A Pennsylvania farmer spraying his corn crop last week found a lot more than golden kernels.

A farmer in Penn Township, Butler County, discovered that someone had dug up a number of his corn stalks and planted marijuana instead, NBC reported. The illegal plants were hidden by the height of the corn stalks.

The plants were all close to 18 inches high, NBC said; an individual, full-grown plant can produce up to $600 of marijuana.

Authorities plan to destroy the plants; the farmer will not be charged.

I read somewhere the whole anti-marijuana movement was fomented by a chemical company that had come up with a formula for chemically manufactured rope, which company then pushed for the law against growing hemp(as marijuana) in order to destroy the long-time traditional manufacture of hemp rope by denying the manufacturers the raw material needed thus insuring the chemically based rope's profitability by destroying its major competitor.
