Regina v Dang (Manh Toan) and others; [2014] EWCA Crim 348;   [2014] WLR (D)  118

‘For a defendant to be guilty of conspiring, contrary to the section 1 of the Criminal Law Act 1977, “to be concerned” in the production of a controlled drug, contrary to section 4(1)(b) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, by supplying equipment to assist others to produce the drug, he had to share in the drug producer’s purpose and had to lend his assistance for that purpose. A generalised awareness that the equipment might be used for the unlawful purpose would not suffice.’
