AMHERST, Mass. — The Massachusetts National Guard and State Police reportedly joined forces to seize a single marijuana plant from an 81-year-old woman.
On September 21, a military-style helicopter and police arrived at Holcomb's home, entered her backyard and cut down the plant, the Daily Hampshire Gazette reports.
Holcomb was not home at the time, but her son and daughter were. The paper reports that Holcomb did not have a medical marijuana card. Police said the plant was in plain view.
Holcomb told the paper that she feels like her civil rights were violated and said she's ready to stand up in the case.
