DEA claims to have confiscated 578,000 Marijuana plandts. Did they actually count them?

Federal authorities found 578,000 marijuana plants in a raid nearly two months in seven western U.S. states, the Department of Justice.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said “Operation Mountain Sweep” was conducted from July 1 in California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho and Utah.

Most of the marijuana, 483,000 plants were located in the state of California, the prosecutor confirmed.

He said it was an operation led interagency Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to federal, state and local.

Although the operation was not reported detention, Duffy reported that in addition to the drug plantations are located and destroyed drug camps, and facilities and resources used for drug cultivation and irrigation systems, fertilizers and agricultural pesticides.

He said most of the marijuana was discovered in forests of national parks throughout the western U.S..

For a year the four federal prosecutors in California and other states have systematically dismantled, the production and sale of marijuana for medical purposes.

In addition to locating and eradicating crops, authorities warned they could confiscate businesses selling marijuana dispensaries called, and the premises in which they are located, leading to hundreds of landlords to terminate leases and close the outlets.
