dope hyper inflation

Just over a year ago, I wrote about the wide variance in the value ascribed to cannabis plants during court proceedings. In the article the range of cited values was from £150 - 800 a plant.

So a piece in the Sheffield Star caught my eye as it highlighted that the values ascribed to cannabis had increased massively - with a meagre haul of five plants valued at £9050 - a staggering value of more than £1800 being ascribed to each plant.
It's just as well that the values placed on cannabis aren't included in the RPI because we'd then see inflation heading towards the 10% mark in no time.
