The new scourge of cannabis dumping

ACT Policing’s Rural Patrol is investigating several instances of dumped cannabis in rural areas of the ACT this month.

Around 10.45am today (Wednesday, September 14), Rural Patrol attended a road in the rural area of Holt after ACT Rangers found approximately 50 kilograms of cannabis dumped on the side of the road.

The cannabis consisted of clippings and roots from 15 plants, and is believed to be of low quality.

This is the third finding of dumped cannabis by the Rural Patrol this month, with two previous findings in Stromlo.

Police would urge anyone with any information on the dumped cannabis, or anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity or vehicles in the rural areas of Holt and Stromlo to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information to Crime Stoppers can be provided anonymously.

Just another indication that the economy isn’t doing so bad after all, at least in the ACT. It would only be in a moneyed-up town that someone would dump 50 kilos (FFS!) of dope of any quality rather than toke it up or sell it.

Clippings and roots – no-one smokes that sh1t.

Well, next time you see some TV’s dumped, scatter 50kgs of pot around them and call the city rangers…

It’s sold by the ounce.

And, interestingly, in America where they still use the imperial system, it is sold by the gram.
