MILLVILLE, N.J. - Maybe this is why they call it High Street. Police confirm the odd-looking plants they pulled last week from a flower basket in Millville's business district were indeed marijuana.
The plants were discovered by a passer-by. Police responded to the scene with a ladder and confiscated the 3-foot-tall plants, which were growing in a basket hanging from a lamp post.
The city's parks and recreation department, which tends to the baskets, says it has no idea how the pot plants got there.
Uhh... Business District?? Again with the irony... Maybe that towns formal 'businesses' aren't doing so hot, so the ever clever 'businessmen' have ventured into the horticulture industry, in the hopes of developing a second form of income via cash crop... No, not that kind....
Or maybe the seeds were deposited via bird droppings from another cash crop within the area.
Either way, still ironic and hilarious.
