marijuanaA MASSIVE purpose-built drug 'city' has been found in the Mexican desert.


Drug lords were growing marijuana crops worth £100 million and had built full facilities for staff working there.


The 300-acre plot is by far the biggest ever found in the country and could produce 109 tons of the drug.


Six people were arrested after the Mexican army swooped on the compound, which has accommodation for 60 workers and its own toilet block.


It is not known who ran the field 150 miles south of Tijuana but the notorious Sinaloa cartel has been expanding in the area since its leader escaped from prison ten years ago.

The raid was led by General Alfonso Duarte, who said: "It is the largest marijuana plantation in Mexican history."

Troops will burn the entire plot.
