Huge Pot Busts In the Berkshires, Monson This Week

A massive illegal marijuana growing operation was discovered earlier this week in Western Mass.

Eversource sent a couple of workers out to house in the small Berkshire County of Savoy after noticing the address was racking a $10k a month electric bill. A Chinese man answered the door and claimed he didn't speak English. When the workers said the needed to come in to check things out the man refused and then tried to stuff an envelope full of $100 bills into the workers pocket. The utility worker refused and that's when they decided they better get the cops involved.

Meanwhile, the DEA busted a major operation in Monson.

And as a bonus, here's a VERY old debate about legalization.
