A marijuana grow-op in Watson, Sask., has been busted, says the RCMP.

A number of marijuana plants were discovered, police said.
The RCMP said an investigation was launched and it was determined the plants were not being grown under a Health Canada medical licence and in contravention of the Cannabis Act.
Members of the RCMP trained Clandestine Laboratory Team assisted RCMP officers in searching the building on Jan. 30.
Police said 424 marijuana plants at various levels of maturity were seized, along with hydroponic equipment.
No charges have been announced and police said they continue to investigate.
