    Sonoma County drug agents, working with the state Campaign Against Marijuana Planting, just two weeks into the season already have seized more pot plants than in all of last year.


    So says Sonoma County Sheriff's Sgt. Chris Bertoli, who runs the county's Narcotics Task Force, which over six days in the past 12 destroyed 150,667 immature plants.

    The county task force last year seized 108,486 plants with CAMP and another 40,000 on its own, he said.

    Three days in June with CAMP personnel yielded 145,467 plants from raids near The Geysers, Lake Sonoma and the Red Slide area of Mill Creek, Bertoli said.

    The task force on its own destroyed another 5,200 plants found on private lands, including in a vineyard, working without additional personnal or CAMP air support.

    The combined 150,667 plants, if allowed to grow, could have yielded smokable bud worth an estimated $300 million, assuming each plant produced a pound of usable pot, Bertoli said.

    It's not just the Hippies. The damned illegals have their hands in it, too.

    The proliferation of garden operations run by Mexican organized crime syndicates has contributed greatly to beefed up production, Bertoli said.
