Police Cut Down 400 Pot Plants, Then Realize it's Not Marijuana

Further proof that police aren't exactly experts on botany:

I suppose it's ok to laugh at this one, since nobody got shot. On the other hand, it's probably just a matter of time before a similar mistake results in someone getting a gun shoved in their face. Oh wait, it's already happened.

Wow

Didn't anyone have a t-shirt or black light poster to consult? There was testing involved? By testing, I assume they mean no one thought to google "pot plant" and click images before they pulled 400 weeds, then back at the station Patrolman Timmy figured it out. Good job, Patrolman Timmy, you can type and click. Nothing makes me feel safer than knowing that these morons drive around with guns.

Nations are possessed with an insane ambition to perpetuate the memory of themselves by the amount of hammered stone they leave ... One piece of good sense is more memorable than a monument as high as the moon. - Henry David Thoreau
