True Bosses of Cannabis Are 'Untouchable' in Albania

"Cannabis explosion in the election year is a tradition already known to be used as a means of profit by criminal groups that take over the electoral control of certain constituencies," President Ilir Meta wrote in a post on FB on Thursday.
According to him, this practice is also a tool of blackmail against many farmers who in the absence of state support for agricultural, livestock, agribusiness and agro-tourism activities are forced to become workers of these criminal groups.
Meta stresses that the real bosses of drugs affair are untouchable.
"Real bosses are never touched, but often to produce fictitious statistics, elderly women and men are arrested as a structured criminal group," the President says in his comment./
