Police find giant cannabis forest in London

By Owen Weldon     Sep 26, 2015 in Odd News
London - Police in the United Kingdom discovered more than 100 cannabis plants. The discovery was described as a giant cannabis forest.
Police officers came across 150 cannabis plants in Kingston upon Thames. The tall cannabis plants were found Thursday morning, according to Daily Mail. After officers found them, they uploaded images of cannabis on Twitter, and some of the plants were taller than six feet.
Officers described the cannabis farm as a forest that was larger than a soccer field. Police found out about the cannabis plants after a member of the public alerted them to it. The person spotted the cannabis plants on disused private land.  
Police appeared to be shocked at finding the cannabis forest. In one of the photos they shared, they said they were called up to a few plants, but instead of actually finding a few cannabis plants, they found a forest.
Another photo shared showed a photo of police officers at the scene, and they were standing near plants that were almost as tall as them.
A railway line, a river and a number of water treatment works are nearby where the marijuana was growing, and all of these elements helped conceal the operation from public view. 
The site was likely chosen not only because of its inaccessibility, but because of the smells that come from the sewage works. The smells helped to mask the smell of the marijuana.
Police said the cannabis forest was even complete with a gazebo. They added that officers had to walk 20 minutes through wasteland in order to reach the spot. Authorities plan on destroying the entire forest.
As of right now, police have made no arrests, but they are continuing to make inquiries.
