CORPUS CHRISTI -- What was thought to be a pot farm in a city park turned out to be just horse mint!
Around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, a teenager riding through Waldron park out in Flour Bluff spotted what he thought were hundreds of marijuana plants.
And police must have assumed the same thing because they spent an hour pulling up about 400 plants and filling several garbage bags with the weeds.
But, when they got back to the police station and ran some tests it turned out the suspected pot plants were just a fairly common type of weed called 'horse mint.'
