The post sparked a string of comments on the team's Facebook page about whether cannabis should be reclassified.

Officers responded by saying: "We see first hand the negative impact cannabis has on an individuals long term mental health and whilst some people clearly would rather we ignored this, cannabis is a class B controlled drug for a reason. 

"We will continue to tackle the possession, cultivation and supply of all forms of illegal/controlled drugs".

The team added: "Possession, cultivation and supply of a class B drug are 'real crimes' with numerous associated direct and indirect negative consequences and until someone decides otherwise.

"That's how it will be dealt with".
