433 Pot Plants Pulled By Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Deputies

Thread starter #1
Pottawatomie County sheriff's deputies and local drug task force agents spent Friday pulling hundreds of marijuana plants, many of them nearly 9 feet tall from a rural property south of McLoud. All 433 plants were pulled and taken to a secure area where they were doused with diesel and destroyed, said Sheriff Mike Booth. Friday's action ended what had been a three-week investigation into the pot patch. Booth said a landowner preparing for the upcoming deer-hunting season was checking for deer activity on his 160-acre property when he found the suspicious plants.

The landowner notified deputies, Booth said, who then contacted members of the Pottawatomie County Drugs and Violent Crimes Task Force. The group began surveillance of the field to see if anyone showed up to cultivate the weed. Booth said after three weeks of seeing absolutely no activity, it was decided to conduct the massive eradication effort Friday morning. Crews were cautious for any possible booby traps and also remained vigilant for any possible threats as they worked that scene, the sheriff said. Booth said the marijuana pants were tightly compacted and growing in an area surrounded by trees.

"It's not something you would just stumble across," he said. The plants varied in size, but many of the mature plants were more than 8 feet tall, Booth said. Authorities took the plants to a gravel pit where they were burned, Booth said, adding Bethel Acres firefighters assisted deputies with those efforts. Booth said it's unknown if anyone was tending to the pot field recently, but the seeds that started the crop obviously didn't get there on their own. "Once upon a time they had something there," he said. Booth said the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics estimates that each one of the mature marijuana plants would have produced pot with a street value of $1,000. Booth said deputies would be watching the area, along with the landowner, who was glad to see the plants removed from his property, Booth said.

Perhaps this type of action will soon be obsolete in today's society. All the money spent trying to suppress MJ/MMJ is ridiculous to say the least. Wouldn't feeding our hungry/starved citizens or help providing shelter be a better option? Folks there is a reason why this continues to go on and on and on. MJ/MMJ is natures best medical treatment, its a threat to the pharmies and their trillion dollar profits. Just needed to update :)

Sad to see more meds be ruined by the ignorant.
 
^The pathetic part here is that a large # of people think BigPharma profits is what keeps cannabis illegal, but it's NOT -
here is my take: - When one learns the historical fact that the FIRST ban (law) against hemp was in Swaziland, in 1922, as an act of protectionism to support the cotton plantations of Egypt, one can see the true, evil purposes of colonialism/capitalism. The ban on hemp was introduced to Kanada in 1923, more than a decade sooner than in the USA!

Repeal of all restrictions against hemp agriculture OF ALL TYPES must be initiated.

The truth of the matter is simple: allowing production of medicinal, industrial, commercial and recreational hemp products will destroy large swaths of most of capitalism's favoured phony industries, starting with: big Oil, big Pharma, the AMA/CMA, big Agri, Monsanto, etc. ** Forestry, Construction, Clothing and many other industries would be affected as well -
that is the true reason that the lies were started about hemp after WW I and the real reason that perpetuating these controls, or legislating "regulations to control ... for ... protection...
...society ... child ... taxes .." is simply another set of LIES that will crumble in the floodlights of Truth that will, one day, catch all of "Society" in it's glare!

I doubt that ANY politician of any stripe (the only ones I've seen are yellow) will endorse this Truth! No politician would be permitted to discuss such a "ludicrous" concept - also, each and every politician who might be paying attention to reality knows we must keep our prisons full, train new criminals, keep the courts busy, generate more misery and continue to do the good work of the Big Banks!
