Finding marijuana growing in

Finding marijuana growing in the roadside ditches isn't unusual. It's a weed and grows from Alaska to the equator. The marijuana scam is one of the craziest ever pulled on the public.

LOL, Brad! Perhaps we need a "nuisance flowerbed" ordinance. Maybe this is why Butch is upset about the Ministry's garden on the wrong lot.....

The best story along these

The best story along these lines, was when I worked in downtown Atlanta. Someone planted some marijuana in the flowerbed of the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Building. The State prisoners watered and fertilized them, just like the other flowers. Finally, someone figured it out, and then there were big gaping holes in the flowerbeds. It was a running joke for over a month. The ATF guys didn't seem to find the humor though...!!

This a funny story. It is

This a funny story. It is very likely to happen at any drug house. The users sort the seeds from the "good" stuff and then throw the seeds out. Whoops. They just so happened to take root and grow.

The cops have to protect

The cops have to protect their drug cartel clients. Can't have any American weed hitting the market. That would endanger their drug dealing buddies. EVERY time you pay your taxes they are used to hurt U.S. Join the National Taxpayers Union. Redirect your taxes away from destroying America as they are now, back to HELPING U.S. as claimed.
