Marijuana Found Along Admirals Road In Saanich

SAANICH, B.C. - City boulevards are often lined with grass, but when a less-than-legal type of greenery showed up along curbs in Saanich, B.C., officers wasted no time doing a little weed whacking.

Residents living along Admirals Road, on the western side of the Victoria suburb, say medians in the area had just been topped with soil, prior to sodding.

But before the grass could be seeded, someone carefully planted 29 young, healthy marijuana plants.

The shady shoots showed up Saturday.

Police are now searching for the illicit landscaper. (CFAX)
