The climate has been warm. We have had lots of days of abundant sunshine and common rainfall. These are just the sort of situations that marijuana plants want to thrive in Louisiana’s subtropical climate. Having said that, Louisiana law states that unless you happen to be an authorized producer for the state’s healthcare marijuana pharmacies, then increasing pot is nonetheless against the law.
A Jennings man, William Horne, identified that out Monday when Jennings Police arrested him and confiscated eight marijuana plants from behind his apartment. Police acted on a tip that a man was noticed getting into a wooded location behind Garret Lane Apartments. Though investigating that tip, that is when authorities found the contraband plants in buckets.
When police searched Horne’s apartment they identified things that could be utilized in the cultivation of marijuana plants. He has been charged with that crime. As of now, no bond has been set for Horne. Officials in Jennings estimate the street worth of the confiscated plants to be about $three,000.
