DAK NONG (VNS)— The Central Highlands Province's narcotics police force has uprooted 3,900 marijuana plants and 2,900 saplings from illegal farms since early this year, said senior Lieutenant Colonel Hoang Van Oach, deputy head of the province's narcotics force.

He said the police also destroyed hundreds of kilograms of the farms' marijuana.

People from other provinces had hired local farmers to plant the marijuana. However, many local farmers did not know what the plants were, Oach said.

The police asked the province's administration to promote marijuana awareness. — VNS
