Criminals are using more inventive ways to conceal cannabis grows – not just in rooms, but in the back of shops and even underground.

Cannabis farms are very dangerous places and pose a serious risk of fire. Often the electricity meter has been bypassed and seriously overloaded electrical circuits run close to water-filled pipes. Plants grown upstairs in a building can also cause floorboards to rot, presenting the danger of collapse.

In addition it is also important to consider that sometimes the people working in the ‘farms’ are victims of human trafficking and working against their will.

Every cannabis farm we destroy helps prevent a vicious circle. The plants won’t end up as street deals, the profits won’t go on to fund other crime, and they won’t ruin lives or pollute our communities.
