|Police hunting for marijuana|
Weeding out illegal pot costs millions
The RCMP and military have spent nearly $11.5 million in the past eight years on a search-and-destroy mission for illicit marijuana crops.
Figures show the annual Mountie-led effort has led to tens of thousands of plants being weeded out each year. Last year the military spent more than $361,000 on helicopter support for the operation, which resulted in eradication of over 40,600 plants (TORONTO STAR, Friday, August 22, 2014).
