Police in Connecticut Let Public Know They’re Not Smelling Pot Farms
No, you will not get a contact high from the smell of a hemp farm.
A post recently appeared on the East Windsor Police Department's Facebook page regarding suspected trespassers intentionally wandering onto East Windsor hemp farms and stealing their plants.
Yes, the hemp fields look like pot and they smell like pot, but there is no THC in the flower, which means the suspects who are stealing the hemp plants aren't going to catch a buzz at all.
C'mon, hemp burglars, these East Windsor hemp farmers are licensed by the state to grow this valuable crop. You're messing with these farmers' livelihoods. An acre of hemp could produce 500 to 1,500 pounds of dried flowers, which translates into between $37,500 and $150,000. As a matter of fact, hemp has over 50,000 uses.
If you're a hemp farm marauder, let's review: What you're pilfering will not make you hungry, horny or sleepy, because there are only trace amounts of THC in the hemp plant, and that means you will not get turnt up.
The East Windsor Police Department has asked us to put the word out that they are placing more patrols in that specific area. If caught, you will be arrested and prosecuted.
