Officers of Italy’s Financial Guard have busted a hemp operation near Rimini, a city on the Adriatic coast in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, seizing 23 lbs. of cannabis that eventually was tested to reveal THC content of 7.0%. Police said harvest at first appeared in compliance with Italy’s hemp laws, with papers describing it as an “agricultural product.” Testing showed otherwise. The raid garnered 19,000 buds, 27 marijuana plants and 4 gr. of hallucinogenic mushrooms, and included searches at the homes of two persons connected to the plantation.
