A surprised farmer in western Pennsylvania made a shocking discovery: 150 marijuana plants in his corn field. 

NBC Philadelphia reports that authorities in Butler County's Penn Township say the man was spraying his field down when he discovered the marijuana dead in the middle of it, obstructed by weeds and corn stalks. Each plant was 12 to 18 inches tall, and police add that fully-matured plants are worth $500 to $600. 

The man won't be charged, as police are convinced someone else removed the corn stalks and planted marijuana in their place.
