Texas cops mistake actual weed for marijuana, spend hours doing yard work

Like the old song goes, one of these things is not like the other...

However, remind a police officer in Corpus Christi, Texas of those famed Cookie Monster lyrics and they're likely to give you an annoyed look.

That's because a recently discovered cache of plants, initially pegged by officials speaking to local news as "one of the largest marijuana plant seizures in the police department's history," turned out to be a relatively common prairie flower of little significance.

Texas officers ultimately spent hours laboring to tag and remove up to 400 plants from a city park, discovering only after a battery of tests that they had been sweating over mere Horse Mint, a member of the mint family -- effectively turning their ambitious drug bust into mere yard work.

Awesome.
I thought drug education was given so officers could identify plants on sight?

Cop shouts, "You've got poppies growing in your garden!"

Home owner replies, "What? Those dandelions?"

Cop points to another plant, "Then why do you have marijuana?"

Home owner sighs, "That's a fern."

I won't be surprised if pot legalization groups start planting those weeds to instigate a wrongful arrest and draw attention to their efforts to change drug laws.

i googled horsemint to see what it looked like and it has the same shape as marijuana, but horseweed is way more colorful.

They should of looked through a plant book before they started picking
