Gardening enthusiasts often transform their balconies or small spaces into lush green havens. However, not all plants are permissible. In a recent incident in the United Kingdom, a man found himself in legal jeopardy due to his garden plants resembling cannabis—a substance prohibited for cultivation in the country. Similar situations may arise elsewhere, including India. If you have such plants in your garden, be cautious—the police might take action.

The Wisbech Incident

Police officials from Wisbech, United Kingdom, visited a house on Duke Street for an inspection. There, they encountered a peculiar plant in the garden—one that violated the country’s laws. Suspecting it to be cannabis, they promptly seized 12 plants. The Cambridgeshire Constabulary shared the story on their official Facebook page, urging people to steer clear of such plants.

The police department humorously captioned a photo of the garden: “Do you love gardening? Well, someone must be in Duke Street, Wisbech, as the Neighbourhood Policing Team stumbled upon a lovely green space this morning. The plot was well laid out, and items were growing. However, upon closer inspection, we noticed a funny-looking plant we’d seen somewhere before. As Alan Titchmarsh once said, ‘Gardening is, apart from having children, the most rewarding thing in life.’ Unfortunately, for this unknown gardener, it won’t be as rewarding—your 15 cannabis plants now reside in our drug property. Enquiries into the matter continue.”

Remember, even a green thumb can lead to legal trouble if the wrong plants find their way into your garden.
