Landfills and dumps buried over often become suburban home sites in later years, unbeknownst to people who may live on them. About two-thirds of landfill waste contains biodegradable organic matter from households, business and industry. As this material decomposes, it releases methane gas.
The plants carried an estimated street value of $189 million.
All 70 tons of the weed plants were buried at the Lamb Canyon Landfill in Beaumont, where officials worked past 11 p.m. to dispose of the cannabis, Department of Waste Resources staff said Friday.

As of now, several firearms were seized, over one hundred locations searched, and about a dozen arrests.
