Raid nets 700 hydroponic marijuana plants

ESCATAWPA, Miss. - A drug raid Thursday netted more than 700 hydroponic marijuana plants being grown in an Escatawpa house.

Jerry L. McDonald of Jackson County has been charged with manufacture, distribution and possession of a controlled substance, officials said.

He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

According to Bruce Lynd, a state narcotics agent, the marijuana found in the home on Wildwood Road was hydroponic, meaning it was grown in a nutrient-rich solution rather than soil.

The psychoactive ingredient in the plant, called THC for short, occurs at higher levels in hydroponic marijuana.

Typical buds will contain 2 percent to 3 percent THC, whereas hydroponic marijuana may contain 7 percent or 8 percent.

"Some has tested as high as 17 percent," Lynd said.

The street value of hydroponic marijuana also is higher. A pound goes for more than $2,400, as opposed to $1,600 for the typical product.

All rooms of the three-bedroom house were filled with plants surrounded by reflective walls.

A 55-gallon drum was fitted with hoses to irrigate the plants in each room.

Overhead lights were timed to help the plants grow faster, said Lynd.

McDonald lived in a separate home and is alleged to have used the house solely for marijuana production.

"It's a nice neighborhood," said Louis Miller, commander of the Jackson County Narcotics Task Force. "He kept his grass cut and the neighbors didn't suspect anything."

Marijuana growing is not declining despite efforts of agencies like Miller's.

"There's too much money in it for them to stop," Miller said.

i know thats the max sentence and max sentences aren't usually carried out... but they have the potential to be, and for what?

the only way i could see someone deserving 30 years for growing pot is if they were lacing it with anthrax to kill people or something.

The longer I live in a free government, the more I begin to think: Who is really free? Me or the government?

Utter bullshit if you ask me.
