Canadians Mistake Hops For Marijuana, Mess Up Beer Supply

Can you tell the difference between the two photos above?

If you can, you're a few steps ahead of a group of alleged would-be thieves in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. According to a report from the Queens District Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP):

On Saturday November 26, 2016 at 3:45 pm, Stratford RCMP responded as a result of a complaint from the farmer about a break and enter into his Hops Farm (Beer Production). The farmer had observed three unknown adults near his farm buildings. Two adult male and one adult female from Charlottetown were taken quickly into custody. The three adults told RCMP Members that they thought there was marihuana growing on the farm.

And yes, the RCMP still spells it "marihuana".

But it gets worse: As the report notes, "the three caused extensive damaged [sic] to the farm's crop that was packaged for shipping," and the "senseless act has impacted the farm's ability to provide quality product to market."

In other words, the trio's attempted bud bonanza has affected the beer supply chain. This is why we can't have nice things.

Saying you work in cannabis is sure to raise some eyebrows. Some people might be curious, others might not take you seriously, and still others might ask how they can invest. These cannabis executives dish on the reactions they get when they say they work in the space, and how those reactions have evolved over the past 10 years.

Can we see some ID please?
