Police this weekend discovered marijuana plants growing outside a court in the NSW mid north coast of Australia.
Deemed a “prank” by someone who wanted to poke fun at Australia’s justice system the plants were quickly removed and no harm was done.
The plants were discovered after several witnesses reported the marijuana growing in the front garden of the Bellingen Court House in New South Whales on Wednesday afternoon.
When all was said and done 60 seedlings were removed from the property, all of which were believed to be marijuana producing seeds.
Speaking to the APP a police spokesman said:
“Police believe someone has just dropped the seedlings as a joke.”
No arrests have been made at this time and it would likely be hard to prosecute someone who plants the seeds with no intention of harvesting them.
