Richard Goldfrapp spoke about his encounter with the officers that came to inspect his home in 2021.

“They were very easy going and I was very easy going with them.

“They just came with a search warrant and searched. They couldn’t see any and they asked me if I had any and I said ‘yes, I do’ because I believe you should stand up for what you believe in.”

And, despite pleading guilty, he did not believe he had done anything wrong.

He said: “It’s not harming anybody else – what concern is it to them?

“I am not a criminal per se.

“I don’t see that I have committed any crime because I have not affected any person or property.

“It is a naturally growing herb, it is just that people have taken advantage of it because of certain properties to make money out of it.
“I never grew it for money, I never dealt it – it was just purely for my own use.

“A lot of it was for pain because a lot of prescription drugs which I have tried have side effects and don’t particularly work, especially if you suffer from depression.”

Though the pensioner does not want to break the law gain, he is now appealing for the legalization of the drug.

He said:“It should be legalised – but policed.”
