    Drugs: India police say rats ate 200kg of seized cannabis
    Drugs: India police say rats ate 200kg of seized cannabis

    Police in India have blamed rats for destroying nearly 200kg (440lb) of cannabis seized from dealers and kept in police stations.

    "Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police. It's difficult to protect the drug from them," a court in Uttar Pradesh state has said.

    The court had asked the police to produce the stash as evidence in cases of drug peddling.

    The judge cited three cases in which marijuana was destroyed by rodents.

    Judge Sanjay Chaudhary said in an order that when the court asked the police to produce the seized drug as evidence, it was told that 195kg of cannabis had been "destroyed" by rats.

    In another case involving 386kg of the drug, the police filed a report saying "some" of the cannabis was "eaten up by the rats".

    Judge Chaudhary said some 700kg of marijuana seized by the police was lying in police stations in Mathura district and that "all of it was under danger of infestation by rats".

    He said the police had no expertise in dealing with the matter as the rats were "too small". The only way to protect the seized goods from "such fearless mice", he added, was to auction the drugs to research labs and medicine firms, with the proceeds going to the government.

    MP Singh, a senior police official of Mathura district, told reporters that some of the marijuana stored in police stations under his vicinity had been "damaged due to heavy rains" and not destroyed by rats. (snipped)

    Now, rats and mice do LOVE to eat cannabis seeds. The seeds are "powerhouses" of nutrition and the rodents know it, so they will seek them out! (Someone should introduce the cops in India to metal trash cans! :coolalt: ) And I wonder just who those "research labs and medicine firms" are? :rolleyes:

  9. Oh My Goodness! It's even worse than when first reported! The rats are eating cannabis at an amazing rate!

    Over 1,000 pounds of marijuana vanished in India. Police are blaming hungry rats Over 1,000 pounds of marijuana vanished in India. Police are blaming hungry rats

    A half-ton of confiscated marijuana disappeared from a storage room in India — and police are now pointing fingers at tiny, four-legged trespassers.

    Police in Mathura, a city about 100 miles south of New Delhi, said rats consumed the sizable stockpile, filled with enough marijuana to roll 1.3 million joints, after a court mandated that the drugs be produced as evidence in a smuggling trial, according to The National.

    “There is no place in the police station where the stored goods can be saved from the rats,” prosecutors said, according to the outlet.

    The court, seemingly unconvinced, demanded proof that the rodents had eaten the drugs, which were valued at about $70,000, according to the Times of India. The judge also ordered police to put a stop to the “mice menace.”

    I wonder if the cops in India will soon be called "rats". :laughing:
