Cops don’t know what a pot plant looks like

On fox news:

It turns out the tall plants with the narrow leaves arranged in a fan pattern weren't pot plants at all, but specimens of Texas Star hibiscus. Which Davis grows for his landscaping business.

"No apology, no nothing," Davis complained to the Chronicle. "I realize they have a job to do, but this seems a little bizarre."

I think that the Harris County Organized Crime Unit needs a LOT more training. The judge that issued the search warrant needs to make sure that they know what they are looking at also. There is just no excuse for this. I support the police, but they really do need to make sure they know that a crime is being committed. For goodness sake the plants in question were in the front yard. All they had to do was walk up to the house look at them compare them to a picture and then walk away. Read the story it is very funny. Kind of sounds like the Fife Washington polices.
