When we are talking about this weed crop and say "giant", we really mean "MASSIVE"!

In Madisonville, TX., (between Crockett and College Station... north of Huntsville), authorities have busted a massive marijuana crop of more than 18,000 plants. The crop had a police street value of $9,000,000.

Police think growers had been set up at camp there for a while, possibly as long as three years. They found supplies including bags of fertilizer, thousands of feet of pipe, and a generator, along with tents and lots of batteries.

The grow site was discovered by scouting deer hunters setting up blinds last Friday. No arrests have been made, but police suspect that the operation was being run by one of the Mexican Drug Cartels.
