Oklahoma authorities seize 72,000 pounds of illegal marijuanaPosted by On

Oklahoma authorities seized one of the largest amounts of black-market marijuana in the state's history.

Authorities announced Tuesday they seized one of the largest amounts of black-market marijuana in the state’s history. 

Authorities said more than 36 tons of the illegally grown crop were captured last week in Wagoner and Lincoln counties, one of the biggest seizures in state history.

The drug bust was organized by the state Attorney General’s Organized Crime Task Force, which was established earlier this year.

“Our state has been overrun with criminals who are trafficking drugs in our local communities and throughout the country,” Attorney General Gentner Drummond said in a news release. “I will not tolerate this serious threat to public safety. I am proud of the work of the Organized Crime Task Force and our law enforcement partners for their efforts to eliminate this blight on our communities.”
