That is an absolute joke and a waste of tax payers money, there is no way that is £100k worth and as Phil says they are no way in hell near harvest! Its about to be legalized in Ireland! Should be tackling under aged drinking in Status but police promote that!

It's not really clear if they got plants or actual cannabis. The plants in the picture above look to be a long way from harvest. Dunno how they can come up with 100k. Jokers!
