Mexico Finds Large Marijuana Farm in Baja California


Mexican soldiers discovered one of the largest marijuana plantations ever found in the country, just 200 miles south of San Diego, Calif., the Mexican Defense Ministry said.









Mexican soldiers found this marijuana plantation, covered in dark netting, Authorities said the crop would be worth an estimated $160 million.
Mexico's army hailed the find as the biggest marijuana plantation ever found in the country, saying the field was four times the size of a notorious bust in 1984 at a ranch called "El Bufalo" in northern Chihuahua state.
But experts questioned the military's claim, saying the Bufalo field was far bigger. Several Mexican press reports say El Bufalo stretched for 540 hectares (1,344 acres), quoting officials at the time.Press reports from the time also said police found anywhere from 2,500 to 6,000 tons of marijuana at the ranch—worth more than $3.2 billion to $8 billion in today's prices.

Mexican officials said on Thursday that the plantation, in Baja California, stretched as far as the eye could see—totaling some 120 hectares (296 acres). The crop would yield about 120 metric tons and be worth an estimated $160 million, the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
