Is there anyone left who isn't growing pot in their foreclosed home? This latest one comes to you from lovely Minnesota:

From KAAL Television:

An inspector, changing the locks on a foreclosed home, discovered a major drug operation in Bloomington Thursday.

Police in full HAZMAT gear spent the day hauling lights and other equipment used to grow marijuana from the home near 98th Street and France Avenue.

Neighbors told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the home was not taken care of.

"I called the city and asked them to cut the yard. The weeds were five feet high," said Brian Southwell. "He had a business going there from what I hear, a business in the basement."

Police said they seized 200 marijuana plants worth up to $800,000 on the street. Investigators also found a big mess inside.
