Zero tolerance

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. - A 73-year-old man who was given the first civil marijuana ticket in a Vermont town says he had planted some seeds he found in a box and 'got spanked' by police after it grew into a pot plant. 

William Reynolds was issued a $200 civil ticket by St. Johnsbury police after authorities seized a potted 2 1/2-foot-tall marijuana plant from his Main Street apartment.
