Police sure know how to smoke marijuana.

About 15,000 pounds of marijuana went up in smoke in Jamaica.

The bonfire of the drugs, which were seized following raids on marijuana grow operations and drug trafficking operations, occurred on the Caribbean island.

Police said most of the marijuana was seized this year.

Authorities said they also destroyed about 75 pounds of hash oil during the burning operation on Saturday, in an undisclosed police location in the Kingston area.

Jamaica is the largest producer in the Caribbean and exporter of marijuana. The plants are mainly grown in the hillsides or hidden among other crops.
