Newaygo County Man Sentenced For Planning To Grow, Sell Marijuana

A man will spend more than three years in prison for planning to make and sell marijuana.

Deputies in Newaygo County found a pole barn on North Pine Road filled with marijuana plants in October of 2014.

They seized more than 780 pounds of harvested marijuana and more than 800 plants growing in a nearby field.

The barn and the field were part of a 160 acre estate.
