    One Thousand Marijuana Plants Found at Old Fortune Cookie Factory

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | December 22, 2009

    The Oakland Tribune has a great crime story about 1,000 marijuana plants — up to four feet tall — which were found at an old fortune cookie factory in Oakland. The estimated value? About half a million dollars.

    The factory, originally owned by the Kar Mee fortune cookie company, appears to be founded in 1977. It sold in 2007 to David Tse, and he offered a multitude of custom flavors, including green tea. But according to the Tribune, an eviction notice on the building shows that the cookie factory had been ejected as of November 2008.

    One police officer, who had worked narcotics for many years, said the buds on some of the plants are some of the largest he’s seen.

    Wonder if the fortune cookies played any role in that.
