Former Hollywood madam charged with growing marijuana
NEVADA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss is facing charges for growing marijuana without a license.
Authorities say they found nearly 400 marijuana plants at her Nevada home last week.
A sheriff's deputy stumbled upon it while searching for an unidentified wanted woman.
Fleiss told authorities she was growing the weed to sell to a cooperative in Las Vegas.
The NYE sheriff's office says Fleiss was not arrested because she had $200,000 worth of exotic birds at home and no one to care for them.
