Illegal cannabis production in West Bank rises as economy tanks

Drug raids in West Bank rise by 30 percent as struggling Palestinians turn to growing cannabis for Israeli market.

Palestinian police say illegal drug production is increasing across the occupied West Bank, much of it destined for use inside Israel.

As Palestinians face worsening economic conditions, more are turning to cultivating cannabis for some desperately needed cash.
