Pot Farm on Mt. Charleston

It's too dry here in Southern Nevada for marijuana farms to survive.  Or that's what authorities thought - until they found a 4-acre pot farm on Mt. Charleston last week.  They destroyed the farm, but there are still 6-7 others they know of in Clark County.  Is pot growth expanding in our region?  How have growers adapted to our dry weather, and what is law enforcement doing to find these farms?

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
