Pot found growing in Henefer

A roughly eight-inch marijuana plant was found growing at a residential construction site near East Henefer Road July 7 at 9:34 a.m., the authorities said.

"We’re thinking some contractor, employee or construction worker was rolling a smoke and lost a seed, and it happened to be the right time of year," said Josh Wall, a spokesman for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. "It may be a sterile marijuana plant where it wouldn’t actually produce buds It’s still illegal to possess."

There are no suspects in the case.

"It was just growing up against the foundation It was new construction," Wall said. "The work was done months ago and there were multiple people through the area."

Marijuana isn’t often found growing outdoors in Summit County, Wall explained.

"Marijuana tends to grow more wildly in the south where they have a milder climate," he said.
