Swiss Police Uncover Hidden Marijuana Farm Using Google Earth

Swiss Police, aided by Google Earth, busted a group of "agricultural enthusiasts" who concealed two acres of ganja in the middle of a corn field. The only thing they didn't account for: satellite imaging.

Police weren't specifically looking for the farm at the time of the bust, but were using the mapping software for a larger investigation when they serendipitously stumbled upon the farm in question. As a result of Google's Big Brother technology, the police confiscated 1.2 tons of marijuana, arrested 16 people, and collected $US900,000 in cash and valuables.

That sound you hear? It's rastas around the world softly crying themselves to sleep (every time a pound of high grade is confiscated, they die). [AP via Breit Bart]
