under there noses but I guess
a few " Pot" plants is the big
When grocery prices go up, many people plant gardens to save some money. A Lawrence County man apparently thought the price of pot was too expensive, so he decided to grow his own.
Sheriff Jody Dotson says on Tuesday deputies arrested 40-year-old Michael Barnard at his home near Annieville.
Barnard was apparently not surprised when deputies knocked at his door. According to Sheriff Dotson, Barnard first asked the deputies why they were there. When they answered “you know why we are here,” Barnard reportedly said “the pot plants.”
Barnard then showed the deputies several marijuana plants that were about four feet tall. Sheriff Dotson says Barnard told deputies he was raising the plants for himself “because marijuana had become so expensive.”
Barnard is currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
