Ever Wonder What 300 Acres of Marijuana Looks Like?

This photo is from an army helicopter flying over the biggest marijuana plantation found in Mexico, in San Quintin, about 350 km away from Tijuana, on July 13, 2011. Mexican soldiers discovered the plantation in a remote desert surrounded by cacti, a top army officer said on Thursday.

Soldiers patrolling the area found 300 acres (120 hectares) of pot plants being tended by dozens of men on Tuesday, said General Alfonso Duarte. He said the crop, which was found in the state of Baja California, about 200 miles/320 km south of San Diego, California, would have yielded about 120 tonnes and was worth about $160 million.
