Pennsylvania Couple Sues Drug Warriors Who Thought Hibiscus Was Marijuana

The first person who mistook Edward and Audrey Cramer’s hibiscus plants for marijuana was Jonathan Yeamans, a Nationwide Insurance agent who had come to their property in Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania, to have a look at the damage caused by a neighbor’s fallen tree. According to a lawsuit that the Cramers filed last week, Yeamans also had a look at their garden and snapped some pictures that he shared with the Buffalo Township Police Department, which is why a bunch of rifle-wielding drug warriors invaded the couple’s home two days later.

“I mean you try to keep an eye on it but if they run you just can’t leave the counter and chase them. So you just got to take the hit,” he told Hawaii News Now.

Fishing tale

An Urban Legend Confirmed: The Capitol Barracuda Lives

Earlier attempts to liberate Barry to the open ocean failed after being scuttled by the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, which said he could be returned to the ocean only after submitting to pathology testing and being declared disease-free — a process that apparently kills the fish. Even Mr. X, a longtime state employee, concluded that this was just plain “stupid.”

Mr. X suggests that there is a direct route to a storm drain that leads to the ocean, if only Barry could “pull a Nemo” and find the pond’s main drain. Unfortunately, Barry may already be too big for such exploits.
