Tuesday Denver police executed searches at various illegal marijuana grows throughout the city, according to the Denver Post. The investigation has been going on for about two years, and police claim it will take months to close the case.

“It’s likely to go on for several more months,” said Marcus Fountain, Denver police commander. “It’s that complicated.”


Authorities have not released how many grow operations were busted or how much marijuana was confiscated, but no arrests have yet been made. Colorado residents who are over 21 are legally allowed to grow six plants at a time, but only three can be flowering at once. The limit is 12 plants per house, regardless of how many adults reside there.

To grow more plants than the city’s legal limit one must obtain a caregiver license. For more information on the investigation, read the full story
