|Bryan Hartman: Front Yard Grower|
By Ron Crumpton
It is true that some people are born to greatness, while others have greatness thrust upon them, but some people are born stupid, while others have stupidity thrust upon them. If you are Bryan Hartman of St. Cloud, Florida, you must have been two times lucky.
Generally, when authorities are alerted to a suspected marijuana grow, it is located deep in the woods, or a residential home is being used as a grow house; just how often do they receive a call telling them that someone is growing marijuana in their front yard?
According to the Osceola County Investigative Bureau, when they arrived on the property agents found 17 marijuana plants growing in the front yard. Plants ranging from two to seven feet tall were found growing, in planters, in the front yard and could “easily be seen from the roadway.”
Hartman was arrested, charged with cultivation of cannabis, and booked in to the Osceola County Jail.
This leaves one question; what, the hell, was he smokin’?
