Cannabis is otherwise known as “weed”…but what a recent cannabis discovery by police in London is a FOREST – Forest of weed!
More than 150 plants, some of which are over 5ft in height, were found on an area of disused land the size of a football pitch in Kingston.
A member of the public called police to complain about the ‘forest; on Lower Marsh Lane. Arriving officers described the plot as a ‘a small forest of Christmas trees complete with a gazebo.’
‘Whoever set this up used a really remote spot – the only way to get there was a 20-minute walk through wasteland,’ PC Sarah Henderson told the BBC.
‘But all their time, trouble and gardening skills will go unrewarded, as the whole lot will now be destroyed by police.’
No arrests have yet been made.
