Yesterday, while serving a search warrant in the Blocksburg area on a parcel that did not have a state license or local permit to grow cannabis commercially, our Drug Enforcement Unit located over 2,000 cannabis plants growing through two layers of netting. By hand, eradicating these plants could have taken our deputies upwards of 6 hours. With our special equipment? Only a few minutes. – – – #NoPermitNoPlants #GetLegit #GetLegitorQuit #humboldtcounty #DEU #Cannabis #illegalcultivation #permitsrequired #sheriff #HumboldtCounty #Humboldt #HCSO #enforcement
