California Pot Farm Bust Yields 7,000 Plants

Authorities in Northern California raided a large marijuana farm in western Marin County after deer hunters tipped them off to the operation.

Sheriff's Lt. Doug Pittman says authorities went to the grow site Tuesday and seized more than 7,000 mature pot plants, worth an estimated $18 million.

The Marin Independent Journal reports that the site was on private property near Hicks Mountain and included a campsite for two to three people.

Sheriff's officials say no one was found at the pot farm, and the property owner is not suspected of any wrongdoing.
