Boy, the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Department has reached a new milestone when it comes to marijuana busts. They shut down hydroponic marijuana operations, hitting two houses and charging three men with engaging in organized criminal activity.
Their haul? One plant. Yep, that’s it in the picture.
Ah, but this is no ordinary plant.
The dried leaves produce a high dollar drug. “Street value would be around $6,000 an ounce,” explained [Sheriff Thomas] Kerss, who also invited in the DEA and Texas Rangers into the investigation.
$6,000 an ounce for dried leaves! Man, that’s some plant. That’s over $200 a gram. No wonder there was only one plant.
That Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office sure is on top of things, aren’t they?
