DEA Agents Remove 41,000 Marijuana Plants From 40-Acre Site In San Diego County

The seizure, which took place at a place called Sunshine Summit, was the biggest marijuana seizure on private property in the county’s history. The DEA was assisted – that’s right, 35 well-trained adults weren’t enough to pull plants – by a multi-agency Narcotics Task Force. There were also two large water tanks, chemicals for fertilizer, and a 30-round magazine for a semiautomatic weapon found on the property.
It’s hard to fathom that the combined training of these individuals couldn’t be used toward better purposes. Why couldn’t they be used in investigations involving violent criminals; those who are a danger to society?
And how much money was wasted on this plant-pulling operation? Dozens of man hours and resources used to seek out and destroy medicine while many go without proper healthcare and real crime goes unnoticed.
When will the madness end?
