New Jersey art dealer, George Wieschenberg of Lambertville, was sentenced to six years of prison for being a marijuana “farmer.”

According to MSNBC, Wieschenberg, pleaded guilty to “operating a marijuana production facility,” in which he grew marijuana plants, said State Attorney General Anne Milgrim.

Back in October of 2007, New Jersey State Police officers saw large marijuana plants growing alongside Rosemont Ringoes Road.

Investigators claim to have witnessed Wieschenberg watering his plants and removing leaves.

Wieschenberg rented a house and became a marijuana farmer on the wooded Delaware Township property.

After leaving his rental property he returned regularly to manage and water his plants.

Wieschenberg pleaded guilty back on January 25 at Superior Court in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
