Burning Maryjo

Hundreds Of Marijuana Plants Destroyed Near Enid
ENID, Okla. (AP) _ Drug agents have torched 650 marijuana plants growing in southern Garfield County and northern Kingfisher County.

They were burned Thursday at a Garfield County shale pit northwest of Enid, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs said.

Agents from the bureau spend the summer going throughout Oklahoma eradicating marijuana.

The Oklahoma National Guard supports the effort, providing helicopters agents can fly in to search for marijuana.

Not all marijuana found is burned. Other plants in less-accessible areas are sprayed with herbicides to kill them.

I think "shale pit" is a law enforcement term for house party.

When I used to live in Enid, the shale pit was a place to drive your motorcycle up and down the sides and through the hills made from the dirt and shale, drink a few beers, and dream about being a professional uphill cycle rider. I occasionally took my old Landrover out and ran it up and down those pit hills. If you wanted to party, you went to 9-mile canyon. "House Party". Interesting observation. Probably not even close.
