2600 Kg of Cannabis Plants Found by the Police in South-West Bulgaria

Bulgarian police officers confiscated a large quantity of cannabis during a raid in the Sandanski-Petrich area. After a helicopter sweep, the authorities found three hemp fields with varying workloads.

52 plants weighing 108 kg were found near the area of Keshina village. 56 plants weighing 392 kg were located in the nearby Damyanitsa village. The largest load was found near the village of Bozhdovo – 283 plants weighing 2100 kg. All plants reacted positively to a cannabis field test. The persecutor's office in Sandanski has opened a case. There are no announcements of arrests.

Last week, the Macedonian authorities arrested a 67-year-old man who ran a hemp field. The favorable climate of Southern Europe has made Greece move towards the legalization of marijuana production, which is expected to bring billions to the local economy. Still, marijuana is an illegal drug in Bulgaria and there are no moves towards its legalization.
