It's pot harvest time in WV. A helo has been circling around the mountain we live on. Reminds me of the song, "Copperhead Road".

Good thing there is a zillion dollar Central Govt Bureau to protect us from a plant.

Quick, make a run for the plants before the growers return or the DEA descends. Nice of them to show you where they are and all.

That's what happens when you don't pay your taxes.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

THP, County's and others used to clear the fields early in the summer here.

They found out that the growers just replanted knowing the lawdog folks thought they had solved the problem for the year
Last I know of, now they just watch and clear the fields just about "harvest time"

I used to hunt in PA with Sheriff Officer's from Wood County who got a lot of money from the DEA, FBI and IRS to buy helicopters, learn to fly them and bust pot growers.

To the best of my knowledge, they never crashed although they did have two AD's with injury including one of the guys I hunted with. I think they promoted him to XO under Sheriff Griner.

I’ve seen several drones about lately. You reckon that’s what they’re doing?

Back in the 80’s an uncle was dairy farming on the upper end of Russell Creek in Adair county. He was raising corn for silage on his and an older neighbors bottom land.

After the corn got up a bit someone came in and planted pot plants in the rows. I guess it grows well with the fertilizer. Needless to say it was close enough to the road that it was found. I doubt that the grower was caught but it was fun story at the time. I’d say this happens a lot to this day.

Used to have a bird dog that was from Ohio . Sometime in late 70’s .
He was a government inspector for REA systems , older fellow , cool fellow .
He used to tell us how funny it was to watch the hippie’s at harvest time .
They were growing amongst the wild hemp supposedly for blending in .
Said the wild stuff grew thick along the RR tracks .
Some places supposedly had overgrown tracks of land far enough away from the tracks not to be affected by spray and some areas were seriously neglected.
His home overlooked such an area and he said they were like ants harvesting .
He was the type that never met a stranger and we had a professional grower working with us , so he picked the guys story pretty well and the fellow always had a calm and good answer.
He also conversed with the hippies crossing his property, his only stipulation was they not damage fence or property.
Used to be line contractors had an interesting variety of workers .
But osha and electrical suppliers eventually regulated these people out .
