Pot farms in forests a growing problem

CHEQUAMEGON-NICOLET, Wis. — Visits to Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in Wisconsin come with a warning these days.

It’s not ticks that forest officials tell hunters, anglers and hikers to worry about. It’s not lightning or dangerous

weather. It’s not even black bears, timber rattlesnakes or the mountain lions that roam wild in the state for the first

time since 1910.
