A 45-year-old Chicago man faces a drug charge after police say they found him harvesting marijuana just a few feet away from the Dan Ryan Expressway.

The plants were growing in an embankment along the Metra tracks just south of the 35th Street overpass that leads to U.S. Cellular Field.

It's not clear how long the plants had been growing in that spot.
