Hot Temperatures Affecting Marijuana Crops As Well

KSCB News - August 1, 2011 8:05 am

State drug agents say the heat in Oklahoma
is killing much of the marijuana crop in the state – but the plants
that survive and are seized can’t be burned because of a burn ban.
Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs spokesman Mark
Woodward stated that most
plants are in poor condition and fields are being abandoned.
Woodward said 1,900 plants found last week in Rogers County were
in good shape because of an irrigation system.
But he says the plants that are seized are being stored until a
burn ban that covers 72 of the state’s 77 counties is lifted. The
Oklahoma Forestry Services website shows only three counties in
southeastern Oklahoma and two in the northeast are not under a burn
ban.
