The rise of cannabis farms in Switzerland
The cultivation, trade and consumption of high volumes of cannabis with more then 1% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a prosecutable offence in Switzerland.
Despite this, the federal police estimates that 75% of the cannabis is produced domestically. This is reflected in the fact that the number and size of indoor cannabis plantations are on the rise. In 2014 around 3,000 were discovered by federal police. Of these around 1,000 were highly organised ventures with more than 100 plants and professional equipment.
