Vienna police say they have discovered a plantation with more than 700 marijuana plants at a warehouse close to a police dog center. Police say one of their dogs caught a whiff of the plants in the Austrian capital's Floridsdorf district on Friday morning. Officers then saw a man taking a hose into the warehouse and searched the premises, finding 734 cannabis plants.
