I know of someone who had that happen to his crop of Japanese maple trees. He ended up getting a big check from the county.

Seems a bit overboard. Did they just do this because they can?

If you're not sure some plant is marijuana or not, find another cop who can tell so you won't make an expensive fool of yourself.  Leaf shape is actually not its most defining characteristic.  The almost unnatural bright green color and distinctive stench make it easy to identify a marijuana patch before even getting close enough to see the leaves.

When I was in high school a family friend a few houses over who worked for PBS (and had a pet chimp and small monkey) made a set of MJ identification cards. It contained a laminated MJ leaf as well as various other descriptors. He made a set of them for the Mass. cops and gave one to me. I don't see how anyone could mistake MJ for Hibiscus.  Really?

 

Their daughter was a few years older than me and when she left for Stanford she bought me the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Odd, as I had very little interaction with her. But I was touched.  Shout out to Edna.  Thanks kid.

Yeah, Mid 60's. Long before the movies came out.

 

Difficult at best to make movies out of LotR.

 

OTOH, social media has done a good job supplanting the Eye of Sauron.

I was an insurance agent for a long time, and I wouldn't dream of jumping to the conclusion that a plant growing in a policy holder's yard was a drug. That's insane. I've reported unoccupied houses that were insured as if they were occupied, even then, the company wanted a picture of a disconnected electric meter before they would do anything. Other than that, I never checked on anything unless I was asked to. There are all kinds of mind-altering plants that people grow in flower beds for their appearance. Vinca, for instance, Or they could be growing castor plants. An insurance agent might even mistake them for mj.  http://www.gettyimag...stor bean plant

Castor Beans - that's another one that will drag out the Three Letter Agencies. One could make ricin which is a very potent neurotoxin from castor beans.

But it's the coating on the beans that's poisonous. The inside - actual bean, and the oil don't contain ricin. Took more than one person, right? But no stories about these heroes who discovered ricin and where it comes from. :D

 

I thought the big patch of the castor plants looked a lot like a big patch of mj plants.  Oh, and No Such Agency doesn't get upset about the plants - they grow wild in many tropical areas. I think they would get to wondering about the manufacture of ricin gas. I assume there are specific chemicals involved. Maybe Amazon sells them. :D

When you're out of hibiscus, and you're thinking of smoking the lowbiscus-- that is rock bottom.
