ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities say an Ashland man was arrested after investigators found his medical marijuana site had hundreds of pounds of marijuana more than allowed.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/yAM8Hh ) that police seized 137 pounds of usable marijuana and 306 pounds of dried, unprocessed marijuana on Thursday and arrested 59-year-old Stephen Mark Granach on drug charges.

Police said he told them the house was a grow site for eight medical marijuana cards. They said that would allow the operation 12 pounds.

Investigators said they learned about the grow site after a traffic stop in which state troopers seized two pounds of marijuana that had come from the Ashland place.
