Marijuana hydroponic setup raided in organized crime case

Organized crime prosecutors have taken on a case of marijuana growing.

Agents raided a home in León XIII early Wednesday to detain two men who are suspected of maintaining a marijuana growing operation at a three-bedroom home in La Uruca. The plants were being raised with a hydroponic system that increases the potency of the marijuana by manipulating the ph level, said prosecutors.

At the La Uruca location, agents found nearly 200 plants growing under artificial light.
