25,000 adults and children are treated in hospital annually for the effects of 'super-skunk' Cannabis and it is estimated that 70,000 outpatient mental patients are also treated for the effects. Cannabis factories are multiplying in the UK. Houses are converted and ordinary terraced or semi-detached houses are bought or rented as a place to grow cannabis. They are kitted out with special hydroponic equipment, which allow the plants to grow without soil and with added nutrients. Up to £70,000-worth of cannabis can be produced every 11 or 12 weeks.
