Sometimes I refer to a “treat it like tomatoes” crowd of activists who yearn for maximum marijuana freedom.
And everybody knows when you ask questions in a hydroponics store, you ask about the needs of your “tomato plants”.
(Daytona Beach News-Journal) A 15-year-old boy climbed into Angela Cartwright’s kitchen window thinking to make off with a marijuana plant, but instead the young thief was actually stealing a potted tomato plant, a sheriff’s arrest report shows.
As he was running from Cartwright’s house on Carmen Avenue near Holly Hill on Feb. 10 just after 7 a.m., the teen even yelled at Cartwright, “See, I have one of your pot plants!” the arrest report states.
Cartwright had arrived at her residence that morning after leaving her 6-year-old son off at the school bus stop. When she walked into her home she saw a teenager whose torso was inside her kitchen window and the other half of his body was hanging outside, the report shows.
According to the report and Cartwright, the boy, who The Daytona Beach News-Journal is not identifying because of his age, admitted to stealing the tomato plant, valued at under $5.
When interviewed, the young suspect told a lawman the same thing — he broke into Cartwright’s house thinking he was getting away with a marijuana plant, the report shows.
