The authorities of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Reno County law enforcement officers have seized 3,000 marijuana plants 35 miles north of Wichita.  The plants are estimated at $1,000 a piece and could yield about 1 pound of marijuana each.  The stalks themselves were about 12 to 14 feet tall and thought to have been planted around late April or early May.

Police say they were alerted to the marijuana grow operation on Friday after two people clearing areas for deer stands came across the plants.  The plants were not native to Kansas.  It appears people thought it was a good idea to bring their own seeds and begin growing them about a half mile north of the Arkansas River.  The people who cultivated the marijuana really took the time out to care for the plants.

Police also found some plants on wooden drying tables made from tree limbs.  The evidence at the scene included some sleeping mats, tables, stools, and two tents.  The growers had their own camping stove and had dug a hold in the ground deep enough and close enough to the river to use it as an adequate water supply to the site.
