2008_08_potfarm.jpgThe Daily News reports that firefighters found a pot-growing operation in a commercial warehouse on Decatur Street yesterday morning. They had just put out a fire in a building next door when "Somehow the smoke-eaters sniffed out the pot in a three-story building next door and called the cops," who then removed 80 to 100 marijuana plants. The building's super says he was clueless because the "growing area because it was chained off and padlocked." This is just the latest in the timeless tradition of the authorities dealing with incidents and then stumbling onto pot farms (examples 1, 2, and 3).
