Mexican soldiers discover 43-acre marijuana farm in north

The Mexican army says it found a 43-acre (17.4-hectare) marijuana farm in the northern border state of Chihuahua

While Mexico’s Supreme Court ordered the government in June to issue permits for the personal use of marijuana and for the growing of limited amounts of pot plants, growing on this large scale remains illegal.

Soldiers chopped down the tall marijuana plants and burned them, the army said.
