unfortunate choice of plants...

Wash.'s No. 8 Agricultural Commodity: Pot
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Law enforcement officers harvested a dubious record last year - enough marijuana plants to rank the illegal weed as Washington state's No. 8 agricultural commodity, edging out sweet cherries in value.

The 135,323 marijuana plants seized in 2005 were estimated to be worth $270 million - a record amount that places the crop among the state's top 10 agricultural commodities, based on the most recent statistics available...

It's too bad the growers didn't use their knowledge to grow potatoes or other edible crops. They wouldn't be in trouble and, perhaps, they would have seen a profit.
