The justification – “I grow marijuana for my son, who is a big consumer. So I avoid him buying it from dangerous people.” With these words a man from Terni tried to justify to the carabinieri the presence, in his cellar, of numerous marijuana plants hung for drying and other substances already packaged in glass jars.
But that is not all. Because in the garden, there was also an Indian hemp plant – a remnant of summer cultivation – about two meters high. The man then had a precision slingbar , a vacuum machine and a scale , used, according to the carabinieri, for the packaging of the drug in doses and subsequent sale.
The investigation – The man had been identified by the soldiers of the Terni station at the end of an investigation aimed at verifying the presence of marijuana crops in the countryside around the capital. The carabinieri then proceeded to search the house.
