It seems the men who operated the marijuana operation New York City police have shut down this week embraced the notion of "go big or go home." They say the main building in the marijuana "farm" stood 5 stories high and had plants 7 feet tall.
The operation, police say, did over $3 million in business during the past calendar year. They arrested three men on site and there may be more arrests connected to the grow-op. "It was estimated that 50 to 60 lbs per month were being produced with a value of approximately $250,000. It was conservatively estimated that $3 million was sold over the past year," a statement released by the NYPD said.

Police found 593 marijuana plants in the building and the 3 men were charged with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
They went big and now appearing to be going - to jail.
