A lot of pot

How do you fit $2 million worth of marijuana plants inside one house?

This way:
Police seized 350 high-grade marijuana plants that were growing inside a home Monday night on the city's west side.

The plants, which ranged from 2 feet to 7 feet tall and worth an estimated $2 million, were being grown with a hydroponic lab at a home in the 9200 block of Adams Hill, police said. A lighting system, a ventilation system, carbon dioxide and other chemicals were found in the second story of the home.

"I've been told this appears to be the largest hydroponic seizure in San Antonio history," said Sgt. Chris Benavides of the San Antonio Police Department.
(from KSAT-12)

With that much pot, he probably had a hydroponic vegetable garden that was just as big. In case he got hungry.

They normally inflate their figures to make themselves look important. With busts like that, they take the total weight and figure the value as if it were going to be sold *by the joint*.

That's kinda like calculating the value of a keg of beer by figuring out how much you could charge to sell a shotglass of beer, then multiplying that by how many shotglasses in a keg, and charging you that for the keg.

Kinda ridiculous, but since the public doesn't know, they just go "whoooooo".
