SAN DIEGO—Federal agents have uprooted more than $20 million worth of pot in three huge marijuana grows within San Diego County's Cleveland National Forest.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says more than 7,200 marijuana plants, some up to seven feet tall, were confiscated in last week's raids.
The raids included DEA agents, National Guard troops and U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and San Diego Sheriff's Department investigators.
More than 60 marijuana growing sites and more than 128,000 plants have been discovered so far this year in the San Diego area
