Mark's concern at increase in Cannabis farms

(March 05, 2012)

Mark has expressed his concern after the police raided 485 cannabis farms and seized more than £8 million of drugs across Lancashire in just over 12 months.

Officers unveiled the figures for the first time as part of a region - wide operation to clamp down on a worrying increase in cannabis farms.

Mark said: "The figures are quite staggering and I was not aware that they were finding plants in these farms at such a rate".

"It is something that certainly they have been quiet about. We hear about individual cases of farms being closed down but not on this scale. I am suprised and concerned."
