Federal Police found a greenhouse full of genetically modified cannabis in the municipality of Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, Jalisco, arresting 25 people.

According to the Federal Police, 22 Colombians are among the detainees, one of them in charge of cloning the plants.

The plants were grown in two buildings with an area of 12,900 square feet each, and a third one of almost 19,400 square feet.

The Colombians were recruited via email and put under the charge of a person who would feed them and pick up the grown plants.
