The drought is bad enough… making streams run low and even dry in places. 

But its effects have been compounded along the Klamath River by illegal marijuana growing operations that divert water and cause streams to run dry artificially. 

The Yurok Tribe recently joined forces with law enforcement agencies from the local, state and federal level... to raid some of the illegal pot grows. 

Yurok Public Safety Chief Leonard Masten tells us about the raids and results.
