Duchess grows opium and cannabis

The British government has given an aristocrat permission to grow goodies like cannabis, opium, and magic mushrooms in her public garden.

"…the Poison Garden provides an innovative opportunity for us to deliver, in a relaxed atmosphere, simple information on drugs and drugs issues to a section of the general public that can be hard to reach."

Hard to reach? Who knew that garden enthusiasts, grey-haired old ladies, and tourists in raincoats were missing links in the "war on drugs"?

Cool idea, though.
