police have uprooted eight plants believed to be marijuana from a farm in Bua.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro yesterday said the drug unit in the Northern Division received information and recently raided the farm in Waibogi.

"The height of the plants range from 17cm to 65cm," she said.

"The plants have been seized and kept at the Lekutu Police Station.

"It will soon be sent to Suva for analysis. Right now, investigations into the matter continues."

Ms Naisoro said drug cultivation was illegal and those found guilty of the activity would face the full brunt of the law.

"We are reiterating the need for people not to engage in such activity because it is against the law," she said.
