Man Arrested After Posting Videos of His Illegal Grow to YouTube

In a world of countless YouTube videos on growing and cultivating cannabis, one man let his desire for stardom conquer common sense.

Las Vegas grower Jason Pelletier—also known as Buddynuggets78—was arrested after posting videos to YouTube bragging about his 12,000 watt grow room and showcasing his illegal grow operation with way more than medical marijuana laws would permit. The videos received millions of views, some of which were Las Vegas police officers who couldn’t quite believe that someone would be that stupid.

Pelletier was arrested and his plethora of videos taken down—and right when his star was starting to rise.
