Followup: Jamie Waylett Admits to Cannabis Possession Charge

A followup today regarding the case involving actor Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe) and his arrest involving possession of an illegal substance. Appearing at the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, England, the Telegraph reports Jamie plead guilty to growing ten Cannabis plants at his mothers home in England.  Readers will recall that Jamie (19) and a friend John Innis (20) were both arrested a few months ago after a police search of a friends car found eight bags of Cannabis and a knife. Later searches of their residences produced the plants at the Waylett home and three additional bags belonging to Innis. The paper states of the events today in court:

Innis admitted possession of a knife and having 11 bags of cannabis. Adjourning the hearing until July 21, chief magistrate Timothy Workman said: "Clearly the possession of cannabis is a serious matter and indeed the possession of knives is serious as well. "At the moment I'm not giving you any promises as to how the court will deal with this case."

Defending, Cheryl Rudden said Waylett had been videoing the road side for a music compilation when he caught the attention of officers. The court heard police found shots of the cannabis plants that the star had been growing on the same camera. This led them to search the men's homes. Ms Rudden told the court: "There are possibly issues as to his future in his field so far."

This is just a terrible situation and I’m very sorry for it.

I’d be very surprised if quite a few of the Harry Potter cast hadn’t dabbled in illegal drugs, especially the adult actors. He is quite stupid to do have grown Cannabis, yes, but I hardly think his being part of the final film will effect any child’s perception of him. If they even know about this surely how Crabbe ends up will discourage them following in his footsteps. I’m just saying…

That’s awful. Stupid boys - honestly Jamie Waylett has put his whole career in danger for drugs.

Crazy how they will through it all away. :(

I’m pretty sure this guy isn’t going to be in another film again, especially harry potter. It’s too bad, especially because his character dies and they should have that in the movie.

Wow, at what point did marijuana become a dangerous, life-ruining monster? He wasn’t smoking crack or getting drunk, he just had some pot plants.

I wonder if they will leave him out of the DH films because of this?

Consider, if the cannabis flower were legal, then this story would have been neither news nor ‘influence’. Instead, the prohibitionists have netted a grand warlock in their witch hunt, and the media is all over it. Had Mr. Walett been wasting himself with alcohol, you lot would ignore the matter entirely!

Nice to see so many of you flushing this human being down the toilet for growing FLOWERS. A fine lesson you lot are teaching ‘the children’.

What Nature hath given, you deem fit to annihilate – regardless that it may well hold the cure to cancer, is a fine remedy for many diseases, and is so non-toxic as to have never resulted in a death and has been used by mankind throughout recorded history (and that’s a mighty long time).
