Blackburn man learned to grow marijuana on Facebook Pot Farm

by | 7th, March 2012

MARK Anthony Barnes tells Blackburn Magistrates that he learned to grow and cultivate cannabis by playing Pot Farm on Facebook.

Facebook has rules against showing marijuana being used for trade and recreation.

But the Facebook founder have donated to the legalise marijuana drive

Facebook’s attitude to marijuana is every bit as confused as that of Western governments.

The Lancashire Telegraph says:

“Barnes was so successful at transferring virtual reality cultivation into the real thing that his first crop had a street value of nearly £7,000.”

Is this the Facebook business model?

Andrew Church-Taylor, defending, adds:

“There was so much he had actually destroyed some of the crop.”

Barnes pleaded guilty to producing cannabis. For his pains he was given a 26 weeks prison sentence suspended for 12 months, made subject to a 7pm to 7am curfew for 16 weeks and ordered to pay £85 costs.

A curfew? Why? Why keep the man who grows weed at home at home? The nonsense gets more nonsensical when we read:

Mr Church-Taylor said Barnes was a full-time carer for his wife and rarely went out of the house.

So. A curfew will teach him to obey the letter of the law on drugs – a letter than allowed puffing David Cameron to become Prime Minister.

The law on weed is so utterly pathetic, so weak and vindictive it could drive a man to drink (which is heavily taxed)…
