It makes me laugh when the authorities won't address these sort of issues.
Presumably you called them while "it was taking place" and they refused anyway (very bad when they refuse to attend a crime in progress).
1. Danger to person or property call 999
2. Anti social behaviour call 101
3. Noise call the council
If you know where the culprits live, pass the information on to the police. If they refuse to attend, keep records of the refusals and go to the IPCC.

Some kids threw a stone at our window & broke it (I heard them running away) I contacted the community police and reported it in case it had happened to anyone else. They sent a policeman round that evening who spoke to our neighbours. Nothing much to be done as we didn't see anyone, but impressed that they made the effort to call round. Have you tried calling them.

The police couldn't care less about illegal drugs treating them as if they weren't illegal - one only has to wander around brighton to see people smoking the stuff in broad daylight to see that in this country many drugs have been defacto decriminalised.
Another point is we no longer see actual policeman on foot or bicycle patrolling the streets which is a proven deterrent to these sorts of crimes instead they waft around in obnoxious cars and only attend crimes once they've been committed which is not the main point of a visible police force.

I don't think lewes actually has officers anymore, every time I've had dealings with them they come from other locations. Drugs that a different argument, I don't blame the police for not wanting to police cannabis, it should be taxed not policed. Criminal damage though should be a high priority, tax payers money pays their wages, tax payers money has to pay for the damaged caused, if the police can't even attend a crime in progress what is the point of them!

No choices it can result in awful life long mental illness for people which ruins not only their life but their families too. It is illegal for a reason and the only ones who stand to gain from it being legalised are big pharmaceutical corporations ready to get rich off peoples illness and addiction.

As opposed to the drug dealers, as it is at present? Prohibition isn't working, and has never worked historically. At least if it's legalised it can be taxed and the doses controlled.

Check your facts annoyed, the reason cannabis is illegal is because Egypt perceived hemp to be a threat to the cotton industry, take your choice they will smoke weed or drink alcohol, what do you prefer? Maybe if they taxed cannabis there would be the money for adequate policing. Also with regards mental health you're again talking rubbish, you have to have an existing mental illness, cannabis doesn't cause them and what do you honk alcohol does for mental illnesses, let's ban that too eh? - seriously you're a moron.

The facts are people smoke it, the police don't want to police it and it makes you less mindless than alcohol does. Read the thread above, the police don't give a toss, tax cannabis and invest in policing. Grow up!

Its staggering how some people are still buying into the propaganda about cannabis and think prohibition is somehow the correct course of action. There is absolutely no conclusive evidence that it gravely impacts users mental health, and yet there is study after study confirming the mental health risks of even moderate alcohol consumption. Nearly ALL studies that show some kind of tenuous link between cannabis use and impact on the brain and psychiatric disorders, the users are universally alcohol consumers.
Speaking as a moderate cannabis user (via vapourising the plant, so again, healthier than smoking it) who occasionally vapes during the evening, I have effectively given up drinking alcohol. As a result, I don't feel lethargic, parched or hungover in the mornings. I save heaps of money that would have been spent on alcohol, and the tax man is getting very little of this (which they could be if it were legalised). On the bright side, my health has improved, i've lost weight and I'm statistically far less likely to be admitted to A&E or suffer other illnesses which alcohol is linked to, including cancer - thus saving the NHS money in the long term. In fact, cannabis is proven to be enormously beneficial to human health in many areas, including in reducing cancer cell growth, an area of research many governments, including the US government, are now exploring its medicinal properties. I'm not calling for a ban on the physically addictive, anti-social behaviour promoting and harmful alcohol, I'm calling for the decriminalisation on one of the most benign and least addictive substances available. Its frankly insane how in 2016 some peoples heads are still exploding at the prospect of a multipurpose plant, with so many positive applications, thats helped humans for millennia being cultivated and sold legally alongside tobacco and alcohol, as if there was absolutely no hypocrisy with this mindset.
