Massive Crop of Marijuana Found in Texas
A group of Madisonville-area deer hunters were in the woods setting up deer blinds when they stumbled upon over 18,000 marijuana plants. Everything’s bigger in Texas!
According to the story on WFAA-TV, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office confiscated 18,400 marijuana plants along with fertilizer, irrigation equipment and a campsite found at the land, which police estimated was being used to harvest marijuana for at least three years.
The value of the crop was estimated at $9 million. Whoa!
The report says no one has been arrested yet, but investigators believe the crop is being run by Mexican drug cartels.
