A grenade launder as well as a number of other weapons and 30 marijuana plants were seized in a drug bust in Monmouth County last month, a result of an investigation into whether or not the home, located on Route 34, was the site of a marijuana grow operation. Charges included possession of more than 50 grams of marijuana, operation of a marijuana grow facility, possession of weapons while involved with drug distribution, possession of a sawed-off shotgun, and possession of a destructive device.
Drug and weapons seizures like these are the norm for New Jersey. Unfortunately, use and abuse of illicit substances as well as the use of illegal force in that process are par for the course in many neighborhoods.
