Sheriff's Bust Legal Pot-Grower-Must Pay Back $210,000



A man jurors acquitted of multiple marijuana felonies has sued the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office after his 42 plants were destroyed, according to a lawsuit recently filed in 8th Judicial District Court.

Denver lawyer Rob Corry said his client expects to receive $5,000 per plant (totaling $210,000), based on what law enforcers have testified a marijuana plant is worth, in addition to attorney fees.

Kaleb Young, 34, had been growing the plants in a Wellington home in compliance with Colorado’s medical marijuana laws and during a warrant search in September 2010 had shown deputies paperwork authorizing him to do so, according to the lawsuit.

Young was arrested, and his plants, raw marijuana and equipment were among items taken during the search. He  had been under surveillance for five months after deputies followed up on a tip, according to filings in the criminal court case.

The case went to trial, and Young was acquitted of all charges in November 2011.

  6. Even killer, blow your mind kush wouldn't be that pricey... but the grower didnt claim that... the "law enforcers" did, when they were trying to prosecute him...they had placed an inflated value on the weed to make it a bigger deal and now its biting them solidly in the ass.
