A huge marijuana bust in Northern California.  

Twenty-six people have been charged in Shasta and Trinity counties with drug and environmental crimes.  

Sixty thousand marijuana plants, 2,100 pounds of processed marijuana, 70 firearms and more than a million dollars in cash were seized.  

It's part of an ongoing operation called "Operation Safe Counties."

U.S. Attonrey Benjamin Wagner says the use of private lands to produce marijuana for sale in other states often involves weapons and potential violence, violates federal law and creates dangerous conditions in Northern California.
