Just Say No to Bass!

A Maine man grows some weed.
Man gets caught growing weed.
Man gets fined $250 for growing weed.
During the raid police find ponds stocked with bass.
Man gets fined $1,000 for illegal fish stocking.
"I can understand why they'd fine him stiffly for the fish, because bass are aggressive and would go after trout if the ponds flooded into other waters, but $250 for the pot?" Oxford County Sheriff's Cpl. Chancey Libby asked Thursday afternoon by phone in Paris.
