The anti-mafia police in Sofia have discovered a high-tech greenhouse for growing cannabis plants, BTA reported. A hydroponic system for growing 120 plants was built on the ground floor of a house in the centre of the capital. The room was thermally insulated and equipped with a ventilation system and sodium heating lamps. 

During the action, three paper envelopes containing about 500g of cleaned and dried cannabis inflorescences, as well as packets of cannabis seeds, liquid fertilizers, scales and chopped foliage were seized.
