130 marijuana plants found in Md. 'office'

By The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown

Authorities say a Sharpsburg, Md., man has been charged with drug offenses six months after about 130 marijuana plants were found in a building in a strip mall in Maugansville.

Thirty-two-year-old Chad Frobauck surrendered Monday after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

He was released Tuesday on $35,000 bond.

According to court documents, in August, authorities found the marijuana plants in a building that was leased for a computer business.

The records say fluorescent lights were positioned over numerous small marijuana plants, and there were a fanning system and timers for the lights.

I don't appreciate my tax dollars going towards ruining the lives of pot smokers. People overdose and die on alcohol yet nobody can OD on weed. Stop the madness. This man is less a threat to society than the ABC board of MD.

Wow, all of that for something that grows naturally. It boggles the mind that instead of tracking down MS-13 gang members, solving murders, or preventing terrorism; the conservative government wastes time, money and resources on this. Get over it and just legalize it!!!

Aww c'mon, everyone knows pot turns you into a raging, wild eyed loon who drives like a maniac and ruins women's lives.

Yes, stop going after white guys for growing pot. You got plenty of blacks and hispanics to go after. Stop trying to make the white guys look like criminals. We know thats just the blacks and latinos.

Actually, you could argue that you need a generous supply of cannabis, benzos, or some other mind control agents to withstand living in much of Maryland.

Mr. Frobauck was just doing his small entrepreneurial part to make living in the Old Line state more bearable for the rest of us.

Why not arrest knee-jerk race-baiters like red2million and ged0386, who just want to start a race war here?

Oh my god, fans and lights with timers?? Does Maryland have the death penalty? This guy should get executed every year for the rest of his life!
