Welsh Police Just Found a Whole Lot of Weed in an Abandoned Fridge

If you forgot to take your weed out of an abandoned fridge in a back alley, the Welsh police are looking for you.

We know that storing your cannabis is the best way to make sure you maintain its potency over a long period of time, but most people don't try to grow marijuana in their refrigerators. So you can imagine the surprise of Welsh police when  they discovered a full grown cannabis plant inside of an abandoned fridge earlier this week.

The fridge was discovered by Welsh police in a Claerwen, Gelligaer alleyway and was stuffed with a few hundred pounds sterling worth of illicit cannabis. Police said that "detectives are knocking on doors" and conducting "forensic tests on the icebox-turned-stashbox" to see if they can find the origin of the marijuana. Their investigation seems to be hitting a few snags however, as police have also turned to social media to see if locals know anything about it.

Recreational cannabis continues to be illegal in the UK, so anyone associated with this particular stash is liable to get slapped with a pretty hefty fine if police track them down.


Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.

Can we see some ID please?
