A Connecticut man has been arrested after he posted a YouTube video of himself in a marijuana garden during which he happens to mention his name and address.

William Bradley, 46, was previously arrested in 2008 and charged with operating a drug factory.

In the viral clip, Bradley asks people to donate money so that he can give the marijuana away to sick people that need it. Bradley mentions that he has terminal cancer but that has not been confirmed.

After searching a storage bin controlled by Bradley, authorities seized more than two pounds of marijuana, more than 20 grams of hashish, two bags of cocaine, four Oxycodone pills, $1,017 in cash and drug paraphernalia.

"Welcome to my beautiful garden," Bradley said in the video.

"I'm growing this medicine for myself because, like I said, I do have terminal cancer. It's something that I've been dealing with for several years now, and it's always a struggle. This medicine really helps. As you can see, God has gifted me with an abundance and it's more than I need so I want to take the extra and give it to people that need help."

Bradley was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of hashish with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a drug factory.

"Help me give this away if you can, maybe have a fundraiser, go to your church or synagogue or mosque or organization or school, or anywhere, and start a collection so that we together can help people, help people that need this medicine and get it to the right people."

"Don't let me sell it, so that children get a hold of it because I don't want people to buy this and then end up selling it to children," he said. "I think that's ridiculous. Let's get it to the right person. I don't need the help, but I want it. I don't want to be a criminal. I don't want to have to sell this."
