Winsted man has marijuana mural on his house


(Winsted-AP, Mar. 16, 2006 6:10 AM) _ Having marijuana in your house is illegal, but having marijuana on your house is apparently a legal gray area.

A Winsted man accused of have more than 100 marijuana plants in his home when he was arrested last year, has made a statement on the outside of his house.

Town officials say they're getting complaints about giant marijuana leaves Christopher Seekins spray painted on the outside of his house on High Street.

In October, police say they found 100 plants inside the house, along with grow lights, fertilizers and portable heaters. Police charged the 26-year-old man with cultivating marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

There are five marijuana plants painted in green on the western side of his white house and one on the eastern side.

Seekins says his paint job is an advertisement for the legalization of marijuana.


  • So I was sentenced on June 30th. The local police were ordered by the court to return my growing equiptment and fertilizer. I kindly stopped by on my way home from court to tell them the good news in person. I later called and left a message for the officer in charge of evidence, Kevin Kinahan. Kevin helped raid me on October 20 of 2005. Officer (931) Milhomens lied on the warrant appliction in violation of the good faith rule of the 4th amendment. The US Constitution was not upheld during my motion to dismiss and on court record the judge says I can not represent myself with the Constituion. I could have brought it to trial and faced 25 years with a 7 year manditory minimum sentence or taken the deal. Because the deal involved no jail time I did take it so that if any one else is robbed by police in the state of Connecticut for growing a non harmful plant they can use the judgement passed upon me to avoid jail time them selves. I hope to get my growing equiptment back this week. The police will pick up the papers form court on Monday. I was never called back after I left a message two days ago and am not sure if they believe me. Hope all is well, keep smoking.
