The Daily Inter Lake reports authorities discovered the plants on a porch and in nearby greenhouses when responding to a disturbance at the home near Marion on Wednesday. They obtained a search warrant that day and confiscated the plants.

The law limits the number of plants a caregiver may possess at six per patient.

Authorities did not name the caregiver.
