The Islamic State militant group released a video (external - login to view) on Tuesday purporting to show its fighters burning down a marijuana field in a town it captured in north Syria.

In the clip, which appears to be shot in the town of Akhtarin and was uploaded to YouTube by an ISIS supporter on Tuesday, the fighters denounce the evils of drug-taking, before appearing to chop down bushes and setting them ablaze.

The militants claim they discovered the farm after having captured Akhtarin (external - login to view) from the Free Syrian Army, a rival group of opposition fighters in Syria, in recent weeks. The militants claim the farm owner fled over the nearby border with Turkey.

Syria Deeply (external - login to view) reported in July that some farmers in north Syria have turned to pot-growing in a desperate bid to make an income amidst Syria's devastating civil war.

But the farmers have come under threat from radical Islamist fighters, such as the militants of the Islamic State, who consider drugs against Islamic law.

The Islamic State group, earlier known as ISIS, is known to impose a harsh interpretation of Islamic law in areas under its control in Iraq and Syria, and has banned cigarettes, alcohol and drugs (external - login to view). A United Nations commission said on Wednesday (external - login to view) that the group's systematic abuse of civilians, including public executions and training child fighters, may amount to crimes against humanity.

Burn cannabis?

That's a crime against humanity for which those @#$#@ blasphemers need to be punished. Since Putin has been nominated for the task of stopping their progress let him deal with it.
Well then again, ISIS is just doing what Canada did in Afghanistan:

"A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," Hillier said dryly.

One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'."
Dang blasted @#$#@ Canadians destroying cannabis trees. God will punish.
