Marijuana Fields Forever: 15,000 cannabis plants found in Texas
Texas authorities are reporting that they have found an abandoned field full of pot plants, 15,000 to be exact.
Few details were given about how or when the field was discovered in northeast Washington County.
Deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department estimated the cannabis plants at $7.5 million. This works out to $500 per plant. Each plant can grow anywhere from four to eight ounces, which means authorities are valuing each ounce anywhere from $31 – $62 a piece at likely a wholesale price.
This past week authorities found 5,500 plants growing on federal land being leased by a Texas rancher in Chambers County.
