The crop, spotted by a Cook County sheriff’s officer on a routine helicopter patrol Tuesday, might be worth as much as $10 million on the street, police said.

The plants — some as tall as 10 feet high — sprouted up in the middle of unused industrial land along the 10600 block of South Stony Island, thick with brush and tall grass.
