285 Pot Plants Seized This Week

Words by Catharine Fulton
Capital area police have seized 285 cannabis plants this week, with 160 of the plants being taken from a home in east Reykjavík and the remaining 125 confiscated from a home in Kópavogur, RÚV reports.

In Reykjavík a man in his 30’s was arrested for taking part in the plant cultivation, which was in a house being used solely for growing the illegal greenery. A man in his 40s was arrested in Kópavogur for the operation he was running, which police believe to be quite an expensive undertaking based on his set-up.

It's a good week for the war on drugs, but a bad week for people on drugs.
