By Ben Carlson

Friday was not a good day for pot heads in Anderson County.

The sheriff’s department and state police used a helicopter to spot, and hatchets and saws to chop down, over $600,000 worth of pot plants in the county’s western end.

Sheriff Troy Young said the tag-team duo spotted and removed 303 marijuana plants in 25 different locations that afternoon as a means of helping keep pot out of Anderson County.
