Over 20 people were sought out in an illegal marijuana growing enterprise that masked itself as a medical marijuana business, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

An MCSO spokesperson said detectives from several Valley law enforcement agencies acted on search warrants involving at least 25 people who participated in the business. 

MCSO says the operation may be the largest illegal marijuana grow in the whole state.
