87-Year-Old Man Arrested for "Forest of Marijuana" in Colorado
An 87-year-old man was arrested last week for growing more than 400 marijuana plants in the backyard of his Denver, Colorado home. He has documentation for medical marijuana growing in the state, but police say he was over the legal limit for plants.
"I was a care taker for 24 people for the last year or two," Edward Bogunovich told local TV station KUSA. "We did nothing wrong. I wouldn't be stupid not to be legal after doing this for four years."
Police say Bogunovich was legally allowed to have 231 plants, but that he had over 400. He now faces charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana-more than 100 pounds, cultivation of marijuana-more than 30 plants and possession of marijuana-more than 12 ounces.
In the past Bogunovich has been arrested for dangerous drug possession on four different instances, KUSA reported. He's also been charged with damage to property and possession of marijuana.
In the video the man looks quite confused about what is going on, but if you are going to grow legally, you have to be aware of your state’s laws and limits. Authorities are often looking for any reason to bust you.
