Licensed Ontario Grow-Op Busted For Growing Too Many Plants

A grow-op in Cramahe Township has been shut down after police executed two search warrants last week. The OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Unit seized hundreds of plants from the operation. This grow-op had been legally licensed to produce cannabis, but the police discovered that the limit on the number of plants that can be legally grown was crossed by over 700.

Three individuals were charged, and the police estimate that the street value of all of the plants is around $400,000. It should be noted that these kinds of estimates by police are very rough, and it should not be taken as an exact estimate by any means.

Members of Hydro One and the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office were there as well, and they found that the hyrdo had been bypassed and also a large generator was installed illegally, because of a failure to secure a proper inspection.
