Multi-Million Dollar Grow Busted in Alabama


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department has uncovered a mult-million dollar indoor pot operation which has been growing marijuana in a warehouse for three years.

Deputies raided the building at 911 41st Street North in Birmingham Thursday night after a two month investigation.


Full article.

The article states that between 400 and 500 plants were confiscated. I’m a little skeptical over the assessed value of the pot, but I think it has been pretty well established by now that our government vastly overinflates the value of street drug seizures. The part of the article about the pot being able to cause “LSD-like hallucinations” would be humorous if it weren’t for the large contingent of ignorant folk who believe statements like this.

    Now, I have not tried LSD. But I have smoked enough pot to have full blown visual hallucinations. Only works for some strains, though. Fittingly, I’ve got this stuff called Shroom that does that. However, to get this, I did have to smoke quite a bit in a very short amount of time, and the effect didn’t last more than like 30 minutes to an hour.

    The article says that the weed has 4x as much THC, compared to what? Ditch weed? Also, LSD-like hallucinations? I guess the cops in Alabama have never smoked weed before, if they had they would never had made such a statement. It’s just fear mongering. I would be very surprised (and excited!) if weed could cause full blown LSD hallucinations. Visual distortions and hearing things that aren’t there I suppose could happen from getting really fucking high, but it’s not the same as LSD.
