Recently one of my neighbours passed away sadly. She lived to over 90 and had a good innings, the last of her generation on my street, God Bless her soul.
Anyway, the police were round and they raised a question, what was that smell? It was such a strong smell and it was canabis.
All this time I thought I was living next to doping neighbours who constantly (I assumed) smoked the stuff, even though there was no sign of smoke, nor of people. I mean I would smell it in the morning when on my way to work, then in the evening when I returned, in the front garden, the back garden, it was like my house was encapsulated in the stuff. Maybe the house was built on an ancient canabis burial ground. Anyway, the police suggested somebody was growing the stuff, in a big way and it seems the air currents on the road draw all the smell to my house. The smell is so strong it is like walking into a kitchen where food is being cooked. It just hits you. I'm not sure on whether to hang around and take deeper breaths or to run inside the house before I become intoxicated somehow.
I'm counting down the days these dealers get closed down. Come on Met police, pull your finger out.
