The RCMP in Happy Valley Goose Bay brought down another drug grow operation over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Boyd Merrill is a Media Relations Officer with the RCMP in St. John’s.
He says 54-year-old Theodore "Ted" Mesher was arrested and charged for production of a controlled substance.
The RCMP seized numerous marijuana plants in various stages of growth during a search of Mesher’s home.
Mesher claims the plants were for personal use.
Merrill says that even when drugs are grown for personal use, they are still illegal.
Mesher will appear in court on October 23, 2010.
