Maine police seize rolling marijuana nursery

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police in Waterville, Maine, say they've never seen anything like the portable marijuana nursery they seized from two men pushing it down the street.

Police say officers investigated after receiving a report on Tuesday of two men pushing what appeared to be a huge toolbox down the street that was making a lot of noise.

Police Chief Joseph Massey says it turned out to be a self-contained marijuana-growing unit, with lights, fans and a watering system inside.

Massey tells the Morning Sentinel police found marijuana residue in the box, which is 4½-feet long, 2-feet wide and 4-feet tall.

Police say 34-year-old Justin Leibowitz was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

If they were dumb enough to roll this down the street -

They were most likely dumb enough to give the cops permission to take a look in it.

You really have no idea how many of these 5-watt light bulbs end up arresting themselves......... They make it so-o-o-o easy!

Please let's legalize

Please let's legalize marijuana already so these poor stupid people don't have to spend their hard earned money on bail and fines.

This is TOO Funny!

Yup, you have to admire "Yankee Ingenuity", Stenfmly, and you're right Sourdough, I can't wait for the movie, but in the meanwhile, as Armorin said, we need LaFlamme to write a more detailed account for us.

He's a very talented writer and the mental picture that he paints is the next best thing to seeing the video.

I'll bet video of this arrest would go "viral" on YouTube!



I'm not allowed in Waterville anymore, and haven't been since the incident.
