Two people, including Mr. A, turned their house into a hemp plant to avoid people’s eyes.

Hemp cultivation uses a hydroponics equipment that quickly germinates and grows seeds with sap mixed with nutrients.

Hemp, which took a year to grow to full growth, was quickly grown in 3 months by using lighting and a hot air heater to accelerate growth.

The police believe that they may have attempted to distribute and produce 300 cannabis stocks for one year and five months from February last year using this method.
