LIVERMORE - A high-tech marijuana growing operation discovered by Livermore police in October has been hailed as one of the largest indoor pot busts ever in Alameda County, and has led to federal charges against three East Bay men.
Police say some of the pot was being distributed to medical marijuana dispensaries. But Drug Enforcement Agency assistant special agent in charge Larry Mendosa said it doesn't matter why the marijuana was being produced.
The operation was a clear violation of federal law, said Mendosa, adding that such enforcement is necessary, even if it is not popular. "The federal government does not recognize state law."
