3 Tons of Poppy destroyed?! Some Baba is going to be angry that someone was messing with her garden~

Lutsk: Three tons of opium poppy straw destroyed

Meanwhile in Lutsk, police uncovered some three tons of poppy straw at a farm in that city.

According to estimates, the straw could have been used to make narcotics with a street value between five and six million hryvnia. That’s more than a million dollars. The opium poppy straw was found buried near a cow barn. There is one enterprise in Volyn oblast with a license to grow poppies. Instead of burning the straw, workers took the processed plants to a nearby farm and hid it. A criminal investigation has been launched. The company may lose its license to grow poppies.
