An accidental pot grower who received Vermont's first civil marijuana ticket blames some mysterious seeds that he found in a box. But the senior citizen with the green thumb says he won't fight his $200 fine.
William Reynolds, 73, of St. Johnsbury, claims that he found the mystery seeds and planted them, not knowing what they were. After the marijuana plant grew to about two and a half feet, police spotted it, confiscated it, and gave Reynolds a ticket, The Associated Press reports.
The ticket was the first of its kind to be issued in Vermont, which decriminalized possession of marijuana July 1. What does this mean, exactly?
