100+ Marijuana Plants Confiscated in Ohio Raid

100+ Marijuana Plants Confiscated in Ohio Raid

Medical marijuana may be coming to Ohio soon (it will probably be on a November ballot), but for now, it’s just another state lying in the weeds. And it’s where the latest tale from the “How Not To Grow” bud department comes from. We’ve talked about grow mistakes and disasters before, and today’s raid in Dayton, Ohio should serve warning on how to properly grow and store your cannabis seeds. The raid succeeded in destroying hundreds of dollars of herb in a suburban neighborhood:

At least 100 high-grade marijuana plants, firearms and cash were confiscated Wednesday morning in multiple drug raids in Dayton. Four search warrants were issued at 7 a.m. by the RANGE Task Force, which is tasked with assisting in drug enforcement in Montgomery County. The warrants were served at 5941 Gander Road, 2402 Speice Ave., 671 Carlisle Ave. and 128 McReynolds St.

Well, you can at least give the guy credit for trying. The operation was making a lot of money, according to cops, and was quite elaborate, with a timed watering and lighting system throughout the house. Neighbors, shocked by the appearance of the police, said the suspect was quiet but generally thought he was a good guy.

Cops haven’t shared many details on the story, and spent the day interviewing neighbors and recovering the cannabis. There’s no word on how the grow house was discovered or who the suspect is, but so far, there have been no charges filed. As always, no one knows what’s actually happened to the marijuana, either. If this is the quality kush that the Montgomery County Sherriffs claim it is, I think I’ve got a couple ideas as to where it went.
