Remember a few blogs back I talked about how fun it was to get a new plant from a friendly neighbor? Maybe I should add that it is helpful to at least know who you are getting them from, what you're looking at and do some research. Here's an article I saw that made me laugh..Tomorrow I'll tell you why.(Our thanks to AP News Feed)
Pa. grandma says she was duped by stranger's seeds
UNIONTOWN, Pa (AP)- A southwestern Pennsylvania grandmother says she's no marijuana grower, just a woman who wanted something that would look pretty next to her tomatoes.
A Fayette County jury cleared 67 year old Alberta Kelley of drug possession and manufacture charges on Wednesday after she told them she simply tossed a handful of seeds into her garden after a bearded stranger gave them to her.
Connellsville police charged Kelley a year ago after receiving a tip about her garden. Investigators found seven well-cultivated four foot marijuana plants behind her home.
But Kelley claimed she didn't know what she was growing. She said she had been given the seeds by a stranger in a pointy hat who told her that they were flower seeds. Kelley tells WTAE TV that to her "weeds are weeds".
