In a developing story, sources now indicate to HIGH TIMES that the owner/operator of Overgrow, Cannabisworld, Heaven's Stairway Seeds and Eurohemp has been arrested and has since been released. Earlier reports that suggested Overgrow's web servers may have been seized as part of an ongoing investigation have since been denied by sources close to the situation. Prior to these developments, Overgrow served tens of thousands of marijuana cultivators as a community-based website dedicated to practical advice and political advocacy. Overgrow contributers also frequently contributed to HIGH TIMES, including a monthly column of content culled from their online discussion boards.

As details continue to emerge in this case, readers are well advised to avoid all targeted websites and to continue to check for more information as it becomes available.
