Woman admits to growing marijuana in her driveway, police say


Some marijuana growers go to great lengths to hide their operations -- building secret rooms, boobytrapping their sites, even constructing giant underground lairs with escape routes. Others, though, are not as discreet.

In Memphis, a 65-year-old woman has gotten busted for growing marijuana in her driveway, the Commercial Appeal reports. Police noticed the plants -- which were in pots -- during another call.

When Helen J. Franklin answered the door, officers asked her if she knew what the potted plants were, according to the document.

“Yes, reefer. I planted it,” she replied.

Points for honesty, ma'am. Points for honesty.
