One of Mexico's largest-ever seizures of marijuana was torched by the army in El Rosario, Baja California on Friday. The massive haul went up in smoke three days after Mexican soldiers discovered a marijuana plantation covering almost 300 acres (120 hectares), the Defence Department said. The plantation is four times larger than the previous record discovery by authorities at a ranch in northern Chihuahua state in 1984. The pot plants sheltered under black screen-cloth in the Baja California desert, more than 150 miles (250 kilometres) south of Tijuana, across the border from San Diego.
