WASHINGTON COUNTY, Maine — More than 60 law enforcement officers continued Thursday to harvest massive, high-quality marijuana plants at a remote location in Washington County. Not only is the seizure the largest in Maine's history, the multimillion-dollar operation was the first of its kind seen in the state, according to drug enforcement officials.

The pot plantation was discovered Tuesday when a law enforcement plane scoured the area after Maine State Police Troop J received a tip on its Web site.
