Polish 40 hectare field of hemp

Hemp not the smokable kind to the surprise of cops


Polish police have been guarding a 40 hectare field of hemp for about a month before it was established that it was an industrial variety and not cannabis used to manufacture marijuana. The owner of the plantation – established in northern Poland – had the permission of the province, which is necessary to grow industrial hemp. But rumours started to circulate that this may be cannabis, attracting both spectators and people eager to harvest it illegally.

It took us long to determine the type of the plant, because the hemp had to be dried at room temperature before tests could be made, regional local police spokeswoman Joanna Kowalik-Kosinska said.

If the field ever catches fire, let me know and I'll be right there.
