Mexican cartels running pot farms in U.S. national forest

"American Morning" Correspondent

SEQUOIA NATIONAL FOREST, California (CNN) -- Beyond the towering trees that have stood here for thousands of years, an intense drug war is being waged.


Authorities uncovered more than $1 billion worth of pot plants in Sequoia National Forest this week.

Illegal immigrants connected to Mexico's drug cartels are growing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of marijuana in the heart of one of America's national treasures, authorities say. It's a booming business that, federal officials say, feeds Mexico's most violent drug traffickers.

"These aren't Cheech and Chong plants," said John Walters, director of the National Drug Control Policy. "People who farm now are not doing this for laughs, despite the fact Hollywood still thinks that. They're doing it to make a lot of money."

Walters spoke from a "marijuana garden" tucked deep into the Sequoia National Forest, a two- to four-hour hike from the nearest road, far removed from the giant sequoias the region is best known for. Watch Hollywood needs to chill out, get serious about pot

Ten thousand marijuana plants, some 5 feet tall, dotted the mountainside's steep terrain amid thick brush, often near streams. This garden's street value is an estimated $40 million, authorities said.

Walters clutched three plants he said were worth $12,000 on the streets.

"This is about serious criminal organizations," Walters said. "They're willing to kill anybody who gets in their way. They're taking money back to those who kill prosecutors, judges and law enforcement." See photos of pot farm sweep in heart of U.S. national treasure

Over the past eight days, a federal, state and county law enforcement initiative called Operation LOCCUST has eradicated 420,000 marijuana plants here worth more than $1 billion on the street. By comparison, authorities eradicated 330,000 plants over the six-month growing season last month, said Lt. Mike Boudreaux of the Tulare County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities have arrested 38 people and seized 29 automatic weapons, high-powered rifles and other guns, Boudreaux said.

For years, Mexican drug cartels have used the remote forest to conduct and conceal their business. But the pot production has intensified because it has become harder and harder to smuggle marijuana across the U.S.-Mexico border, Walters said.

"They come into our own national parks and risk the lives of sheriffs and others," Walters said. Watch Mexican pot farms in U.S. forest

Sequoia National Forest is more than 350 miles from the border, named in honor of its 38 groves of giant sequoia trees dating back thousands of years. The forest covers 1.2 million acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Some of the workers have established residency in the United States, Boudreaux said. Most are in the country illegally, he said, many brought for the sole purpose of growing pot, maintaining production and protecting the camp.

"They're using family or very trusted family friends. They don't just use anybody," he said.

Authorities arrested nine people in one bust recently, all of them brothers or cousins ranging in age from 20 to 27, Boudreaux said.
Oh shit...somebody's pissed.

Late.

They have the value jacked up so much higher then its actually worth...reports like these always overstate the "street worth" of the finished product.

Still...huge bust...doesn't suprise me either. There have been a lot of busts in the O here recently as well. Its election time...gotta prove you're actually "accomplishing" something so you can keep your job.

Just imagine...if these were legal pot farms this would immediately create a "billion dollar industry" according to their own reports. But no...we don't want that...we'd much rather have the most populated prison system in the world...that helps the economy SOOOOO much better.

It'll never change...I've accepted that...still pisses me off tho.

I have to admit, it would be cool to walk up in the piece and buy myself a pack of Marlboro 5000s...

But, as I see it...there are a couple of drawbacks.

We can almost be assured that Uncle Sam will price and tax the shit right out of the market. A pack of 20 schwag ass Js might run $100. That's bullshit. Those are crack prices. For schwag??! Fuck that, son.

The market would be regulated very closely by the government. It might start in taking a census of how many packs are bought each day in each area...and it might just snowball from there.

And that's just for starters. Getting the government involved in shit just fucks things up. It's proven. Incompetence, fraud...these are the hallmarks of the American Political System. Get those old puppets in Washington's grubby little hands in your stash and they're liable to end up in your wallet and fuckin your trees up in the process.

It's the classic Conservative Principles...Less Government, More Freedom. The Chronic ain't being "legalized" without going through The Man. They'll fuck shit up somehow...and I ain't willing to give them that chance. Not for MY high...not for nobody!

And finally...shit...makin it legal would take half the fun out of it...
