— A Wake County man and his grandson stumbled on a small marijuana plot while hunting on N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission land Saturday.

Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams said the hunters reported their find, and deputies cut down about 70 plants that averaged about 14 feet tall from an area off N.C. Highway 58 and Old Neck Road.

    Maybe that was the state's secret way to help with the budget problems. :)

    Dude, they just ruined some farmer's crop. He was growing hemp to product rope. Can't grow much tobacco anymore. But, of course, it is illegal to grow hemp in the US I do believe.

    I bet both the grandfather and the grandson wish they had stumbled upon this plot alone. ;)
