Gardener sends photo of ‘weed’ to BBC show – which turns out to be cannabis

Presenters of Radio Devon’s The Potting Shed identify 5ft bush with a ‘sickly sweet pong’, but police decide not to take action

After our earlier report that a US reporter quit live on air to front a pro-cannabis campaign, news reaches Monkey of another incident involving the green weed.

The Western Morning News reports that a Devon gardener sent in a photo of a mystery plant to a BBC radio show for identification – only to be told it was cannabis.

Patricia Hewitson emailed photos of the 5ft bush – which she said had a “sickly sweet pong” to BBC Radio Devon programme The Potting Shed.

Fortunately the presenters of the show, Sarah Chesters and Pippa Quelch, told her she would not face charges. Hewitson told the paper:

Green fingered … a photo of a 5ft bush sent to a BBC gardening show turned out to be a cannabis plant

 

“Pippa and Sarah also sent on the pictures of the plant to Devon and Cornwall police, although they didn’t give them my details.

The police got back in touch with Pippa and Sarah, letting them know that it did look like cannabis but that they wouldn’t be pressing charges.”

A police officer said: “The lady has committed an offence although there are mitigating circumstances so we would not look to take it further although we would take it away.” The BBC presenters gave Hewitson advice on disposing of the plant – which presumably did not include incineration.
