Summer drought credited with fewer plants
Each year, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation teams up with local law enforcement agencies to scan the state from the air for marijuana. This year they nabbed 30,000 pot plants.
The operation runs from April to October. This year, Attorney General Mike Dewine says they focused on southern Ohio. They found everything from small to large operations.
Last year's haul was over 46,000 plants. Dewine says the summer drought may be partly to blame for the decrease.
