Pot Crop Unknowingly Tended to by Corn Farmer

A farmer in Jerome County, Idaho discovered 314 pot plants growing in his cornfield. The plants are said to have an estimated value of $628,000 but neither the farmer who unknowingly tended the crop, or the original growers will reap the benefits of the harvest as authorities seized the plants.

According to the Jerome County sheriff, “many farmers unwittingly water and fertilize marijuana crops.” The pot is apparently started from seed and then relocated to fields where it is hidden from view and cared for by farmers.
Authorities say the marijuana plants are harvested just prior to the time when the farmers gather their corn.
