Investigators said they found $30 million worth of marijuana growing in a field in Northern California.Nearly 15,000 marijuana plants were discovered hidden within rows of corn in a field near Brentwood, which is just east of San Francisco.

The plants were spaced about 10-feet apart, so as to draw water from the farm's irrigation system.

Once the plants were pulled from the cornfield, a helicopter lifted them onto a trailer.

So far, police have not made any arrests.
