Florida Man Shows Police His Marijuana Plants, Gets Arrested

Playing

For some reason, Arthur Carracino thought it was a good idea to show police where he grew his marijuana plant.

The 65-year-old met officers outside of his home, wearing nothing but a blue Speedo and an unbuttoned flannel shirt. Police body cameras caught the entire bizarre interaction.

"You gotta smoke a bowl with me,” Carracino can be heard saying at one point.

An officer responds, “I can't.”

Carracino replies, “Oh, I know, you're on duty.”

While recreational marijuana is illegal in Florida, medical marijuana is not.

Authorities can also be heard asking Carracino if he has a marijuana card, and he replies, "Yeah, yeah I do, I'm working on it. I have the card."

Police arrested Carracino and charged him with growing and cultivating marijuana.

Carracino was taken to Flagler County Jail and held on $1,500 bond.
