“Those marijuana plants, [the owner] planted them on his land as medication for his cattle. He planted only a small amount as he and his family did not understand the law,” district police chief Vorng Saveth said, adding that police confiscated a total of 67 marijuana plants.

The irony. More wanton destruction of the evil weed that must not be used for medicinal purposes due to the fact that some far off country declared a "war on drugs" many moons ago. And of course they know best. And they are changing their minds. But someone forgot to send a memo to village policemen in Cambodia.

More than 50 marijuana plants were destroyed on Saturday morning in Battambang province’s Sangker district by police, who said the owner also agreed never to grow the plant again.

Buth Vuthy, the chief of staff of Sangker district, told Khmer Times yesterday that police officials found 54 marijuana plants next to 44-year-old Moeun Vuthy’s house in O’Dambang 1 commune.
