In Kostroma, Russia, police coming to confiscate cannabis plants were met with a fight when colonies of bees located at the center of the field of marijuana attacked them.
The swarm forced cops to retreat and come back later with protective suits to remove the marijuana plants.
The man caring for the bees faces up to 8 years in prison if he is found to have willingly cultivated the 500 plus cannabis plants found on his property.
It is unclear what strain of cannabis this is, but based on the pictures, it looks like it may not be the more psychoactive, smoking type of cannabis, it might just be the hemp producing strain of cannabis.
The man charged claims that the plants were growing wildly, and when asked why he did not destroy them, he said he was too busy caring for the bees.
Some people were suggesting that the bees were placed there as a mechanism of defense to keep the cannabis plants safe, but it doesn’t quite make sense because police could easily get through the bees, as they did, with protective suits.
Please share this with as many people as possible and be sure to express your concerns over this man’s harsh sentence. It is wrong to imprison people for victimless crimes, no matter what nationality of government or gang you represent.
People will continue to erode the inconsistent paradigm of cannabis punishment one issue at a time.
