Huge cartel grow op busted in Oregon

Cops confiscated a massive amount of marijuana and a handful of weapons from a 30-acre property in Alfalfa, east of Bend, Oregon. Cops found over 9,000 marijuana plants in 49 greenhouses, 2,800 pounds of processed pot, an AR-15 rifle and two pistols. Police say most of the laborers at the site were Mexican nationals who were illegally trafficked into the United States to work at the grow op. Greenhouses contained thousands of plants at various growth stages, and over 1,400 kilos of processed pot. The grows divert or steal significant water, a valuable commodity in the arid central Oregon high desert.
