Spike In State Marijuana Eradications

Sacramento, CA — The amount of marijuana eradicated in California increased substantially this year.

The state’s Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (C.A.M.P.) seized 4.4 million plants in 2009, compared to 2.9 million in 2008.

State Bureau of Narcotics Spokesperson Michelle Gregory told the Associated Press that the increase is attributed to larger pot gardens and better eradication strategies.

Meanwhile there were over 200,000 plants eradicated in Tuolumne County in 2009, compared to 107,000 in 2008.
