KOKI FOX23 - Tulsa - Pot Plants Found at Police Station

The first marijuana plants found growing in Duluth, Minn., in about 10 years were thriving in public view-- in a planter outside a police station.

A reporter for the Duluth News Tribune head talk during the weekend about "something interesting" growing outside the West Duluth police substation, the newspaper reported Tuesday.

Unaware of what was so "interesting" about the dozen or so 6-inch high plants in the planter outside the front door of the station, Janna Goerdt plucked a leaf and took it back to the newspaper office with her.

Duluth City Gardener Tom Kasper confirmed the "weed" was marijuana Monday and took the news to the police Lt. John Beyer, who said the plants went unnoticed because nober ever uses the front entrance of the station, which is usually kept locked.

"The only thing I can say is somebody has a sense of humor," Beyer said.

Kasper said it's been about 10 years since marijuana has been found growing in northern Minnesota.

In 1990, a 3-foot-tall marijuana plant was found thriving in the Civic Center courtyard near City Hall.

    OMG, that's funny. It reminds me of the time I found a Cannabis plant growing on the UC Berkeley campus (quel shock, no?). I thought it was so funny, growing right on the banks of Strawberry creek that runs through campus, just steps away from our botany building.
    But I made the mistake of telling the graduate students in the Herbarium, and the one uptight Mormon guy got all uppity and went and ripped it out.
    While it isn't my cuppa tea, I say let pot-heads be pot-heads... I made a voucher of what was left and put it in the herbarium... interesting collection locality for some future scientist to ponder.
