French Cops on Trail of Hortensia Gang

Flower Power !

Flower Power !

French police are anxious to capture the blooming buggers that have been stealing or cutting the heads off hydrangea plants

Apparently, when the leaves are dried and mixed with tobacco, the effect is similar to that of smoking cannabis

Now before any madhatters readers (mentioning no names, but you know who you are!) rush off to their nearest garden centre, armed with a pair of pruning shears, my conscience insists I warn you of possible side effects of smoking the hydrangea leaves – the flowers can apparently . . . provoke stomach and respiratory problems, speed up the heart, cause dizzy spells and, if consumed in large quantities, produce hydrogen cyanide (also known as prussic acid), the base of Zyklon B, the poison gas used in the Nazi death chambers, causing a slow and painful death (http://tinyurl.com/oqm254p)

So don’t say I didn’t warn you sti…… folks !

  2. As always, when there is a need or a will someone will find a way to obtain drugs. Who knew that a common garden plant could be used like this. Do you have the recipe for doing it since I have a few bushes of my own.

  4. Tonto and the Lone Ranger were rIding across the prairie. Tonto gets down from his horse and puts his ear to the ground. He looks at the Lone Ranger and says, Buffalo pass here five minute ago.”

    The Lone Ranger looks at him and says, “that’s amazing, how did you figure that out ?”

    Tonto replies “ear sticky.”
