HOOSICK, N .Y. (AP) - State police say they’ve charged two upstate New York men with unlawfully growing marijuana after 200 pot plants were found growing in a rural town on the Vermont border.

Troopers say an eradication effort involving the state police aviation unit discovered the plants growing in the northern Rensselaer County town of Hoosick, 30 northeast of Albany.

Police say they issued appearance tickets to a 25-year-old man and a 31-year-old man, both from Hoosick.
