“Police removed 97 plants, 2,960 grams of marijuana and $7,511 in cash, along with a small amount of cocaine..”
(2,960 grams x $10) + $7,511 + ((97 plants * .5) * $4,409/lbs) + (X * $100/g)
$29,600 + $7,511 + (48.5 lbs * $4,409/lbs) + (X * $100/g)
$29,600 + $7,511 + $213,836.50 + (X * $100/g)
$250,947.50 + (X * $100/g)
Now let’s assume that “a small amount” is less than a gram.. Okay, we will give it a gram to be fair…
$250,947.50 + $100 = $251,057.50
So, how is it that they estimate $1,000,000.00? $750,000 is an awful big number to guess at…
I have to say this is the most flattering newspaper article I have ever heard after a drug bust. It seems like these growers really impressed the media with their quality of operation and product. Seems like these guys need to move to a medical state and do this legally!
Lesson to be learned? Don’t ship pot via mail! And, DON’T EVER SHIP IT TO A GROW HOUSE!!
