Maybe they thought that marijuana was a native California plant.

So this is an insider job - since this place is inaccessible by outsiders.

It was probably some Biz School students working on a product development assignment.

Although this area is fenced off and is not supposed to be accessed by outsiders, it is actually fairly accessible. There are many locations where you could cut the fence or climb over it without anyone seeing you. I wouldn't conclude that this was an inside job just because it is not open to the public.

I wish I'd beaten them there.

Let them live, and share the crop w/ the community.
