The Civil Guard in Spain arrested two cannabis growers the law agency says were growing illegal marijuana plants in facilities officially registered for industrial hemp. The two were arrested for a “crime against public health” after 64,800 plants the police claim were marijuana were found in the defendants’ facility in Almería in southeast Spain. The court has already sentenced one of the growers to jail time. Spain allows the cultivation of industrial hemp for fiber and seeds, and for scientific and medical research if authorized by the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products.
