Pot Map of London

One of the greenest cities in the world is a lot greener than we thought, as a recent spate of police busts around the outskirts of London uncovered what can only be described as ‘buttloads of ganj farms’. Want a heads up on London’s worst weed hotspot? Roll up for our guide to the cannabis capital.

1. Harrow
Thermal images from aerial drones revealed five separate cannabis farms last week. North-west London’s economy really has gone to pot.

2. Redbridge
Police are still hunting for the green-fingered criminals behind a weed factory found in Snaresbrook. Where’s a decent grass when you need one?

3. Essex
Six men are set to appear in court charged with growing 800 cannabis plants in Ongar. Shortly to be renamed ‘Cheech and Chongar’.

4. Hanworth
A man was arrested at the end of February after his 50-plant cannabis factory was busted by police. What a dope.

5. Beckenham
The rozzers had to cart away 400 cannabis plants after a raid on March 21. Sounds like a recipe for chronic back pain.
