Slog It Blog It, Suburbia Has Gone To Pot!


That is one big weed say Molly The Wally!

Old couple caught growing pot by police.

An elderly couple have been busted by the police for growing cannabis after unknowingly buying the plant from a car boot sale. The police seized the bush as part of a drugs bust at the couple's home in Bedford on Friday. They said it was the biggest shrub they had seen to date. That was one hell of a weed the green thumbed oldsters managed to cultivate! The couple was shocked to find that their carefully tended shrub was in fact a gigantic cannabis plant. The couple had taken the pot plant home and given it pride of place in their garden. The shrub bloomed into an enormous plant, along the wooden fence. Wonder who grassed them up or was it planted on them? The police then posted pictures of the plant on twitter.  We can just see the tweet, ‘Twit grows hash which the police then trash. They were rooting out pot heads’. A police spokesman said the unnamed embarrassed couple had asked them to remove the picture from the site. It is not known whether the hapless pair will be charged for any drug related offences. Pity they didn’t sell it as it would give a whole new meaning to the words ‘Hedge Fund’. Far out man!

  3. Hi Molly, that's so far out, I off to the garden center to pick up this ever green shrub, not only is it good ground covering you can use in the kitchen and if you're out of smokes which daddy usually is, you can roll one. Happy gardening!

  13. It must have been quite a shock for these folks to have the police converge on their home! Maybe the couple can start a consulting business to advise would-be pot growers on how to nurture their plants so they reach immense proportions. Wrigs says a shrub is a shrub is a shrub--all equally suitable for lifting one's leg on. :-)

    P.S. Wrigs loves his spooky transformation, Molly!

  28. hey Molly,

    Great write-up! I think the couple should stand tall and proud. It is a plant that has been around for thousands of years and they did a fabulous job in growing it. They have nothing to be embarrassed about, except for the fact that some humans find the plant so scary! :->

    So, will they be growing Poppies next? BOL!

  31. Dear Molly,

    Is this a special plant? I don't know much about bushes except that they hold Birds and Pee Markings, and are sometimes good to hide in... That looks like a very good plant to hide in, in fact!

    Licks,

  32. LOL, yeah, yeah, that's what they all say - we are going to say it is for medicinal reasons for Dad when we grow our stash :)

  36. Molly, mummy has no need to read the paper anymore, she gets all the best news coverage from you instead :-)

  37. Mom used to live a place that grew hemp during WWII. So hemp grows everywhere. There isn't a lot of value in the plant for those hoping to get high because there is little THC in it. BUTT, it is still pot and there is a big market because it is cheap and easy to get so growers like to cut their good pot with this bad pot so they can make more money. Lots of grandmas in that town grow pot to supplement their incomes.

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  41. Would you believe this actually happened to my assistant's grandmother! Fortunately, her son found the plant before the police and disposed of the evidence. No jail time for grandma!

  43. This is funny but sad at the same time! I feel bad for the old couple if they really didn't know what it was.
