Indiana drought helping police spot marijuana plants

INDIANA -- The drought may have ruined crops, but it's helping police.

It turns out cops have the dry conditions to thank for helping them find more than 100 marijuana plants. Indiana State troopers started their annual marijuana blitz Tuesday.

On the first day, officers seized and destroyed more than 100 plants. They say the weed was easier to spot, because of the dry weather this summer.

The corn fields where some of the plants were found in Clark, Scott and Harrison Counties were very brown, but the cannabis plants were green and lush.
