Nun The Wiser

Just Don’t Burn Those Plants, Mother Superior

A Greek Orthodox nunnery was turned into a marijuana plantation by two men posing as gardeners for elderly nuns. Acting on a tip-off, police raided the nunnery in the village of Filiro, near the northern port city of Thessaloniki, and found more than 30 large cannabis plants in the enclosed garden. Police did not arrest the nuns and have launched a hunt for the culprits.

FOOTNOTE: Open the pot bay door, Hal.
