    \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t[​IMG]Northamptonshire Police"Northamptonshire Police would like to apologize for the incorrect information provided to the media which claimed that cannabis plants had potential carcinogenic properties"​A local police department in the United Kingdom has issued an apology over an incorrect statement made following a cannabis garden raid.

    Northamptonshire Police have retracted an earlier statement which claimed the odor of mature marijuana plants causes cancer, reports the Harborough Mail.


    "Northamptonshire Police would like to apologize for the incorrect information provided to the media which claimed that cannabis plants had potential carcinogenic properties," a spokesman for the force stiffly offered.


    "This information was provided in good faith," the spokesman claimed. "However, we accept the information was misleading and we will strive to ensure this does not happen again."


    The original outlandish claim was published in the Mail on March 1 in a report about cannabis plants being seized by police during a raid in Cottingham. It received worldwide attention after Toke of the Town picked up the story on March 8.

    First Time Ever That Sitting Presidents Are Calling For All Options, Including Legalization And Decriminalization, To Be Put On The Table

    Momentum Builds for Unprecedented Debate at Summit of The Americas in Colombia in April

    This Saturday, March 24, a historic meeting will take place when presidents from Central America come together in Guatemala to discuss legalization, decriminalization and other strategies for reducing the region's prohibition-related violence, crime and corruption.


    The meeting, initiated and hosted by Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, represents the first time ever that sitting presidents are seriously debating alternatives to drug prohibition - and it comes just weeks before the topic will be considered for the first time at the Summit of the Americas meeting in Colombia in mid-April.
     
  2. They said the odor from the plants caused cancer? What a bunch of nimrods!! :rolleyes: lolol :laughing:
     
  3. At least they admitted they were wrong. I don't think any government agency has EVER done that in the U.S.
     
  4. Ain't that the truth! Our government is too proud to ever admit they are wrong about anything. They love to shout about their Christian values. They need to be reminded that pride is one of the deadliest of the 7 deadly sins.
     
  5. That's really starting to annoy me - the christian or any religious values thing in american politics. I guess I'd better reread the separation of church and state clause thing again.
