Dozens of marijuana plants have been found growing among a Manitoba farmer’s oats.
On Saturday, RCMP got a call from a man who farms just north of Riding Mountain National Park. The farmer recently noticed dozens of curious plants growing amid his oat crop, covering about 20 acres. RCMP immediately identified the plants, all 146 of them, as marijuana plants nearing the harvest stage.
"It is unusual. It was pretty scattered," said RCMP Sgt. Crystal Welcher. "It’s difficult to say if it was intentional because it wasn’t in any organized fashion."
No charges have been laid. The investigation continues.
