PHOENIX (Reuters) - Arizona seniors had no idea what the flourishing plant they nurtured in their driveway was until a passing deputy told them it was marijuana.

A Yavapai County sheriff’s department said a deputy spotted the blooming 5-foot-tall marijuana plant growing in the driveway of a retirement community near Prescott, midweek.

“The residents just thought it was a pretty weed and so they decided to nurture it,” department spokeswoman Susan Quayle told Reuters by telephone.

The officer yanked out the plant, which Quayle said was either “self-seeded or could have been dropped by a grandchild visiting the community.”


“No citations were issued. The officer just educated them,” she said.

Uhhh….just how clueless were these people?  Could they be growing some for health reasons and just faked ignorance?

ex associate.  Obviously you’ve never been to scottsdale in phoenix.  It’s honestly not surprising.

Basically it’s an entire community of rich old people from the east coast that can afford a second home for the winter.  We call them snowbirds.  My grandparents rent a home there every winter, so I know the area well.  Trust me.  Those people are completely clueless.
