Police destroy Preah Vihear marijuana farm

Preah Vihear provincial police on Monday arrested two men suspected of cultivating nearly 100 marijuana plants in the provincial capital.

The suspects, a 62-year-old farmer and a 70-year-old accomplice, were released after police questioned and educated them, and with their promise not to grow marijuana again.

“Even though the two men were aware of the illegality of their activities, the problem was small-scale, as they planted the marijuana on their own plot for private consumption,” said Kov Pesith, Kampon Bronak commune police chief, adding that police burned the 92 marijuana plants they had discovered.
