Subj: Cannabis smokers arrested
Pub Date: 26 November 2001
Two Worthing men were among cannabis campaigners alleged to have lit up outside a police station.
Christopher Baldwin, 51, and Trevor Scott, 45, both of Carnegie Close, Worthing, were among 30 demonstrators who descended on Stockport police station in Greater Manchester to protest about a raid on Britain's first Dutch-style coffee shop.
Their protest was in support of veteran cannabis campaigner, Colin Davies, who was arrested during a raid at the Dutch Experience Cafe in Stockport.
A Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman said ten people were due to appear before Stockport magistrates tomorrow charged with drug-related offences.
Those arrested during the protest, staged shortly before 3pm on Saturday, are alleged to have smoked the drug outside the police station.
Baldwin and Scott were among a total of nine people charged with possession of cannabis.
