Not good, guy. Drugs and gators are clearly not a wise choice.

This story came across my desk, and all I could do was sit there and shake my head. Then, of course, I had to share it with you, because it's more proof that dumb never rests!

Dude, you have an illegal grow operation where you live. What possessed you to think that having an alligator there as well would fly under the radar? Um, are you partaking in the goods? Getting high on your own supply?

In a post from the Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police, a guy from New Hartford is in a heap of trouble after it was discovered he had a two-foot-long alligator and a marijuana grow operation in a house he was renting.

Lord knows you can't cure stupid, but the alligator shouldn't suffer from the actions of an idiot. Conservationists will be happy to note that the EnCon police said the alligator was given to a reptile rehabilitative and educational organization.
