A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to jail after posting videos of his basement marijuana-growing operation on YouTube. Kyle Berry of Auburn pleaded guilty to manufacturing a controlled drug. Police said the videos were posted anonymously last fall and show how to grow marijuana. But police said Berry’s face was reflected off a shiny surface and a package showed his name. WMUR-TV reports that Berry said he was growing the marijuana for his own use. Judge Marguerite Wageling said she was having a hard time believing that, but agreed with Berry’s lawyer that he was not a drug kingpin. Berry was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail, with four months suspended.
