State Attorney General Xavier Becerra Monday announced the arrests of 148 people so far this year during the Campaign Against Marijuana Planting Program enforcement effort, the nation’s largest such multi-agency eradication program.

During this year’s effort, CAMP personnel also eradicated 953,459 marijuana plants from 345 raided grow sites across the state and seized 168 weapons, Becerra announced at a downtown Los Angeles news conference.

“Illegal cannabis grows are devastating our communities,” Becerra said.
“Criminals who disregard life, poison our waters, damage our public lands and weaponize the illegal cannabis black market will be brought to justice.”

Becerra said CAMP enforcement teams have worked “tirelessly” to enforce California’s laws against illegal cannabis activity.
