Nevada City, CA — Some of the Nevada City residents living on Cottage Street have grown tired of waiting for the city to repair the roadway and recently decided to take matters into their own hands. They did this by planting a series of marijuana plants in the aging street’s numerous pot holes.
The idea was the brainchild of Cottage Street resident and local video engineer Morris Crawford who said it came to him after his bike fell into one of the holes, sending him tumbling to the asphalt.
“This is Nevada City, and it wasn’t enough to complain to the City Council,” said Mr. Crawford in a Scooper telephone interview. “I mean, all they’ve done is come out and paint white circles around the holes. Anyhow, we had to make a Social Media-shareable statement. So I called up a connection I had in Allegheny, and he brought down these four marijuana plants and we stuck them into the holes.”
What started out as a prank, turned into a city-wide movement with other frustrated locals “protest planting” marijuana plants in potholes.
“I think it’s a great idea,” said Toby “Doob” Carnvevale outside of local supermarket SPD. “But I’m not about to give up my plants for the cause.”
