Pot Farm on Mt. Charleston
Pot Farm on Mt. Charleston

AIR DATE: September 6, 2011

It's too dry here in Southern Nevada for marijuana farms to survive.  Or that's what authorities thought - until they found a 4-acre pot farm on Mt. Charleston last week.  They destroyed the farm, but there are still 6-7 others they know of in Clark County.  Is pot growth expanding in our region?  How have growers adapted to our dry weather, and what is law enforcement doing to find these farms?
