In most countries in the world, if you asked the local authorities for permission to grow 850 cannabis plants in a residential area of the capital city, you would probably end up in trouble.

But in Chile, the state has just agreed to such a project.

The cannabis is being planted in La Florida, a district of Santiago.

It will be harvested next April and turned into an oil which will be used as a painkiller for 200 cancer patients.
