Marijuana Grow Operation Busted In NY

On Sunday, authorities found a significantly large sized illegal marijuana grow operation in Syracuse, NY. Officers discovered nearly 145 cannabis plants but have yet to have made an arrest in relation to the operation. 


The investigation resulted in the discovery of approximately $20,000 worth of growing and irrigation equipment. Due to the fact that the grow operation is not knowingly connected with any legal dispensaries in the state, the grow was ceased and is considered illegal. Recreational cannabis use is still illegal in New York although the state's medical marijuana program kicked off earlier this month.
