Marijuana scratch-and-sniff cards given out by Northern Ireland police to help folks rat out grow-ops

LOL! 🙂

Northern Ireland police are distributing marijuana-smelling scratch-and-sniff cards to help people recognize the smell of weed being grown illegally.

When scratched, the cards produce the scent of cannabis in its “growing state,” says the Guardian newspaper, which adds the odour is different from the smell of marijuana smoke.

The cards’ cannabis odour is caused by a chemical, not the plant itself.

    • Ha! 🙂

      I suppose weed being grown for medicinal purposes, legally, would probably be in actual greenhouses, rather than in unused residential spaces, so people wouldn’t encounter it in their neighbourhoods, and would never get the chance to smell it unless they worked in one of said greenhouses.

      That said, the smell of the plant would surely be exactly the same…
