While executing a search warrant at the Rolling Hills Nursery in Long Beech, California, officers found 16 tons of marijuana hidden in two large storage containers last Thursday.

The marijuana was worth anywhere between $150-$300 million.

It seems that garden plants were not the only thing that the nursery specialized in growing. But 16 tons?

That’s enough to get the state of California high.

This is just the latest find in a series of recent high-profile marijuana busts in Southern California.
