Newsmakers: Marijuana Crop Tour in Northern Wisconsin

Since 2008, federal, state and local law officers have destroyed an estimated 93,000 illegal marijuana plants worth tens of millions of dollars grown in Wisconsin forests. In a fascinating Newsmakers taped in northern Wisconsin, seven officers — including the Ashland County sheriff and a veteran Department of Justice agent — talk about why commercial growers of marijuana choose Wisconsin forests, and how growers live on-site for months, haul generators and other supplies deep into the forest on their backs and harvest the crop at the end of summer.
