Over 3000 Marijuana Plants Destroyed in Takeo Police Raids

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

They often "find" weed in Kirivong. It's right near the border with Vietnam, so I'm guessing it's easy to ship over.

Don't be fooled: cops likely know about the grow ops, but every now and then a sting will be made by either the same guys because of a lack of tea money, or a guy further up just to show that they're doing something. And no, Takeo isn't a hub for weed smokers...

At a guess: The right soil, good drainage, climate, and plenty of uninhabited areas. Never been to Kirivong, but from the photos you can see a lot of rocky hill country, not easy to access, and also no flooding since it drains off.

Personal opinion only.
Zero good grass is grown in the wet lowland or mountain areas of cambodia.
ie, Nowhere in any of the coastal provinces - and further north than that in most areas. I have never seen anything other than third grade, at best, grown anywhere in the south.

It is simply a matter of far too much humidity.
And the higher northern mountain areas are too damp also - with six months rain and all the vegetation, they just do not have the altitude to get a dry atmosphere - a crucial necessity for good quality weed.

The dry plains, or some of the small dry ranges, would be my first choice to grow. Probably in the central west or north west. Maybe a few select micro-climates elsewhere.
Maybe you could force a short crop in the middle of the "dry" in a wider range of locations.

But, sadly, never in the south - if you want good weed.
