In this Nov. 14, 2012 file photo, a marijuana grower shows plants (not Fleiss') he is cultivating with some friends in Montevideo, Uruguay. The Uruguayan Congress is debating President Jose Mujica's proposal to fight organized crime by legalizing the production and sale of marijuana. A vote is expected late Wednesday, July 31, 2013 on the proposal to license growers, sellers and consumers, with a confidential registry to keep people from buying more than 40 grams a month. Anyone carrying, growing or selling pot without a license would face stiff penalties including long prison terms. (AP Photo/Matilde Campodonico, File)
Heidi Fleiss, the former madam, was busted for growing 392 marijuana plants, according to a report on Tuesday.
TMZ said that authorities raided the Nevada home of Fleiss, who was subsequently charged with marijuana possession.
Officials stumbled upon the grow-op on Aug. 7 as they were looking for another woman.
Fleiss admitted to growing the plants, but she said she was growing for a “cooperative in Las Vegas.”
TMZ reported that she does not have a license to grow marijuana.
Fleiss was not arrested, police said.
