Police seize pensioners' giant pot plant
Police have seized a giant marijuana plant from an elderly couple who unwittingly bought it at a car boot sale.
The couple were shocked to find that their carefully tended shrub was in fact a gigantic cannabis plant.
Police officers in Bedford said it was the biggest plant they had ever seen, reports the Daily Mail.
Bedfordshire Police took to Twitter to comment on their find and post a photo of the huge bush growing in the suburban garden.
The tweet from Bedford Borough's local policing team read: "Seized today. Elderly couple bought shrub at car boot sale, tended carefully - biggest cannabis plant we had seen!"
what do you think?
I'm very surprised it's got any leaves on it, if that's what people use. It's also the biggest marijuana plant I've ever seen. I've only seen them on the news on the television. It's virtually the size of their entire garden.
Are you serious?! Tee hee.
Growing outside does work. As long as u hav a good summer. Not very strong tho. And it the buds u smoke not the leaves.
Now that's what you call a pot plant.
bought unknowingly-oh yeah. You can see the hash burner against the wall!
The Hash Burner your referring to is infact a Furnace Bin. Douche!
The comment you're replying to was intended as a joke. Douche!
I thought it was quite funny. "Douche" is such a grim insult...
See what happens when you cut the pensions!!
Pensioner to cop: ' medicinal mate, medicinal.'
