Smoke Screen

A Putnam County (Fla.) Codes Enforcement Officer was checking a residential property, and called in sheriff’s deputies because of what he saw. Drug and vice detectives responded and dug up 91 marijuana plants from the home’s yard, then returned to the office to research who owned the property to get a warrant for “producing marijuana” — a felony. They didn’t quite finish that task when Boyd Gene Wiley, 47, showed up at the sheriff’s office to file a complaint: sheriff’s deputies, he alleged, “stole” his “medical marijuana” plants. There is no allowance for medical marijuana in Florida. Wiley was promptly arrested. (RC/WJXT Jacksonville) ...He needed that much because he thought marijuana increased intelligence.
