Parish Council Accidentally Plants Cannabis Plants In Flowerbed

Parish Council Accidentally Plants Cannabis Plants In Flowerbed


A community group in Dorset unwittingly planted some cannabis plants in amongst their floral display of daffodils and chrysanthemums recently. It took a passerby’s keen eye to spot the ‘unusual’ plant peeking through!

Tray Veronica, saw the ‘interesting plants’ sticking out of the display whilst on the school run. She says: “I was driving to drop my daughter off and as I drove down New Road I saw the planter, being a gardener I always notice things like that. But as I looked over I thought ‘oh my god, is that what I think it is?’”

Yep. It was!

“When I drove past again I stopped to have a closer look and yes, it’s definitely cannabis. I was laughing all the way home,” she continued. “But at first there were six plants in there, now there’s only two. The first ones were so big, they were towering above the bedding plants. They absolutely thrived on that planter.”

Unaware of their blunder, the West Parley Parish Council proudly shared a picture of the planters to their Facebook page, to which one person commented: “Smokin’.”

Following an emergency council meeting on Wednesday, the council then released an update:

“On 20th July, the parish council was alerted to a report concerning one of the village’s floral displays, which suggested it may have been tampered with and amongst the flowers was a plant not part of this year’s schedule.

On the advice of the police, the plant was located, removed and has been secured by the parish council and arrangements are being made to pass it on to Dorset Police for identification and destruction.

An inspection has taken place of all the parish’s other planters, and this has not raised any further concerns.”

Tray says the whole thing was a huge misunderstanding, adding: “I hope the council can see the funny side. It is worth adding that all the planters around the village do look beautiful, they’ve done a great job.”
