Lothian and Scottish Borders Police chipped in to National Poetry Day with a verse on how to recognise evidence of marijuana growing.
At the end of a presentation on the tell-tale signs, the poem appeared on the force’s Facebook page.
“A sniff and smell of something sickly and sweet
Tells all is not well.
A new vent, darkened windows and constant light
Tells all is not right.
Excessive cables and high levels of heat
Tells this is danger to your street
That you want to get out
Weed them out, give us a shout.”
More information on the issue is available under the hashtag #weedthemout.
