No wonder I'm light headed going up Moody Road

I always thought it was the steepness at the top of Moody Road that made my head spin:

Huge pot farm found on Hidden Villa land in Los Altos Hills

Quote:
Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies on Thursday swooped down on a summer camp and popular hiking area in Los Altos Hills, spotting - and removing - 32,000 marijuana plants with a total street value of nearly $128 million.

It was the largest marijuana haul from a single garden in county history, said Special Operations Capt. Edward Perry. The last largest was in 2005 when 18,000 plants were found.

No arrests have been made in either case.

Perry said today that the Marijuana Enforcement Team got a tip about the most recently discovered plants, and spotted them from a helicopter looking down on Moody Road at Page Mill Road near Palo Alto. The land is owned by Hidden Villa, a summer camp and educational ecology non-profit, whose executive director wasn't immediately available for comment. The property owners had no knowledge of the marijuana being grown there, deputies said.
No knowledge of 32,000 marijuana plants. Yeah. Sure.

Wow, 32,000 marijuana plants? That's huge! Never really noticed anything different when I passed by there ...

I just got back from a ride up there, and I feel totally high.

But I think that's from the ride, not the reefer.

That route always made me more hungry and less ambitious then usual. Now that the plants are gone, I'll see if there is any difference
