California's Federal Marijuana Crackdown Underway
By Lemor Abrams
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -- The Central Valley's marijuana sites are moving out, as federal drug agents move in to clear them.
Last week, federal prosecutors vowed to go after for-profit grows and dispensaries across the state.
The warning: shut down in 45 days or face civil and criminal action.
Federal drug enforcement agents are now delivering on that promise.
They raided a pot farm in Southeast Fresno, and came across 6,000 marijuana plants in the backyard.
They say the owners of the property also own the Sanger property where a much larger pot farm was raided in July. At that house, agents destroyed 25,000 plants.
The feds filed a lawsuit to take over ownership of both properties.
Investigators say the farms are worth millions.
