“City of Powell workers recently discovered a different kind of “weed” sprouting up in a couple of city planters: marijuana plants.
Powell Police Chief Roy Eckerdt suspects someone slipped marijuana seeds into the city planters some time ago.
Amid the other plants and flowers growing in the pots, city workers unknowingly watered and cared for the cannabis plants for a period of weeks before discovering a couple on the afternoon of June 29, Eckerdt said.
“They recognized what it was once everything started to leaf out,” he said.
City Parks and Recreation Superintendent Del Barton said the plants were difficult for his seasonal workers to distinguish at first.” – The Powell Tribune
‘Seriously Bob, doesn’t it smell like one of them gondolas at Jackson Hole?’ Straight up love when stories like this come up on the feed. Some stony prankster planted a ton of weed plants along Powell, WY’s main street and goes down as a high school LEGEND!
The Powell Tribune is reporting that police removed the Cannabis plants after they were discovered by city employees. Unaware of the plants existence, those same employees unknowingly raised the pot plants until the leaves gave the gag up. Police joked with the ladies responsible for watering the planters, claiming they could be charged with possession. They later disposed of the extracted plant matter.
