You Think 300 Pot Plants is a lot…

Nearly 300 acres of marijuana was discovered under shade cloth in the desert south of Ensenada, Mexico. The cloth covered plants as tall as 7 feet and some were nearly ready to harvest. At about the size of 225 football fields, the plantation is believed to be the biggest ever found in Mexico. There were around 60 people tending the plants when they were discovered but most were able to flee.

According to the New York Times article, General Alfonso Duarte of the Mexican army said the crop “ould have yielded about 120 tons and was worth about $160 million.”
