It must have been an exciting day for a visitor at Vermont’s Capitol Police as they were able to point out that marijuana was growing on the front lawn.
Apparently there is a possible cannabis plant growing in the flower beds on the front law that is either hemp or marijuana.
Chief Matthew Romei said that they found 34 immature plants that are too young to differentiate.
There would need to be more lab testing done to figure out what the plants are, but Romei says the department has no plans to test them because it isn’t pursuing a criminal case.
“We also have no thoughts on why someone would plant it,” the department said. “But if anyone wants to claim it and let us know why they planted it, we are happy to listen.”
It was last year that Vermont became the first state to legalize recreational marijuana through legislature as opposed to by ballot in 2018.
