police still won't admit the plants they seized in what was supposedly the biggest outdoor marijuana bust in Lethbridge history are plain old flowers — daisies, to be precise.

All police will concede at this point is the 1,624 plants torn from a suburban Lethbridge garden on July 30 isn't marijuana, as first claimed after a phalanx of police marched in and starting plucking.

"This is a significant bust, given the size of this operation," is how a senior officer put it at the time, while proudly displaying garbage bags full of the dastardly daises.

I wonder if they went in with pistils blazing. I hope they put the petal to the metal to stem these kinds of abuses.

Personal connection: We attended a wedding in Lethbridge (southern Alberta) back in the 70s. The groom was of Scots descent and the bride of Ukranian. Both of them were first-generation Canadians and thus the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles were all from their respective old countries. It was quite amusing to observe the two groups mingle -- the older folks were all quite short and spoke with heavy Scots or Ukranian accents. We brought our own weed.
