Staff at a newly established cannabis farm on Guernsey went beyond the usual searchlights, razor wire and attack dogs and planted landmines around it as protection against thieves.
Tom Le Moignan, the farm’s manager, commented, “We can’t take chances with our new crop.” The endeavour was “very expensive”, but Le Moignan believes the cost will be covered once products have been sold. He added, “No-one’s every grown cannabis in Guernsey before, but we’re sure it’ll take.”
But what will the neighbours say?
Neighbours have expressed concern. One, Sally Le Poidevin, remarked that the landmines are “very loud”, and one had exploded when they were planted: “It shook the whole house and some debris landed on my freesias.”
