FOREST COUNTY — Three people are in custody following a drug bust involving the seizure of more than 600 pounds of marijuana plants from a Forest County property.

Forest County Sheriff’s deputies say in the early morning hours of October 8th, a search warrant was executed on a large outdoor marijuana grow operation in the Town of Armstrong Creek after a concerned citizen alerted authorities.

Officials say they found marijuana, cocaine and other drug paraphernalia inside the residence on the property.

    The plants have lots of leaves and are quite tall – both indicative of either hemp or very low-grade pot.

    The weight of the large stalks and all the leaves of those plants is misleading. Also, cured weed loses about 80% of it’s weight compared to the same weed before it is properly cured.

    When is this country going to reverse the archaic laws against Marijuana? 3 people will now have their lives ruined by something that should not be considered a crime. Marijuana has medical benefits and from a recreational point of view it is less dangerous and damaging than alcohol. The fact that situations like this are still happening is nonsensical.
