Someone thought they could actually grow TWO football fields worth of marijuana in plain sight-- SO THEY DID! Good Morning America reports on the illegal grass.

“They actually did, at least until yesterday. Some of the plants as you can, well, see here are as big as Christmas trees. Street value? 10-million dollars.”

We’re guessing the pot grower was hoping that since it was right in front of authorities’ faces -- they’d never see it? Here’s CNN.

“It’s believed to be the biggest pot field ever found in Chicago! Yeah, Chicago! ... Police found the fields during a helicopter flight.”

Reports say the plants will be relocated and burned. And as for a suspect? NBC Chicago reports.  

“Police also discovered a camp with a sleeping bag, tarp and food, which most likely belonged to a watchman, but it was empty when police searched the sight, and no one has been arrested.”

The report also says the fields might have up to 1,000 plants.
