In latest bust, police overestimated pot plant numbers by 20,000

" In fact, the marijuana farm found this week near Mountain Creek Lake in Grand Prairie consisted of fewer than 10,000 plants", DEA officials said Friday. Dallas police flew over Dallas-Fort Worth area and found long plantation of marijuana. The discovery, though, still is a large one among the string of large pot field finds near the lake. These long fields of marijuana is irrigated and " the latest set of plots employed watering systems similar to the PVC pipes and canals of the other farms", DEA spokeswoman Terri Wyatt said. Dallas police is trying investigating to see who might be under this massive plantation. Some police intelligences are pointing at possible Mexican drug cartels, but it is not certain. DEA agents and Dallas police are sweating and heaving trying to dispose these green marijuana plants. Although the article has its title "In latest bust, police overestimated pot plant numbers by 20,000", it is absolute that 20,000 is still a massive amount. It is a shame that these massive plants are still around and it lets us to question the effectiveness of our nation's homeland security. Lets not worry so much about what is going on outside of the nation, and lets concentrate on what is really going on inside. These massive plants are numerous in number and most of them are still unknown in its location. Drug markets are still prevalent in this society, and our government should use whatever that is necessary to remove and prevent these illegal markets.

You're at the verge of making a very important argument here. Local police and homeland security can't keep someone from growing acres and acres of marijuana, out in the open, near one of the most populated cities in the nation. I don't feel so secure....
