Another plant that looks like marijuana

Here's another plant that looks like marijuana:

Someone call the DEA - that neighbor is growing marijuana!
I got this plant from some friends with a nursery just north of me.

They called it "false arrest" plant.

It's not at all related to marijuana, of course. It's actually a hibiscus, as you can tell when it decides to bloom:

Holy moly! A marijuana plant with a big pink bloom!

It's crazy how many people just have to make remarks when a plant looks like pot. It's been burned into us to be scared of marijuana and scared of the government.

Though I admit, if a drone ever started circling over my house and looking at this pot lookalike, I'd be grabbing my plant ID books to show the officers when they showed up.

Interestingly, last year's post on plants that look like marijuana is one of my most hit-on articles. Crazy.

Like I've said before, I've never grown pot or even tried it; yet just by being a plant geek with a large collection of interesting plants - some of which look like cannabis - I'm already a bit suspect.

Oh well - it's a crazy world we live in. For now I'll just enjoy my incriminating hibiscus.
