CHICAGO ? Police in Chicago became farmers for a day Wednesday as they began to chop down a marijuana farm as big as two football fields found in the city.

The farm, which contains about 1,500 plants and could have netted $7-10 million, was spotted by a police officer and county sheriff's deputy in a helicopter as they headed back to their hangar, MyFoxChicago.com reports.

No arrests had been made as of Wednesday, and police were still trying to determine who owns the property that housed the grow site on the city's far South Side. But police said they were hopeful that because of the size of the operation, informants or others might provide tips about those involved, including a man seen running from the area as the helicopter swooped low.

James O'Grady, the commander of the department's narcotics division, tells The Associated Press they've never seen anything like it before, in part because Chicago's harsh winters mean growers have a lot less time to plant, grow and harvest marijuana than their counterparts in less inclement places such as California and Mexico. The bumper crop was likely planted in spring, O'Grady said.

Chicago Police Officer Stan Kuprianczyk, a pilot, said police helicopters flew "over it all the time," to and from their hangar, without spying the grow site.

We waste so much money on this prohibition crap, and then lose out on tax revenue on $7-10million of potential sales. This is messed up.

There fixed it.

I have to agree with legalizing weed and collecting high tax from it. <-- I love that pun. :)

I don't currently smoke weed but I don't see a good argument against it. Government needs to stop wasting money on fighting it. Focus on other crime.

Tax the hell out of it and make it legal. It's just a stupid fight on all fronts.
