FRESNO, Calif. - Federal and state agents have arrested 83 people accused of growing more than $1.2 billion worth of marijuana in a crackdown on illegal pot gardens in California's Sierra Nevada range.

Local officials said several Mexican marijuana-growing cartels helped set up the grow sites scattered throughout rocky mountainsides of eastern Fresno County, and they warned that more arrests were likely as the sweep continues.

More than 318,000 marijuana plants were destroyed in the operation, which also netted nearly $41,000 in cash, 25 weapons and two vehicles, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said Thursday

Did you think government regulation of the plant caused the price to drop?

Price figures are probably inflated by equally inflated DEA egos to make their job seem more important :wink:

They probably figure something like $400/oz.

I also don't think they determine between buds, stems, leaves, etc.

A plant that weighs 10 oz = $4,000 in marijuana in their eyes.

Good, I hope DEA agents get ripped off for 400$/oz of stems. :P
