Attack of the Tomato Killers: The Police State's War on Weed and Backyard Gardens

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By John W. Whitehead

Backyard gardeners, beware: tomato plants have become collateral damage in the government's war on drugs, especially marijuana.

In fact, merely growing a vegetable garden on your own property, or in a greenhouse on your property, or shopping at a gardening store for gardening supplies—incredibly enough—could set you up for a drug raid sanctioned by the courts.

It's happened before.

After shopping for hydroponic tomatoes at their local gardening store, a Kansas family found themselves subjected to a SWAT team raid as part of a multi-state, annual campaign dubbed "Operation Constant Gardener," in which police collected the license plates of hundreds of customers at the gardening store and then investigated them for possible marijuana possession.
