Recently discovered cache of plants, initially pegged by officials speaking to local news as “one of the largest marijuana plant seizures in the police department’s history,” turned out to be a relatively common prairie plant known as horse mint.

    WTH – Nothing smells like cannabis. You can smell a crop (downwind) from a considerable distance.

    If they do not know what cannabis smells like how can they enforce prohibition? I wonder how many times stuff like this has gone unreported?

    From the Texas Gazette: On a midnight raid, Texas police arrested a colony of marauding feral cats for cultivating and consuming what was thought to be cannabis; it turned out to be catnip.

    Hello Weed Blog! Here is important news you are not reporting!! Chris Williams of Montana has been sentenced to 5 years in federal prison for simply following state guidelines as a Medical Marijuana Grower. You guys are dropping the ball in failing to report this important news. Put down that joint!!!

    Well apparently a rerun. But some stories are timeless. I still find the video of the idiot DEA agent shooting himself in the foot while lecturing about gun safety to a class room filled with schoolchildren to be very entertaining. If you haven’t seen it, or even if you have: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeGD7r6s-zU

    Ha ha; we have a weed around here that smells like cannabis and it looks somewhat like the ruderalis strain. Texas cops, you are welcome here anytime. hahah

    If you can’t tell the difference between a seraded star leaf and a normal leaf that’s only 80% if plants then wow… Poor officers.. low IQ.

  • moldy

    That’s why we can’t grow hemp.

  • Paulita Selene

    Hahaha shitheads would be freaking out ..We have tons of hemp growing in the ditches and fields around here. Remnants of WW2..It’s illegal as hell to own it but the farmers don’t go cut it down either..lol

    Horsemint is for horses not jackasses?

  • nah, it was pot they pulled up, it just wasn’t pot they turned it

  • Jetdoc

    It just don’t get no better than this… No… they’re not rednecks in Texas, they’re just idiots! Horse Mint looks NOTHING like Marijuana and grows WILD in the Southwest. I’ve got some of that in my backyard right now. They’re a bitch to kill. But I’m glad those Sherrif’s Deputies PULLED 400 of them from the park. The Groundskeeper will be REALLY happy they did that. He’d been trying to KILL them for a MONTH! Whoever made the call that it was Marijuana, should be SUSPENDED for being so stupid!

  • Todd

    Idiots what else can ya say

  • Maybe if they’d do a little research these idiots could figure out a pot plant looks like. Idiots!

  • Jake Ramsey

    Hey look, the police actually did something useful, even if it was on accident.

  • dave

    well, if this is the case, time to start calling the cops on every 3-5 leafed plant i see out here in good ol’ florida. soon enough we’ll waste so much tax money, they’ll HAVE to legalize x’D fucking idiot cops.
