It’s that time of year again. No, not harvest time. That’s in a few more weeks. We’re referring to the time of year when cops and farmers across the Midwest stumble upon clandestine marijuana fields set up by guerilla growers.
We’ve already seen it happening outside of Houston over the last few weeks, but a bust in Pennsylvania this weekend officially kicks off the start of this most depressing season.
Cops in Jefferson Township, Pennsylvania say they were called out to a local farmer’s place Sunday after the farmer found himself some mary-joo-wana growing on his property. The crop was somewhat hidden off of a rarely-used path, though clearly not hidden well enough.
The good news is that nobody was arrested, and likely they won’t be. These Midwest guerilla grows are often planted and then left until harvest time and growers don’t often stick around to tend to the crops.
