When a Portsmouth, New Hampshire detective observed the persistent smell of fresh pot coming from a home in the neighborhood, he rounded up his troops and raided a grow site, where they found and seized 51 plants.
The police then stashed the “contraband” in their evidence room, which is in the same building as Portsmouth City Hall.
Now, everyone in or near City Hall can smell the weed plants, and they don’t care for the aroma. Many are saying the smell is so strong that it’s making them sick.
As it turns out, there is a ventilation problem in the cops’ evidence room.
Police Lt. Mark Newport said the plants were so pungent, their skunky aroma wafted down the hall from the locked makeshift evidence room, up an elevator shaft and into the City Hall building.
As we speak, the police are sealing off the evidence room with plastic sheeting, duct tape and an air purifier.
Too bad the cops didn’t take a closer look at what they called “a sophisticated indoor grow house” when they raided it.
Although it seems that pot cultivator, Christian Lydon, didn’t have the smell problem worked out either. Lydon was released on $15,000 personal recognizance bail.
In that nearly all of the Portsmouth (population 20,800) municipal offices are in the City Hall building, there is normally a great deal of activity there.
Now, with the sweet aroma of cannabis wafting through the air, one wonders if there has been an increase of visitors stopping by City Hall. Or maybe an increase in the sale of snacks from the vending machines?
