Marijuana Plantations Eradicated In Multi-Agency Effort

Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area

National Park News

On July 21st, rangers from Santa Monica Mountains and officers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, California State Park Police, CAMP (Campaign Against Marijuana Planting), and Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority entered three marijuana plantation sites and eradicated the plants found within them. Two were located in Malibu Creek State Park and one in the Zuma-Trancas Canyon area on National Park Service land.  All three plantation sites were initially discovered by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which led the operation. A total of 3,509 plans were eradicated, including 1,421 plants in Zuma Canyon. Garbage, PVC piping, camping equipment, fertilizer, and harmful chemicals were also removed. “This was an extremely successful collaborative effort,” said chief ranger Evan Jones.  “Not only were we able to pool our resources to eradicate the marijuana plants, but we were also able to take initial steps towards site clean-up and natural resource restoration.”
