Marijuana seizures on Colorado Property doubled in 2017

Marijuana seizures on Colorado public land nearly doubled in 2017

Colorado’s mountains and woods aren’t just crowded and their selfie sticks. Last year, the arm of the law pulled on a record number of marijuana plants from public lands in the nation.

Officers uprooted nearly 81,000 plants in 2017 from the depths of the state’s mountain ranges, compared to about 45,000 in 2016, according to data collated by a drug task force.

This was the annual increase in a row, according to the report. In fact, the reported number of plant confiscations was 18 times higher in 2017 than it was in 2014, the year of legalization.
