Well, first it apparently put quite a few people to work judging by the barracks, showers, and other ammenities at the site. Who wants to lose a good paying job?

Second, there's that whole concern about not waking up the next morning.


The guy that dropped the dime was a local.

Wonder what his reward was.



a quick trip to visit the U.S. Marshals office to get a new name

In some of those rural areas of TN, KY, WV, that would be a very good idea. Them boys don't screw around.

Oh, and this was probably one of the better places of employment in the county.

Obion County has the second highest unemployment in the state at just shy of 18%.

So yeah, this operation probably directly employed 30 people and indirectly employed 100s.


As far the place and type of folks...where the bust occurred is some very rural living. Most of the folks there are good people, but they'd definitely kill you for taking away their livelihood. Plenty of places around here for somebody to get disappeared.

Good bust but I laugh at the "estimates" the top cops put up.

I don't get how any rational thinking person would not avoid large operations like that. Law agencies use planes and they also use the National Guard to spot.

No arrests yet.

My cousin in-law said he's been on the site before. Said the reports are slightly exxagerated. He said it was a huge operation, but he didn't think it was 362,000 plants big. He figured maybe 2/3rds that size.

funny (well not really) but I was thinking the same thing when I saw her picture. I remember the thread about her.

that is very sad

as for the grow house that is one large operation. Reminds me of the guy that had done this many years ago also in a cave but not as large. They found him because he stole power.

Because it is cheaper for them to grow it in Mexico. They don't own major parts of the military and LEOs here yet.

Mexican crime syndicates have been growing pot in a number of national forests.

TN & neighboring states have a pretty long history of the locals manufacturing illicit drugs too, though.

I'm thinking that it would be fairly hostile to outside growers there.

Whatever happened to inconspicuous? Marijuana glows an emerald green from the air. Even 20 or 30 plants in a plot can be seen easily by an experienced eye. Yet these morons decided to plant 362,000 plants in one area? LMAO! You could see that from space! The only thing about this story that amazes me is the fact it wasn't located until mid-October. There must not be much in the way of aerial anti-drug operations in that area.

There are no air operations in the area, unless you count a life flight that gets called in from elsewhere in the state.

I grew up in the area, and the options were limited in regards to a livelihood. Your family farms, you work at Goodyear or MTD, UTM, and Tyson. Everything else, such as fast food or the mom-n-pop restaurants, pay minimum wage. Due to the college being in Martin the cost of living is higher than it really should be. Now Goodyear is going away, and MTD has been a crap shoot for years now. Many turn to drugs to cope. Meth was huge, prescription pills are bigger. Pot was always there, and it always will be.

Its a strange place to live, so many things are stuck in the past and at times it seems like life is passing them by. There are lots of decent and honest people, that cling to their values when the rest of the country is circling the drain. And there are also lots of scum, same as any other place. Tyson brought in a lot of Mexicans, straight up illegals, to work in the plant when it opened. They brought some problems along with them, MS13 and BP for instance, that the area would have been without otherwise. But I won't get into that.

I am not defending a giant grow operation. But when you are poor, the job you counted on to survive disappears, and you cannot afford to move any place else then it is not surprising to see something like this popping up.

Huh?

Try one ounce per plant.

You may not be aware, but the entire stem, root ball, leaves, is all trash.
You don't count the whole motherfucker as "weed", despite the plant itself weighing 20oz.

It's only the buds, and once trimmed, you net about one ounce.

You can certainly do better under ideal conditions, such as hydroponic labs and such, but this is just a big fuckin' field.


Don't forget LEOs have been known to weigh the whole plant, root ball and dirt included, to figure those numbers. Both for press releases, and sentencing.

I don 't like LEO getting a reward for doing their job. This can lead to problems.

They don't catch them all, even the large ones. Lots of money to be made. As such, there will always be someone willing to risk it all to get rich. The higher the risk, the greater the potential profits. Hence the folly of the WOD.
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free 'cause I know that I am responsible for everything I do.

It works out to roughly $1200 valuation per plant. Let's put the average yield per plant around 1 pound. 1lb of marijuana has a street value around $2500-4500 depending on quality and level of purchase.

So yeah, that number isn't just pulled out of thin air, it is actually rather conservative.


ETA: Grammar

So now instead of buying some agriculturally minded potheads a big screen tv and a few nice cars it will now fund kidnappings, the killing of LEOs on both sides of the border, and more mercenary trigger pullers for the cartels. The same cartels Iran was going to pay to conduct an op in DC that would have resulted in US citizens dying.

AKengineer loses the game.

This was a major operation. Local yokels don't play this big.

MS13 or the Zeta's will be along to discuss with the local LEO how they can ensure that they don't have to buy a lot of coffins in the near future. The cartels know how to avoid shipment loss . . . grow it here and you have less shipment loss across the border.
