Warders in a French jail where prisoners are allowed to grow their own produce have been left red-faced after the discovery of cannabis plants among the flowers and vegetables.

The plants, which had reached a height of around 80cm (two and a half feet) before being spotted at the weekend, were found in vegetable patches located in the exercise courtyard of the Saint-Martin-de-Re prison in the west of France, Christophe Beaulieu, a regional official of the prison officers' union, told AFP.

"When you don't know what you are looking for it is easy to confuse them with other plants," :wacko: Beaulieu said.

The sceme hasnt necessarily backfired lol They just need to check the inmates properly to make sure they dont have seeds to grow weed haha

But agree with Osiris, hats off to the prisoners for trying to grow it right in front of them lol
