A Hopkinsville doctor was arrested Saturday and charged with growing and selling marijuana.
Deputies with the Christian County Sheriff’s office executed a search warrant at the 15253 North Madisonville Road residence of 58-year old Doctor Gloria Staples Friday evening and arrested her Saturday.
The arrest card says police found more than five marijuana plants in a “grow room” in the upstairs of the residence. Other equipment commonly associated with the growing, selling and smoking of marijuana were also allegedly found. Those items included rolling papers, pipes and bongs.
Doctor Staples, who runs a practice on North Drive, was charged with cultivating marijuana, trafficking in marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She was booked into the Christian County Jail and released the same day on bond.
