Marijuana arrests reestablish Broomfield as CO's grow-bust leader: Suck it, Boulder County!

This week, discovery of a 3,000-plus plant marijuana grow in Boulder County was followed by the uprooting of a nearby 4,000-plant grow.

Did Broomfield authorities take these seizures as a challenge to their reputation for marijuana-grow arrests? Maybe -- because today brings yet another one, accompanied by arrests of Joseph Walters, Jason Tye and Tandy McDaniel.
