As Marijuana Acceptance Grows – The DEA Reports Busted Grow Ops Drop By 60% | Marijuana.com


As marijuana revenues are projected to cultivate strong gains over the coming years, a new report shows marijuana cultivation busts have nosedived by nearly 60%.

Back in the heady days of 2009 2010, when busting marijuana growers was still considered a great federal jobs program, the DEA was responsible for harvesting over 10 million plants [albeit prematurely]. Now, fast-forward to 2012, after Colorado and Washington’s voters fired up their recreational marijuana laws. We see those pesky pot eradication numbers drop to well below 4 million plants pulled by the Drug Enforcement Administration, or their local counterparts.

From that peak of over 10 million, the Drug Enforcement Administration said the number of marijuana plants eradicated dropped to 6,735,511 in 2011 and 3,933,950 in 2012, just a fraction of the 9 million marijuana plants the DEA had hoped to destroy.

DEA officials attribute the decline in part to the state of California, declaring in the agency’s 2014 budget proposal that California’s financial constraints resulted in “the decreased availability of local law enforcement personnel to assist in eradication efforts.” [Ha!]
