File this one in the “Dumb Things People Do When They’re High” category: a cannabis grower in England has been arrested after he posted videos of his crop on YouTube. According to the Metro UK, the man (age 25 in human years) even managed to post the clips under his real name.
Officers had an idea something was up when they saw footage of the crops in his Bridgewater, Somerset home, which the man was using to document its growth. “The cultivation of cannabis is illegal,” said police officer Adrian Peck on the matter. “If you break the law and are foolish enough to then advertise your criminal activities on the Internet, it makes it very easy for the police to catch you.”
Do we even need to classify this is as a cautionary tale? [From: Ananova]
