SCRANTON -- Scranton police say they found 46 marijuana plants growing in the backyards of two homes on Alder Street.
That is right in the middle of a residential neighborhood on the city's south side.
One of the homes is vacant. Police say the man who lives on the other side admits he grows the marijuana, but strictly for medical use.
In Pennsylvania, that's illegal.
Stephen Richter was arrested and is now facing drug charges.
