SACRAMENTO (AP) - November 20, 2008

State and federal drug officials in California report pulling up a record number of pot plants this year, more than five million.

Authorities say most of the marijuana cultivation is done on public land.

Officials note more than half the nation's pot crop is grown in California between July and October.

Authorities also report making 143 busts and seizing 142 weapons this growing season.
