TV Reporter Wrangles "Cannabis Cowboys" Tonight
, which is airing his footage from the 36-hour C.A.M.P sting operation. The "Cannabis Cowboys" segment airs at 8 tonight.
C.A.M.P.--which consists of federal DEA agents, State Fish and Game officers, Riverside County Sheriff's deputies and California Department of Justice investigators--is the largest law enforcement task force in the country. The task force seeks to destroy five separate marijuana-growing operations worth nearly $90 million, work that draws the officers into the dangerous world of Mexican drug cartels.
This week's broadcast also includes a segment titled "Up in Smoke," which has correspondent Judy Muller updating her investigative report on the growing number of pot clinics in Los Angeles. She discovers that marijuana sold in medical clinics may contain dangerous chemicals and pesticides. Commentator Marcus Villatoro gives a personal account of a local dealer a little too close to home.
The pot-heavy news program repeats Friday at 8:30 p.m., Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.
