Police want you to recognise the smell of cannabis

People are being asked to use their nose to help police bust cannabis farms.

The charity, Crimestoppers, has produced a scratch and sniff card which carries the aroma of a cannabis farm.

The smell is different to cannabis when it's smoked. They hope people will recognise the smell of cannabis if it is growing near them and report it to police.
