That is sad. This is outdoor stuff and based on the time of year it already is, all they have to do is post a guard for a few more weeks tops and they can harvest it all for medical use.
Or they can just leave it be and let the person who grew it come back and harvest it and distribute it to all the people they originally intended to distribute it to who are “self medicating”.
Either choice results in harm reduction which should be the police’s first priority.
What’s it hurting? nothing.
Someone is not going to be able to afford university next year. Their green scholarship just went up in smoke.
