#WeGotYoWeed, Taunt Kentucky Cops


After confiscating about 254 marijuana plants found nestled in a corn field last week, deputies in Grayson County, Kentucky, left the growers a note: Thanks for the weed!

In addition to thanking the still-unknown culprits for the nearly $600,000 worth of marijuana, deputies began to taunt the growers on social media with the hashtag #WeGotYoWeed.


According to a post from the Grayson County Sheriff's Office official Facebook page, an anonymous tip led them to the plants and the sheriff's office used this opportunity to remind the community that anyone knowledgeable of illegal grow operations can report the activity without providing any personal information.


Medical and recreational marijuana remain illegal in Kentucky, so the sheriff's office is legally required to shut down any grow operations in the state.

As originally reported by WOTL11, no arrests have been made in the case, as no one has shown up to claim the plants.
