James Daniel Garrish III was also charged with introducing plants into the park ecosystem, littering, trespassing and damaging real property, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of North Carolina. Garrish was named in an indictment filed on May 8, the release said. On the marijuana charge alone, Garrish faces a maximum sentence of five years and a $250 fine. A park ranger discovered the marijuana growing in a remote commercial fishing place known as Quork Hammock used by locals, said park chief ranger Boone Vandzura.
