Clearwater man accused of operating marijuana grow house — again

CLEARWATER — Acting on a tip, Clearwater police detectives arrested a man they say was operating a marijuana grow house in his back yard.

John Haring, 45, of 1949 Byram Drive, was charged with cultivation of marijuana Tuesday night after detectives went to his house and got his consent to search his property.

Police say they discovered 149 marijuana plants in various stages of growth inside a large utility shed in Haring's yard. The shed was used solely for the purpose of cultivating marijuana, according to authorities. Police seized the plants and growing equipment.

Haring was arrested in connection with cultivation of marijuana in October 2007 at the same address.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
