Ethiopia Destroys over 7 Hectares of Cannabis Farms


The Ethiopian Federal Police Commission said it has destroyed more than seven hectares of cannabis farms in different parts of the country during the past Ethiopian fiscal year.

“More than seven hectares of cannabis farms were disposed of in the cities of Shashemene and the capital Addis Ababa,” state-run Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) quoted Mengisteab Beyene, Deputy Director of the Counter Narcotics Operation at the Ethiopian Federal Police Commission, as saying late on Friday.

Any form of use and possession of cannabis is illegal in the East African country, in which possession of cannabis can result in the offender getting up to 6 months of imprisonment.

Meanwhile, the Commission also on Friday disclosed the arrest of 80 individuals, who were said to be nationals of 17 countries, and were apprehended for suspected involvement in drug trafficking activities during the 2018-2019 Ethiopian fiscal year.
