August 20, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

A raid on a pot farm in rural Lake County on Wednesday yielded nearly 20,000 marijuana plants, said a spokesman with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

The marijuana would have been worth more than $80 million when it was harvested this fall, according to agency spokesman Richard Meyer.

DEA agents arrested medical marijuana activist Charles "Eddy" Lepp on marijuana cultivation charges, Meyer said. Twelve other people also were arrested during the raid.
