Illegal Cannabis Grow Busted After Someone Leaves The Front Door Open

The first rule of having an illegal cannabis grow-op? Make sure you close the front door.

One aspiring cannabis kingpin in the Welsh town of Llanelli learned this lesson the hard way. Last Friday, neighbors noticed that a small home on Gilbert Crescent had its door open for "several hours". 

Dyfed-Powys Police responded to calls about the door. "On entry,” said a spokeswoman, "officers found a number of cannabis plants in various stages of growth, as well as paraphernalia linked to cultivating cannabis.”

So where was the occupant? According to police, they were nowhere to be found, despite searches on the property and door-to-door inquiries around the neighborhood. 

Suffice it to say, wherever this person is, they are probably beating themselves up over their mistake.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
