Police have arrested a man growing 1,200 cannabis plants in Eastern Thailand this morning. After a tip about the illegal marijuana plantation, police raided and uprooted the hundreds of cannabis plants, reporting that they weighed over 500 kilograms, according to Bangkok Post.

The marijuana was planted on land near the Pang Sida National Park, in Sa Kaeo. The farm covered around 6 rai of land, or about 2.4 acres.

Police arrested 46 year old Supachai Boonpro who had no ownership documents for the land. He told police that he doesn’t partake in the crop he was growing. Police gave the man a urine test and it came out clean.
