    Default Huge cannabis plant grown by elderly couple seized

    Police stunned by elderly couple's huge cannabis plant

    updated 9:08 PM EDT, Tue October 9, 2012


    Bedford police posted this photo of the bush on Twitter, described as the "biggest cannabis plant" we've seen.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    • British police: Elderly couple unknowingly cultivated cannabis plant in garden
    • Officers said it was "biggest cannabis plant we had seen"
    • Police picture posted on Twitter shows fully grown shrub with thick foliage




    London (CNN) -- British police have decided not to press any charges against the elderly couple who had been unknowingly cultivating a huge cannabis plant in their garden.

    The plant was seized Monday in Bedfordshire, central England. The police later posted a picture on Twitter with comments: "Elderly couple bought shrub at car boot sale," adding that it was the "biggest cannabis plant we had seen!!"

    The police picture posted on Twitter shows a fully grown shrub with thick foliage in the front garden.

    Marijuana as medicine

    A police spokeswoman told CNN: "The plant was mistakenly bought by the elderly couple. We will not be pressing any charges. We have seized it and will dispose it." She also said that unlike what has been reported in some newspapers there was no "raid."' "The property was not raided," she said.

    The police tweet, however, led to many comical reactions including on newspapers sites that carried the story. A Mail Online reader commented: "Don't buy 'pot' plants at car boot sales! Simples."

    Cannabis is classified as a Class B drug in Britain under the Misuse of Drugs Act. The maximum penalty for supplying or producing cannabis is 14 years imprisonment and/or unlimited fine.

    The cannabis plant has psychoactive compounds with mood and behavior-altering properties. The plant is used both for making recreational drugs and medicine. Organized crime gangs have often used in-house cannabis farms to produce the high-strength "skunk" version of the drug.

    haha. I wonder how the cops found out about it. Some pesky neighbor probably reported it.

    Well, Colorado may legalize marijuana entirely (not just medical) next week. Its on the ballot as a constitutional amendment for any 21 and over.

    My dad set up the officers' tent under one the size of a tree during some army exercises. He didn't know until much later why his soldiers were snickering.

    If that is the biggest pot plant those cops have ever seen then that is damn shame. When I was young, we would wander throught the woods and see some that were huge. A lot of cops don't really even know what they look like. My friend's grandma got accused of growing pot plants in her backyard; turned out to be bamboo.

    Won't make much difference though. Even here in MI where we legalized medical marijuana, the Feds still come by and raid the clinics and shut down operations. Doesn't matter how many local govts. legalize the stuff, if the Feds keep it illegal there's nothing to stop them from making arrests.

    Yes it does matter because that is exactly how prohibition ended. States removed the ban on alcohol and/or stopped enforcing the prohibition law. The Feds can't police everyone.
