$1.45 Million in Marijuana Plants Seized in Eastern Shore Drug Bust

Medical marijuana may be a budding industry in Maryland, but that doesn’t mean any old person can grow millions of dollars in marijuana plants in an abandoned warehouse on the Eastern Shore.

But according to the Baltimore Sun, someone tried to do exactly that. More than 700 of the 6- to 10-foot-tall plants were seized from a property in Kent County over the summer. Those plants were just weeks away from being harvested, and would’ve netted their growers around $1.45 million if sold for their street value, according to police.

While police have seized the plants and assorted farming paraphernalia, they have not arrested any suspects in the growing operation.

When police raided the pot farm, they found a pit bull on hand to guard the premises. The dog was taken into custody and later adopted.
