Investigators chopped down an outdoor pot patch with a retro vibe Tuesday morning in White Pine.

Constable Eric Large noticed what appeared to be two large marijuana plants growing next to Highway 25E – and further investigation revealed a garden of about 35 plants with diameters up to eight or nine feet and heights to 12 feet. The plants were all well-tended, and charges are pending in the investigation, Sheriff Jeff Coffey said.
