The Creek County Sheriff's Office burned more than 6,000 pot plants found southwest of Mannford on Friday.

Sheriff John Davis told FOX23 that 6,270 pot plants were found in a rural area southwest of Mannford.

They got a tip on Wednesday about the plants and got a search warrant on Friday morning. Deputies described the area as very remote and private.

Deputies said they expected to find a couple of hundred plants, were not expecting the thousands they found. They said the plants were obviously cared for and were all about 2 to 3 feet high.

The plants were connected by a walking path, and the plants had been potted in six plots.

It's estimated the plants had a $2 million street value. Deputies arrested one man but believe others are involved.

The tax on $2 Million could have gone a long way towards hiring teachers or fixing roads and bridges. Fox23 does not yet understand the majority of Americans now favor at least decriminalization for medical purposes. Destroying plants only puts money in the pockets of a few privileged cops.

We must never allow plants created by God Herself to grow in our midst. Genesis 1:29 is obviously wrong.
