Marijuana in Pérez Zeledón goes up in smoke

“Smoke ’em if you find them” is the police rule on marijuana. And they did. Fuerza Pública torched a small plantation of the illegal weed in Pérez Zeledón Thursday afternoon.

That followed on the arrest of two men a day earlier near Parque Nacional Chirripó. Officers and environmental rangers were seeking illegal hunters when they found two men at different times. The men were in possession of bags of marijuana. One bag was 7.5 kilos and the other was 5.6 kilos. The men are facing court action

The plantation was in San Miguel, in the Pejibaye district, police said.
