By Jim Adams, Star Tribune Last update: June 19, 2007 – 2:04 PM A watchful neighbor's call led to the arrest Monday of a 35-year-old man suspected of growing more than $1 million worth of marijuana in his Apple Valley home. http://www.startribune.com/crime/story/1255352.html Now I can recall many many many years ago I dropped a few seeds into a pot of dirt. Now this man was going to make a fortune. read the whole story it's amazing how much was here. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

You have to love the cops, how they get from 1200 plants to 1.8 million dollars is anyone's guess. Considering the value of outdoor weed in my little area, the actual value would be half that, at best. When will the US catch up the the rest of us on pot laws?

Wow that sure is a lot of pot! I can't believe he would be dumb enough to tap into the underground power line. Did he think he would not be caught just by doing that alone? Well looks like the guy is not going to make any money and I am sure his house will be confiscated also. I was tempted in my earlier days to drop a few seeds myself but thought better of it.

thanks for sharing that was interesting! The best part or worst part is how these crooks earn $3000 a pound of weed but are too cheap to pay for their own electricity! well, justice prevails in this instance. next time a neighbour moves in, ask to see their house! hee.

Thats too bad for that guy, it sounds like he was a little greedy. One or two plants are ok in my book. But of course the law still states that it is illegal. A little birdie told me that the state of Michigan where I live will be putting it on the ballot for recreational use in the privacy of your own home. It is supposed to be so you can grow two plants and no more than that. Now it will still be illegal at the Federal level though. If it passes the state police will not say anything, but the Feds could still bust the offenders. I'm Hoping it passes. Peace, Totty

WOW! 1264 plants removed from the house! That's just mind boggling. That's pretty close to one of the recent busts here in California. If I remember right, the officers pulled over 1800 plants from the home and the special shed the owner built out in the back yard for the plants. Just imagine standing downwind of THAT pile as the authorities burned it away. LOL
