A really funny video of a reporter trying to give the news on the burning of a marijuana plantation. As you can see, it's not easy at all!

And so, after weeks of painstakingly searching this rugged area the size of Wales, finally some kind of reward, 'cause behind me these soldiers gather and burn huge piles of coca leaves and marijuana.

Behind me, smoke, soldiers burning drugs... the... soldiers... behind me... behind me... soldiers... rugged soldiers the size of Wales...... burning drugs. Painstakingly!

Behind me, painstaking barons burningly drug soldiers in huge piles of Wale nets.
