Obviously, everyone is interested in tax breaks, but you shouldn’t put yourself in legal jeopardy to get them. Weiming Liu has been accused of running a “large-scale marijuana operation” on a farm in Chesterfield, New York. It all started when Liu’s landlord put in a request for a “property-tax reduction” under New York’s Farmland Assessment Act. At first, the request was rejected. However, once the unnamed landlord appealed the decision, a “more detailed on-site inspection led to the discovery” of the weed operation. We’re talking 500 mature plants with a street value estimated at $750K…plus “1,000 seedlings aided by lighting & heating system to promote faster growth.” Liu was arrested during a traffic stop, and the landlord hasn’t been charged.
