Stay away from marijuana farms, advises US Forest ServiceWisconsin News

The U-S Forest Service is again urging campers and hikers to stay away from remote marijuana farms they might run across this summer. Officials at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in northern Wisconsin say drug trafficking groups have been planting pot farms in the spring, and harvesting them in late summer. And those who run across those farms are warned that the growers might be armed. Instead of confronting someone, the Forest Service says those encountering the pot farms should leave, note the location by way-points or landmarks, and then call law enforcement. In the past two years, authorities have eradicated about 80-thousand marijuana plants at the Chequamegon forest. Signs of a pot farm include isolated tents with lots of fertilizer and tools, and cleared tree stumps.
