VIDEO: ISIS Targeting Pot Farms in North Syria

AKHTARIN, Syria (KRON) — It now appears ISIS, already fighting against Shiite militants and the governments of Iraq and Syria are joining another battle, the War on Marijuana.

A new video has emerged showing Islamic State fighters burning down cannabis fields in a northern Syrian town they recently captured.

Experts on the region say many farmers have turned to growing pot as a way to make money during the extended Syrian civil war. The owner of the farm shown in the video reportedly escaped across the border into Turkey.

ISIS leaders adopt a strict Islamic doctrine that forbids the use of alcohol, tobacco, and all drugs.
