NEW SCOTLAND, N.Y. – A 56-year-old man faces charges after police say he was growing cannabis and possessed marijuana.
The New York State Police Troop G BCI
arrested Lawrence Eaton, 56, who lives in the town of New Scotland on January
29, for unlawfully growing cannabis and possession of marijuana. The
