rawstory.com: Texas cops mistake actual weed for marijuana, spend hours doing yard work


Recommended Posts


Like the old song goes, one of these things is not like the other...

However, remind a police officer in Corpus Christi, Texas of those famed Cookie Monster lyrics and they're likely to give you an annoyed look.

That's because a 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 flower of little significance.

Texas officers ultimately spent hours laboring to tag and remove up to 400 plants from a city park, discovering only after a battery of tests that they had been sweating over mere Horse Mint, a member of the mint family -- effectively turning their ambitious drug bust into mere yard work.


That's one of those "want to get away" moments.

Need some free yardwork?

"Officer, officer!!! Hey what is that, pot? You should totally take this mower and weedwacker and put an end to that ****!"

Good to know if I'm driving through Corpus Christi and get stopped with weed in my car they may just dismiss it as the common lawn weed and let me right on by.
