‘I want to produce the world’s best cannabis’ – BBC News
In the blistering heat of the Coachella desert, armed security guards ensure there are no unwanted visitors at a gated industrial complex.
The smell is a giveaway before you step inside the nondescript buildings.
With dozens of fans whirring, and under bright lights, Lars Havens shows us thousands of cannabis plants being cultivated by his company, Del-Gro.
Most of the seven-acre (2.8ha) site is still being developed but several rooms are already operational.
Lars has been a nurse, a professional rugby player, mixed martial arts fighter, and a bar manager.
Now he’s hoping to capitalise on the world’s biggest legal marijuana industry.
