Newport council gives away free cannabis in plant pots
WELCOME to Newport, South Wales, You’ll never bother to leave. There’s free marijuana.
Council officials in Newport have yet to speak to the tourism division in their investigation into how cannabis came to feature in the town’s flower pots brightening up the city centre.
Local shopkeeper Dean Beddis, spotted the weed among the petunias:
“I had never seen cannabis growing in the wild before so it was crazy to see it. It’s actually rather a beautiful plant and stood out wonderfully. But they have gone now. I don’t know who took them. Either the council spotted them or some young type has spotted them and put them in his garden.”
Yeah. It’ll be one of those, ahem, young types.
Newport councillor Rhys Hutchings, member of the band Goldie Lookin’ Chain, also points the finger and the youth:
“It’s either kids or the Newport underworld community – I’m pretty sure it’s not Alan Titchmarsh.”
It might be the Don…Monty Don?
