Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – We are getting reports that pot prices have shot up in Orange County over the last few days. Some blame inflation, others blame the weak dollar, while others blame China's manipulation of the remin bi.
However, the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) reports having seized over $2 million in pot from an indoor marijuana farm in a Mission Viejo residence. According to OCSD spokesperson Jim Amormino, deputies searched the indoor pot farm at about 6:30 p.m.Wednesday finding about 22 pounds of processed marijuana, six ounces of hashish and $2,700 in cash.
While as of now it is not known where the marijuana was intended to be sent, the more plausible explanation for the increase in pot prices in Orange County, is the OCSD bust in Mission Viejo - The Mission Viejo pot bust comes days after a back-to-back pot bust in the City of Industry. A Thursday night's marijuana bust was the largest ever for El Monte police- $3 million worth, according to El Monte Detective Ralph Bateres."The amount of money that's involved in this operation here is big time," referring to the bust of a high-tech marijuana farm in City of Industry.
