Grow okra, go to jail?

SWAT teams seizes okra leaves for “evidence”

Grow okra in your backyard and go to jail?

You wouldn’t think so, but one Atlanta retiree received a not-so-friendly visit from the local SWAT team armed to the teeth – and pointing their weapons at him.

The issue?

His okra plants.

Yup, you read that right.

Apparently the DEA funded (your tax dollars) Keystone Kops can’t tell the difference between orkra and the “highly dangerous plant” known as cannabis.
