The Department of Justice’s Campaign Against Marijuana Planting (CAMP) is the country’s largest illegal marijuana grow eradication program. And CAMP is putting in work.
- In 2017, the Department of Fish and Wildlife, which oversees the eradication of what it calls illegally grown cannabis, seized 700,000 plants. Last year the department took out 1.5 million. This year’s number should be much higher.
- Attorney General Javier Beccera attributed the increase in seizures to access to more law enforcement resources, not an increase in illicit growing.
