Biggest-ever cannabis farm found in Murcia with 14,000 plants
Thursday, August 29, 2013 @ 2:55 PM

POLICE in the Murcia region have confiscated 14,000 cannabis shrubs in one illegal plantation – the highest-ever found in Spain in one place.

They found the hash 'allotment' in Esparragal, near Puerto Lumbreras, distributed between four huge greenhouses on a piece of land of around 5,000 square metres, which had been set up to look like a vegetable farm.

It had gone unnoticed for a considerable length of time because it was in an isolated rural area surrounded by numerous farms with greenhouses, but a burglary at a neighbouring plantation leading to the arrest of four known and regular criminals led to police uncovering the massive drug-dealing and production racket.
