A record marijuana grow operation discovered in northeastern should serve as a warning to anyone who frequents remote areas in Oregon. 91,000 pot plants, six suspects, and lots of guns! That's what authorities found in what the state is calling the largest pot garden ever in Oregon. Ken Mannix with the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team (CODE) was part of a pretty large bust last month in Wheeler County, and says this is all part of a much bigger trend: “There's been a significant increase in outdoor marijuana grows, not only in Central Oregon, but also throughout the state over the years." Mannix says its because the crops are so incredibly lucrative. Witnesses describe the area as having heaps of trash, miles of plastic tubing, herbicides and toxic chemicals, and more than a miles of marijuana plants. In this case, the six men arrested are facing drug charges but may also have to answer for environmental crimes because of the huge mess in the national forest site.
