Yo, dawg; I heard you like potted plants, so I potted your plant so you can smoke that potted pot while you pot pot plants.
Council officials in Newport are trying to discover who planted cannabis in flower pots put out to brighten up the city.
More than 20 of the illegal plants were discovered nestling amongst begonias and petunias in the street flower displays.
But by the time police were told and went to examine the specimens they had already been harvested.
The council said it was checking CCTV footage to find the culprits.
“I had never seen cannabis growing in the wild before so it was crazy to see it,” said local businessman Dean Beddis, who made the discovery.
It’s a serious issue and we will be informing the police”
“It’s actually rather a beautiful plant and stood out wonderfully. But they have gone now. I don’t know who took them.”
