how could someone possibly doing that !!! how horible to just plant random plants ! they are illegal ... plants are the Devil ...!(Ireland): Campaigner plants cannabis in Cork city centre
Cannabis plants have been planted in Cork city centre by a campaigner who is calling for safe access to cannabis products for medicinal use.
Martin Condon, who wants to see cannabis legalised, planted several plants in the city, which were removed by gardaí, leading him to subsequently plant some more.
Mr Condon told RTÉ's Today with Claire Byrne that he planted cannabis plants in flower boxes to highlight how much, in his view, that garda time is wasted on this
A week ago, Mr Condon planted cannabis plants near Shandon Bridge in the city centre, with the Irish Examiner reporting that gardaí uprooted these after a few days.
This led Mr Condon to planting nine more plants, and he says he is doing this to highlight how garda resources could be better used elsewhere, and how it is time in his view to legalise cannabis.
Gardaí confirmed they removed suspected cannabis plants from Shandon footbridge shortly before 6.30pm last Wednesday, 30 June.
No arrests have been made to date, investigations are ongoing.
