9,000 Pounds Of Pot Seized By Detroit Police
Drugs Estimated To Be Worth $17 Million

April 7, 2005

DETROIT -- The Detroit police narcotics enforcement unit found more than 9,000 pounds of marijuana in an abandoned warehouse on Thursday.

Officers entered the warehouse in the 15100 block of Hamilton Street on Detroit's west side and seized the marijuana, which was processed in square blocks and packaged in garbage bags, according to a news release from the Detroit Police Department.

Police said the blocks each weighed about 45 pounds. The estimated street value of the drugs was about $17 million, according to Local 4 reports.

Police said due to the large amount of the drug found, it appears the warehouse was used as a storage and distribution site.

No arrests were made.

In the first four months of 2005, the narcotics unit has confiscated more than $58 million worth of illegal drugs, according to the release.

I hate how they place arbitrary monetary numbers on the amount of drugs they seize... something tells me that whoever had that pot didn't stand to make 17 million off it...probably closer to 4-5 million.

it depends how good the pot is. At 17 million for 9000lbs, that's 1900 a pound, which isn't unreasonable.

1900 a pound is reasonable? Maybe if it's some gooood pot, but otherwise pounds usually run for 500 or so on my side of the country.

We will also report to the NAACP and to Al Sharpton's entourage, how the Shroomery administrators allows their mods and members to be balatantly allowed the use of the 'N' word.

Another loss in the marijuana smoking community, but more will always grow. But 9,000 pounds confiscated sure does suck.

"Another loss in the marijuana smoking community, but more will always grow."

"We" already have, given that you bumped a year old post. :smile:
