October 28,1999, Arcadia, CA: State Attorney General Bill Lockyer announced yesterday that the state's Campaign Against Marijuana Planting has seized over 250,000 marijuana plants. Lockyer said the plants' value is close to $1 billion. 
The number of plants seized almost doubled last year's total. This year also saw California's largest single haul when agents raided a grower in southern California with 48,000 plants.   "Growing marijuana is a non-violent offense and should not be a high priority for California authorities," said Keith Stroup, NORML Executive Director. "This is an enormous waste of law enforcement resources that should be focused on violent and serious crime."   For more information, please contact Keith Stroup, NORML Executive Director at (202) 483-5500 or Dale Gieringer, State Coordinator for California NORML at (415) 563-5858.NORML's Weekly News Bulletin: Reports Record Crackdown On Marijuana Crop - 10/27/99 News NORML Archives:
