What happens if they were planted by an illegal alien?

35,000 plants. And the neighbors could not smell the sweet sweet sticky? Sounds like the community approved of the farm.

Was it planted or was it growing wild? Marijuana is a natural plant that exists in nature. Why is it illegal? Big business interests had it declared illegal to protect their interests as it became competitive with alcohol back in prohibition, plus, Mr. Hearst feared the use of Hemp in making paper and he owned a lot of forests that provided his paper. It is time to make MJ legal and put the police, especially Sheriff's Departments to use enforcing laws that involve violence, theft, fraud, child endangerment, domestic situations, and Drunk Drivers! It has been reported that MJ is the number one cash crop in NC, if that is so, look at all the tax money and jobs that are not being benefited from, stupid move, keeping MJ illegal. The "war" on drugs, especially, hasn't worked, won't work and has only generated industries like the law enforcement/industrial complex that eats more and more tax dollars for military equipment to outfit "SWAT" teams with fully automatic weapons and military equipment. Are they expecting a Division of MJ users to attack a city? They would most likely stand around and laugh/joke at the guys in the funny uniforms.

Hmmmmm,$84 million for 35,000 plants, that comes to $2,400 per plant! Who comes up with these figures? If they are worth that much, we need to be planting and farming and selling commercially, legally! How many plants to the acre? 20,000? Easy to grow, easy to harvest, easy to sell, don't even need distilleries or bottling plants!
