A total of 61 people were searched and two people were arrested for drug offences.

Wandsworth Guardian:

Four people were given cannabis warnings, one person was given a penalty notice for cannabis use and two people received fines for dodging train fares.

Wandsworth Guardian:

Dog enforcement officers prosecuted three dog owners for breaking bye laws.

Wandsworth Guardian:

Vehicle stops took place in Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Road, in Battersea, seizing two cars for no insurance, while another driver was arrested for fraud offences.

Two further arrests for common assault and public order offences were made on the estate.

Love the use of that word 'factory' - was it a fully equipped manufacturing plant with giant smokestacks and hundreds of employees working conveyor belts?

I suspect not - more likely a room in some bloke's house, like it always is.

Still, good of the police to big themselves up like this. Next time I suggest they call it a cannabis "warehouse", "superstore" or "industrial estate" just to make their happenstance findings sound even more grandiose.

Another pathetic waste of police time and taxpayer money. Study after study has confirmed cannabis to be far safer for adult consumption than both alcohol and tobacco. The sooner a policy of legal regulation is implemented in regards to cannabis the better. A legal scheme would create thousands of taxable jobs, helping to massively boost our economy. It would also mean people who use cannabis for medicine would be given the help and support the need, rather than being treated like common criminals.

Stoners are unlikely to pay tax on their weed, when they can get it from a dealer tax free and probably cheaper
