(Newser) – Who needs grow lights? A couple in Bedfordshire, England, picked up a cute little plant at market and lovingly tended it as it grew into a lush plant in the garden, reports CNN. That's when it drew the attention of police, who tweeted a photo of it with the caption, "Elderly couple bought shrub at car boot sale ... biggest cannabis plant we had seen!!" Police seized the pot plant and won't press charges. An elderly farmer in Germany had a similar experience recently.

British police posted this photo of the pot plant.
