The Attorney General’s Organized Crime Task Force has seized more than 77,000 illegal marijuana plants.
OCTF and Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) agents served search warrants on November 16 at different medical marijuana grow operations near Prague. The operation yielded 77,362 untraceable untagged marijuana plants.
Attorney General Gentner Drummond left a message for the illegal operations still left in Oklahoma. “We are sending a clear message to Mexican drug cartels, Chinese crime syndicates, and all others who are endangering public safety through these heinous operations. And that message is to get the hell out of Oklahoma.”
The Attorney General has developed a good working partnership with the OMMA.
“Everyone at OMMA, especially the tireless investigative and enforcement staff who spent more than 24 hours straight on scene at this operation, works hard every day to regulate the medical marijuana industry Oklahomans voted for,” said OMMA Executive Director Adria Berry. “These farms hid behind the regulated industry for long enough – once we confirmed they were operating illegally, we worked with our partners to shut them down. Attorney General Drummond, Pottawatomie County and everyone involved showed exactly what happens when government agencies put egos aside and work together for the greater good.”
