Harvest time

CAMP, which I believe stands for Cops Amping Marijuana Prices, joined forces with the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marshall's Service and the Drug Task Force to raid outdoor gardens from Hoopa to Blocksburg, raking in 28,400 plants from land owned by the Hoopa Valley Tribe, the U.S. Forest Service, the state of California and private timber companies, according to a sheriff's office press release.

And they're just getting started. "The Campaign Against Marijuana Planting [oh yeah, that's what it stands for] will continue operations in Humboldt County throughout the summer," the release states.

You've been warned.
