The Drug Law Enforcement Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service has recently uncovered hundreds of acres of farmland dedicated to the cultivation of plants suspected to be Indian Hemp.
The enclave, which is located behind the Tome Mountain at Peki in the South Dayi District of the Volta Region, was discovered following police intelligence on the illegal cultivation of the plant which now requires legal documentation to cultivate for industrial and pharmaceutical purposes in Ghana.
A visit to the site revealed hundreds of farmlands dedicated to the cultivation of the substance as far as the eyes can see; right from the slope of the chain mountain into the valleys and the vast land all around. The many farms which were for different owners had hamlets and had maize farms as boundaries differentiating one farm from the other.
The operation, which was led by the Drug Law Enforcement Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) with support from the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Unit from the Volta Police Command and the Peki Divisional Police Command, lasted an entire day.
