If left alone in a healthy environment, it can proliferate very quickly. But I'd say somebody seeded it a while back. I'm sure that person is quite proud now.

while the officer was pulling up pot plants he was stung 30 times by bees - so does that mean the bees were catching a buzz??

Thankfully, violent crime, fraud, and child abduction all took the day off so we could expend our police manpower on this important task.

Geez. Is this really that important? It was growing wild and we need to know this for what reason again?..... That's what I thought.

If I were one of those bees getting a buzz, I'd be stinging people takin' my s$$t too!!

Cannabis is one of the most benign chemicals we can ingest. Arresting nonviolent people for making a safer health choice in a medicinal/recreational drug is scandalous reefer madness.

Prohibition fuels corruption of public officials and injustice in our
courts. It incites terrorists by forcing senseless policy on other
countries. The black market supports despicable people who sell to children and who recruit them to sell to their peers. The statistics reveal that racism is epidemic in the drug war.

The cumulative effect of current policy is becoming obvious; while we police individual recreational and medicinal use of drugs, murderers and violent sexual predators roam free.

The tool we need to fight drug abuse is compassion. Treat nonviolent
abusers as patients not criminals.

All major religions believe that life is sacred. People of all faiths and goodwill can stand together for a
more just, science based and compassionate alternatives to the current senseless policy.

People have been growing pot in Indiana for decades, so I wouldn't be too quick to automatically blame the immigrants, of course, hoosiers seem to find it easier to live here if they have some minority to blame for everything.

Anyway, the marijuana that grows wild in Indiana, and I mean all over Indiana started out being planted by the U.S.Navy during World War I. They used it to make a superior rope, but it was a doomed project because the rope was being cut up by the pot heads to get high. So the project was abandoned, but like anything that grows, if you let it go, it goes wild, and that's what happened with Indiana's wild marijuana. Now there are lots of growers that take advantage of places people don't go much and they use those places to grow pot, but there is still a lot of Indiana Ditchweed scattered around, and that's what they found.
