Marijuana Discovered Growing in Braintree Business

The following info was supplied by the Braintree Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Braintree police found a marijuana growing operation inside a closed business on Adams Street Sunday night.

Officers were investigating what they thought might have been a break-in at the business late on Sept. 16 when they discovered two men and rooms being used to grow, air out and cut marijuana, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.

Scott A. Nowell, 48, of Everett and Richard P. McCreedy, 46, of Cambridge were charged with with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, manufacture of marijuana and violation of the drug free school zone.

An additional person may be charged, Jenkins said, adding that the name of the business is not being identified at this time.

Neither Nowell or McCreedy work for the business, Jenkins said.

One room was being used to cut up and hang the buds, and the other to grow the weed. "This second room was closed off with plastic and had ventilating fans, grow lamps and dehumidifiers," Jenkins said.

Talk to your children! Kids can ask some tough questions but those concerning prohibition are actually fairly easy to answer. Be straightforward: Explain concisely just how the unconscionable acts of parasitic prohibitionists at all levels of our bi-partisan police-state have raised gang warfare to a level not seen since the days of alcohol bootleggin­g; ­ Explain how these unconscionable prohibitionists have creating a prison-for­-profit synergy with evil drug lords and terrorists; How they were able to remove many of our cherished and important civil liberties; How they've ensured that many previously unknown and contaminate­d drugs keep appearing on our streets, in our schools, and even in our prisons; How they've overcrowd­ing the courts and prisons, making it increasing­ly impossible to curtail the people who are really hurting and terrorizing­ others; And how they've helped to evolve local street gangs into transnatio­nal enterprise­s with intricate power structures that reach into every corner of society, and with significant social and military resources at their disposal. Finally, our children need to know that It's always possible to prevent a dire situation turning into an irreversible and very bleak one; kindly explain to them what our very wise forefathers did back in 1933! Educate, regulate, and tax!

Hey, I agree 100% with your comment. It's shame that that conservative d-bags and the pharmaceutical lobby have managed to crush any hopes of the U.S, public has of legally enjoying the vast benefits of marijuana and hemp. Apparently, it's OK for you purchase as much alcohol and cigarettes to kill yourself, but marijuana is off limits. Also, where can I get a copy of your book?

why stop at legalizing marijuana? legalize crack, meth, heroin, coke, prostitution. tax all that stuff too.. only makes sense, right?

@Tyler Seguin... Makes perfect sense to me. The folks that are going to use those drugs are already using them. Prostitution? Why not?
