Man arrested after posting video of marijuana plants on YouTube

By Morgan Cox,

William Bradley, 46, is now facing charges that include possession of narcotics with intent to sell and operating a drug factory.

The Westbrook, Connecticut man posted a video on YouTube which showed his substantial collection of marijuana plants. In the video, Bradley gives his full name and his P.O. box address for anyone who is interested in donating to him. This made it easy for authorities to find him.

Upon arrival, police found two pounds of pot, hashish, cocaine, and oxycodone. It was noted that this is not Bradley's first encounter with the law. He was arrested in 2008 for possession of over 10 pounds of pot.

Along with the drugs, over $1000 cash was also discovered.

According to the New York Daily News, investigators found that Bradley was operating his "drug factory" out of a storage unit near his home.

He stated that he is upset that his doctors will not prescribe marijuana for his treatment and he has made clear that he will not give up.

"I will not stop fighting, because I know in my heart of hearts I'm right," he said.

Yahoo! News added that the man suffered a head injury from a motorcycle accident only a week before the video was posted online, which could be one of the reasons for the release.

Most of Bradley's belongings were confiscated during the raid of his home, but police are still on the search for the marijuana garden that triggered the investigation.
