A Texas man decided grow his own to beat high prices.

But it wasn't lettuce or tomatoes in his garden.

Tyler County deputies say a tip led them to Miller's rural property, where they seized more than 70 pot plants.

Authorities put the value of the illegal weed at about $100,000.

Sheriff's Sergeant Randy Meadows tells the Tyler Morning-Telegraph that Miller said he was trying save money by growing his own.
