      California's Federal Marijuana Crackdown Underway

      By Lemor Abrams

      FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -- The Central Valley's marijuana sites are moving out, as federal drug agents move in to clear them.

      Last week, federal prosecutors vowed to go after for-profit grows and dispensaries across the state.

      The warning: shut down in 45 days or face civil and criminal action.

      Federal drug enforcement agents are now delivering on that promise.

      They raided a pot farm in Southeast Fresno, and came across 6,000 marijuana plants in the backyard.

      They say the owners of the property also own the Sanger property where a much larger pot farm was raided in July. At that house, agents destroyed 25,000 plants.

      The feds filed a lawsuit to take over ownership of both properties.

      Investigators say the farms are worth millions.
