'Pot' bust yields catnip [ME]

'Pot' bust yields catnip
August 4, 2005 - mainetoday.com

WATERVILLE -- A cat somewhere might be in trouble with the law.

Police officers thought they had found a marijuana haul grown indoors -- but when they searched a Silver Street apartment Tuesday morning, all they caught was catnip.

Catnip is an herb of the mint family. Scientists say it provokes a "high" for cats -- but not humans.

Police went to Stefanie Glidden's apartment above Silver Street Tavern at 9:15 a.m., convinced that pot plants were growing on a window sill.

"I was in the restaurant at the time," said Glidden, 24, who works at Silver Street Tavern. "I was told by the chef that the police were at my apartment and they had a warrant."

Accompanied by James Richards, the tavern's co-owner and the building's leaseholder, Glidden showed officers her herb garden in a flower box.

"They kept asking, 'Where's the white plant pot?'" she said.

With Richards' cooperation, officers then searched the apartment above Glidden's -- where they found catnip in a white plant pot.

Police said the search was the result of a mistaken tip.

Officers who went to check the window saw what they believed to be the illegal plant, according to Police Chief John E. Morris.

They then sought approval from the Kennebec County district attorney for a search warrant, signed by a judge.

"(The search) was done with professionalism, and nothing was damaged that I know of," Morris said. "I'm not sorry we executed a search warrant, but I'd be happy to talk to (those affected) to tell our side of the story."

Morris said the search lasted about a half-hour.

Richards and Glidden said they believe the search was the result of a police officer moving into an apartment across the alley from Glidden.

"The kicker is, if you go by the alley between the tavern and pawn shop, you cannot see (her window) from the road,' said James Richards.

Glidden is both amused and irate.

"There's an incredible narcotics problem in the city, and they're worried about catnip?" she said. "It sounds silly to me."

And this is why we should make Catnip illegal! Do we want our kitties to be drug addicts? No, of course not! And Catnip is a gateway drug, leading to harder stuff like mice and scratching the LazyBoy to shreds!

I dont know about not for humans... 2 cups of catnip boiled in 2 cups of water for about 15 minutes and chugged when cooled some causes a very heavy narcotic effect for me.

Indeed. I recall some time ago, cops in Johnson City, Tenn. tried to bust a guy for growing weed for having a 9-foot Japanese Maple in his back yard... :shake:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.
