Hunters Being Urged To Look Out for Marijuana Farms

deerweedOutdoor marijuana growers have always faced the possibility of hikers and hunters accidentally stumbling across their grow sites and now state officials are urging more hunters to report suspected sites. Just last month, a hunter in Shawano County, Wisconsin discovered over 8,000 plants resulting in the largest bust in state history.  That has led the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to issue a warning for hunters to keep their eyes open for marijuana-growing operations this season.

The Wisconsin DNR says hunters should look for things that seem out of place in the woods, like huts, tents or other makeshift structures; equipment; watering jugs; chemical containers; or signs of disturbed vegetation. They urge anyone to report their findings to law enforcement and if possible not the GPS coordinates. They fail to mention that due to U.S marijuana prohibition, many remote grow sites are ran by Mexican drug cartels and protected by armed guards with machine guns.
