says low potency can be grown for use as industrial Hemp....clothing and paper ! Always think it would be a nice house plant !

    I believe the Company has since gone out of business
