Cannabis equipment aids schools and gardeners

cannabis webRather than destroy all the gardening equipment used by cannabis growers, police in Rossendale decided to offer it to local schools and gardening groups.

They used Rossendale-based charity REAL to source appropriate people to benefit from the equipment and Catherine Smyth Media, as the PR provider for REAL, was asked to write a story and take a photograph to promote the initiative.
