Spanish police said they had seized 32 tonnes of packaged cannabis.
Police raided farms and production plants across Spain in an operation called Gardens. They arrested nine men and 11 women, who were aged between 20 and 59.
“The Civil Guard has seized the largest cache of packaged marijuana found so far,” Spain’s Civil Guard said. “It was equivalent to approximately 1.1m plants.”
Police said the gang dried the cannabis plants, packaged them and sent them to parts of Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
The gang were detained in Toledo, Ciudad Real, Valencia and Asturias last month but details of the operation were only made public on 5 November 2022.
In June 2022, the Spanish tax agency said, in reference to a different drug operation, that cannabis was worth “between 2,300 euros (£2,022) and 2,500 euros (£2,197) [a] kilogram”.
