Police say former Cold Storage warehouse used for £4 MILLION cannabis factory, is the ‘Biggest in 30 years’
Big Money in Scunny
Police have described it as one of the biggest in 30 years. A £4m factory set-up Pablo Escobar himself would be proud of.
The discovery was made in a commercial area of Scunthorpe. 15,000 high potency cannabis plants set for UK streets.
“It is certainly the biggest drugs operation in this area in 30 years of working; we have never seen a factory this big.”
Known for steel rather than global scale cannabis op’s. The sleepy yet endearing town woke to the revelations Wednesday.
Authorities arrested three people found at the scene. It is believed a far bigger operation or criminal gang is behind it.
Handy for Munchies
The former cold storage facility turned global weed warehouse. Previously stored choccy bars, popcorn and ice cream.
One might say all the ingredients for a high stoner pie. Yet sadly for the weed workers there wasn’t a tub of Nutella in sight.
“Logistically, it will be a challenge as a force as it will take a lot to dismantle. However, at this point we are recovering the forensics and will carry out investigations accordingly and thoroughly look into and identify who is responsible for the set-up of this operation”
Designed for storing food at very low temperatures. The climate-controlled factory was a perfect cover for heat helicopters.
It is currently unknown who actually owns the property. To have no idea what was going on would be a hard one to believe.
The Real Cost
On a serious note, the three workers arrested were of Vietnamese descent. Possibly victims of human trafficking gangs.
Modern-day slaves who are put to work in such factories. It is unlikely they would even know the people above them.
“Unfortunately, this is not uncommon Vietnamese men come to the country and are promised one thing and they get here and are forced into slave labour”
Gangs who run and operate these factories are typically international. Huge drug cartels who are always dodging the law.
The money generated by these facilities goes directly to illegal activities. From gun and people trafficking to terrorism.
Two words, legalisation and regulation of cannabis. While not the most popular idea known to man or older folks.
It makes sense, & the government is to be persuaded. By a cannabis activist appointed as an advisor by the prime minister.
“Blair Gibbs worked as the PM’s policing aide when he was Mayor of London – and joins from the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis campaign group”
In a world of cannabis in licensed pharmacies. Grown by licensed & regulated farmers providing consistency and safety.
Then the price of cannabis could be dropped to way below the profitable margin. To perhaps £10 for what is usually £40.
That would stop international gangs using our old warehouses & slave labour. Because it would not make them any money.
Will Boris Legalise?!
Over in the states, some commentators have said Trump may go for cannabis legalisation. To win his 2020 election bid.
Perhaps Boris will take the same stance as his orange compadre. The tories have always struggled to win the youth vote!
But could this be the man to fully legalise cannabis? Who knows what he will do, but all the signs are looking good.
Many say such a move could even save the NHS with the revenue generated.
Interesting to see where the millions made from drugs starts life. Scary however, is the thought of where that money goes.
Legalisation could remove a lot this gang activity from our towns. But for now, stay safe and stick to the legal stuff.
