Granny’s Green Gone Bye-bye!

Margaret Holcomb was forced to part with her single medical marijuana plant on Sept 21 in Amherst, MA after a military-style helicopter swooped down on the 81-year-old’s property to confiscate the illegal contraband.

Margaret’s son, Tim Holcomb, said that it was “pretty shocking” the way in which the National Guard and State Police entered her yard and hacked away at the plant which was concealed behind a raspberry patch. Holcomb stated that she was growing the plant for medicinal purposes, in an effort to alleviate her arthritis, glaucoma and aid in her night-time sleep.
