Police Tweet ‘Missing Your Weed?’ After Discovering Marijuana Plants

Dallas police might be waiting awhile after asking Twitter to “call us” if you’re “missing your weed” upon discovery of a low-key illegal grow op in a remote area of the city on Friday.

The more than 3,000 plants (that’s 179 pounds) of marijuana will be destroyed, so time is of the essence should, you know, someone want to claim their stash.

This is not the first time police have stumbled upon a bunch of weed. According to Dallas News, in 2016, officers uncovered more than 5,000 marijuana plants growing in the Mountain Creek area.

That same year, Texas game wardens discovered a multi-million dollar operation in Menard County, where authorities seized about 40,000 marijuana plants.

Still no suspects in this recent case. And it’s doubtful anyone will actually turn themselves in because, you know…

This past September, Cansortium Texas received the first medical marijuana license from the state of Texas, which allows the company to grow, cultivate, and sell marijuana for patients with a rare form of epilepsy. It plans to open a dispensary in the small town of Schulenberg by late December. However, the state will only allow the processing and selling of high-CBD, low-THC marijuana. It’s a product 150,000 patients have already registered and received doctor approval for.
