The Police has arrested a 77-year-old man who allegedly owned a two-acre marijuana farm in the Bono East region.
The suspect, Opanin Kwadwo Sampene, was cultivating the marijuana farm at Mem, a suburb of Atebeubu.
A team of officers, led by District Commander Chief Supt. Bright Boafo, stormed the farm to arrest the suspect following a tip-off.

He explained that he has been smoking marijuana for sixty years and began selling the drug at a very tender age.
The suspect is currently in Police custody, while the weed farm has been set ablaze by the Police.
