Pot Plants, Assault Rifles Seized In Western Md.

WESTERNPORT, Md. (AP) — A Westernport man has been charged with drug and weapons violations after authorities say they seized 13 marijuana plants, two assault rifles and a handgun at his home.

Colby Nestor, 22, remained in jail Monday after a judge kept his bond at $45,000.

Allegany County police arrested Nestor on Sunday. They say they found the plants and guns in his home Saturday while responding to a tip about a possible growing operation.

Nestor is charged with manufacturing and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of a firearm while drug trafficking.

Assistant Public Defender David Schram is declining to comment on the case.

    Nearly 80% of Americans want pot legalized,
    and the same laws as alcohol applied .
    Instead of spending billions to stop pot,
    we could be taking in billions in tax revenue.
    Either way,I assure you,
    the same amount of pot will be consumed.

    And just what classifies it as an “assault rifle”? Inquiring minds want to know. It sounds to me like there were two semi-auto long guns which are not the same as an assault rifle. This reporting is shoddy at best. Can you deliver some additional details?
