More than three cannabis farms are uncovered in Cornwall and Devon, every week.

Police found a 183 last year.

At the last report in 2009/2010, there were just 11.

That is the highest rise in the UK.

Force drugs intelligence officer Mike Bradley says, "The whole drug dealing issue is about somebody making a profit out of that. It's not just the money that's made, because obviously people need to buy the drugs so there's the crime links to that, but as well as the crime links we say drug dealing ruins lives.

"It's not just the people who are using the drug, we're after the people who are making the money, the people who are growing the drug, the people who are now producing quite a strong strain of cannabis and it's those people we are after".
