More strange objects, according to the deputies, were discovered in the teen's room. More marijuana was allegedly for sale, as well as scales, lighters, grinders, sweets, and wraps related to cannabis use, according to the cops. Additionally, the cops seized 12 sizeable marijuana plants that were hidden in what appeared to be a greenhouse in the backyard.

You must be 15 years of age or older to purchase weed. No coming in!! Knock!" read the poster.
