Marijuana plant found growing outside North Augusta public housing development

  • Follow Crime & courts

Landscaping workers found a marijuana plant growing outside an apartment in Cameron Cove, a public housing development off West Five Notch Road in North Augusta, on Wednesday morning, according to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report.

The landscapers notified a maintenance supervisor, who placed the plant into a trash bag, according to the report. An officer was called to the scene and collected the evidence, which was sent to be destroyed. A woman living in the apartment near where the plant was found told the officer that she knew nothing about it, according to the incident report.

Well outdoors it is still in

Well outdoors it is still in the vegetative state-wait till fall for the buds and buzz. So now it pharmacologically has no cannabinoids-so it isn't even a drug. Maybe this person is growing it as a gift for the President who has admitted to his pot smoking.LOL. One plant can yield from a quarter to half a pound of pot-sativa not indica. I had a room mate (for a short period) at UGA who was a member of the Athens Pot Growing Association (you gotta be kiddin-NO!). Needless to say it wasn't my bag (no pun intended) and at that time I wanted to go to Medical School so I wouldn't take the chance. Actually the fellow was really bright and he did teach me alot about the herb. I wonder what happened to him. Probably a professor at UGA now.:)LOL> Gosh that over 40 years ago. He could even be dead by now the more I think about it. Well he should be well preserved-pickled from the inside out. Gosh what if they cremate em. He'd leave more than his carbon footprint wouldn't he?

A true story. I owned a

A true story. I owned a townhouse at Forest Hills Racquet Club and a visitor asked why I had an mj plant growing by my back deck.
I had no idea what the large plant was and was waiting to see....
He pulled it up and I was brokenhearted...
My assumption was that someone (?) had rolled one and let some seeds fall.
