Around 100 huge cannabis plants have been dug up and removed from the grounds of an addiction clinic in Neuss, near Düsseldorf.

Police spokesman Willi Arnold told the Express newspaper, “It concerned a plantation which was hidden in the clinic grounds, along a wall. The two-metre plants will now be examined and then destroyed.”

Whoever it was who was hoping to grow their own smoke in this way will be sorely disappointed – the plants were nearly ready for harvest and already smelled strongly of cannabis, the paper reported.

“Perhaps someone wanted to take care of their own needs, or thought the spot would be particularly unsuspicious,” a worker at the St Alexius drug addiction clinic told the paper.
