Elderly Couple Didn't Know They Were Growing Pot

British police say an elderly couple in Bedford had no idea they were growing a pot plant in their backyard. Apparently, the couple bought it at a flea market and thought it was an innocuous green bush. So the couple tended to it and it grew to be every pothead’s dream; a homegrown massive cannabis monster.

The plant was seized on Monday by police and Bedford LPD posted this tweet about the pot plant:
