Overzealous Texas Cops Mistake Weeds for Weed

Dave Thier Contributor


(May 25) -- Triumph quickly turned to embarrassment for a group of police officers last week after what they thought was a major drug bust wound up amounting to a routine weeding operation.

Late Thursday night, KRIS-TV reports, police in Corpus Christi, Texas, received a call from a teenager who thought he had seen hundreds of pot plants while biking through a city park. Officers arrived on the scene believing they were dealing with a not-so-secret marijuana farm.


They spent about an hour pulling up, bagging and tagging around 400 plants. But when they took their haul back to the station, tests revealed that it was a common weed called horsemint.

Horsemint bears very little aesthetic similarity to marijuana and lacks the drug's distinctive odor.

Mike Hughes of marijuana enthusiast magazine High Times suspects police were so excited about the fact they were making a major drug bust that they forgot to check to see if the plants were actually drugs.

"Hysteria and ignorance have long been staples of the war on drugs. However, Corpus Christi police remind us that flat out buffoonery has its place as well," he wrote.

The officers' effort wasn't entirely in vain, however: Since horsemint has a tendency to spread quickly, the cops at least helped spare the park from a troublesome invader.

The estimated street value of the horsemint is $0.

I hope those guys don't get wind of my crop in my side yard. Looks a little like moss, but once they get it back to the station, they can run test it for the trial.

send them over here next, cjd. I've got invasive bermuda grass that looks a LOT like weed and maybe those guys can dig it up and haul it off. ;cool;

Wonder if they would mistake the poisin ivy in the bed on the north end of my house for coca and pull it for me?

I once called the police and reported my brother was storing dope in the pile of logs behind his house, then called him a week later and wished him a happy birthday and told him it was me that had all of his fire wood split for him.

So did they find out after they smoked the other 200 untagged plants? :p

Even funnier would be that guys planted it
thinking it was pot!

Pretty dumb joke in my books if that's what you want to call it. I don't know what's more dumb, the joke or a person that calls that a joke.............it's no secret I don't much care for cops, but I don't associate them being dumb enough to split wood looking for something inside a chunk of wood. :roll:bashhh:

Thats a pretty normal feeling of dirtbags I deal with on a daily basis. You see Sir after proudly serving my country for four years I am now into my fourteenth year working for the best K-9 unit in SC. Sorry if a little humor ruined your day. If you ever get to SC look me up I would love to meet you in person sometime, until then blow it out your bagpipe.
