Authorities say a sweep for marijuana growing in one central Ohio county turned up a 7-foot-tall pot plant the size of a small maple tree.
Knox County Sheriff David Barber says the stalk measured several inches in diameter on the plant seized Monday at a site in Mount Vernon. A news release from Barber's office says state agents involved in the operation said they had never seen such a large marijuana plant.
Officers on the ground were guided to pot growing at various locations by spotters in a helicopter. About 40 plants were seized.
