A town in the UK has so many cannabis farms that they’re causing power cuts. Drug dealers in the north of England have been rinsing the area’s electricity supply as they rake in millions.
Police have recently been cracking down on criminals, shutting down 61 cannabis farms and seizing 6,797 plants with a street value of £6.8million in Rotherham since October last year.
Local residents have spoken out about the stress of constantly going without power. “It was every day. You couldn’t do anything, just wait for them until they turn it back on. But I’m not going to report it because I’m not a snitch.’’
