Marijuana may be legal to smoke and grow in Washington, but not if you shoot somebody in the leg while growing it.

The Tacoma News Tribune is reporting four people are charged with growing and selling marijuana in Eatonville, after one of them shot his alleged business partner and pot distributor in the leg.

potThe Tribune reports Louis Bussanich, 64, allegedly shot his son’s friend in the leg as he tried to steal pot from an Eatonville marijuana farm.  Police say Bussanich had teamed up with his wife, his son, and his son’s friend, Scott Sheldon, 35, who would sell the pot.  But when Sheldon came to the property and asked for marijuana, Bussanich refused because Sheldon hadn’t paid for the last batch he’d taken.

The men got into a fist fight.  Bussanich grabbed a .22 caliber rifle and shot Sheldon in the leg as he was running away.

When police arrived, they found jars of marijuana, 256 pot plants and growing equipment.
