They busted an illegal growing operation in SF a couple of years back. I saw what they were taking out of the house on the news. They said it was 9000
plants worth over $5 M. The plants weren't even developed yet, probably worth less than $250,000 all together.
If they say it was worth $20 Million, it was probably more along the lines of $500,000.
Depending on quality, street value is around $4000 a pound. Which means the truck probably had around 125 pounds in it, give or take.
$4k USD a pound? ive got a couple of lb' here if your buying at that price
thats double au rates but then again its nothing more than an on
the spot fine for smoking weed in SA, down there with parking tickets.
