OCALA - A 46-year-old Ocala man was arrested Saturday night after police discovered a marijuana grow operation in his house.
Mark Weiner, who is a quadriplegic, was charged with cultivating and possessing marijuana and paraphernalia.
Marion County Sheriff's Office deputies received a call informing them of the grow house at 7125 S.W. 103rd St. Road.
Deputy Joseph Tussey wrote in a report that Weiner told him where the marijuana was and that it was an experiment.
Weiner allegedly led the deputy to another room, which had a tank containing lights and six marijuana plants more than a foot tall.
Weiner also reportedly showed the deputy a bag with nearly 40 grams of marijuana inside, two bongs and about 50 marijuana seeds.
According to the report, Weiner told the deputy his caregivers are his arms and legs and do as he asks.
