He added that the suspect had sourced the seeds of the plant from various sources in Kuala Lumpur, and had eight dogs guarding the property. The case is considered the largest seizure of cannabis trees in the country’s narcotics history, with previous seizures involving only cannabis trees grown in pots, according to Ramli.
