It all happened in Corpus Christi, TX. At about 8PM on Thursday night, a teenage bike rider discovered what he thought were marijuana plants growing in Waldron Park in Flour Bluff.
Officers ultimately spent hours tagging and removing some 400 plants from the city park. Only after testing did they discover that the plants were Horse Mint, a member of the mint family, and certainly not something you could get high on.
In effect, the police operation turned into mere yard work.
