Man literally fires up a fat one, sets bonfires to heat pot plants10/11/2012
Gardeners know that when the weather starts getting cold, it's hard on their prized plants. So who could blame Daniel Selmon for trying to keep his backyard marijuana crop warm, other than the Aurora (Ill.) Police Department. The budding (ahem) horticulturist set two bonfires in his yard to try to keep his weed from getting cold when the temperatures dropped over the weekend, but he apparently failed to consider that the flames leaping behind his house might attract some attention. A patrol officer discovered the fires — and more than 6 pounds of marijuana plants — and charged Selmon with felony possession of cannabis and misdemeanor production of cannabis. Next time, he should stick with potted plants instead of … yeah, you know. [Source]
