Oh, My. There are Weeds Growing in Britain's Flowerbeds

    Something doesn’t look right about these flowerbeds. It’s probably the fact that someone has planted cannabis plants in them – and they’re standing out like a sore thumb.

    The plants were spotted in the sleepy Hertfordshire town of Welwyn Garden City, and were put there by a secretive group called the Welwyn Garden City Cannabis Club. Speaking to the Welwyn Hatfield Times, one of the group explained that the stunt aimed to highlight the benefits that cannabis plants can offer.

    ‘We can confirm that the cannabis plants found in WGC town centre are not a one off their existence is no accident," the group revealed to the Welwyn Hatfield Times. "These plants are the work of local activists as part of a movement which believes cannabis should be available for medical and recreational use, that we utilise and legalise hemp and replace our polyplastics industry and fossil fuel dependency."

    The group also claimed that hemp "...has over 50,000 uses and benefits that most people are unaware of."

    "We are here to raise awareness of the medical benefits of cannabis and the dangers of legal and pharmaceutical drugs," group member Luna Tokes said.

    But it’s too late for any stoners rushing to Welwyn for a quick fix, as the plants have been removed by Welwyn Hatfield Council "to prevent any further confusion.'"

    50.000 uses ....

    Claims like This one make a joke out of The Cannabis Legalisations Campaign.

    As ridiculous as Reefer Madness.

    Just my view...

    we go swimming in the ocean, just outside of town and right beside the graveyard. The last few times I was there I could smell a very strong smell of weed. The first time I thought it was someone in a car but it keeps happening. There is a little garden/shrubbery before the entrance to the graveyard and I reckon there must be cannabis growing in there.

    I haven't been able to look as I always have a pack of kids with me and I don't want to leave them alone or take them with me rooting around in the bushes.

    I hope one day cannabis is allowed to grow anywhere!! They are beautiful plants that have a wealth of benefits and should be available to a society to the point that the plants are even used to decorate the streets!!
