An elderly couple from the town of Bedford told police that they accidentally purchased the cannabis plant you see above at a flea market because they thought it was just a green shrub. Police had no choice but to laugh at that, tweeting out a photo of the plant and noting that it was in great condition. In fact, it was the "biggest" cannabis plant that they had seen. 

However, they didn't let the couple keep it. The plant was seized, and a spokesperson said it would be destroyed. The elderly couple will not be charged.
