Grand Jury To Review Marijuana Case Evidence

It will apparently be up to a grand jury to decide whether a Putnam County woman will be charged with illegally growing marijuana in pots on her back deck.  The sheriff's department says they investigated a case on Shipley Road after receiving a tip that someone there was growing marijuana.  Authorities say they found a man at the home, who allegedly gave them permission to look around. That search turned up four containers with marijuana plants in them ranging in size from two inches up to approximately six inches in height.  The report says the woman allegedly admitted to growing the pot as "an experiment," and told officials that someone had been prowling around her property lately and that she believes that prowler is the one who reported her.  Authorities say they'll take the case to the grand jury after consulting with the District Attorney.
