Commander of Kodim 0102/Pidie Lieutenant Col. Abd Jamal Husin confirmed that the farm had been found on Saturday, September 3, on a hill between Kebun Nilam and Ulee Gunong villages in Tangse subdistrict.

“Information about the two-hectare cannabis farm was sent by members of the public who were looking to get fibers from palm trees within the forest area,” Husin said on Sunday, as reported by Antara.

According to him, the team had to reach the location on foot by passing through hills and steep valleys.

Upon reaching the farm, military personnel found dozens of cannabis trees that were estimated to be five months old and were about two-meter high.

The deployed team immediately destroyed the farm by pulling out the trees and burning them.

“Farm owner likely knew our movement towards the location, and we failed to find them at location,” the statement said.
