A Pennsylvania granmother, who was busted for growing pot next to her tomato plants, told police it wasn’t her idea to grow the illegal plant but a bearded stranger wearing a Smurf hat who gave her the seeds.
Alberta Kelley went to court on the matter, faced a jury and was acquitted on all charges.
Pittsburgh Live reports that police were alerted to what was growing in the 67-year-olds garden from an anonymous tip.
Investigators say they found seven well-cultivated, four-foot marijuana plants behind her home.
She said she’d been given the seeds by a stranger in a pointy hat who told her they were flower seeds.
Kelley tells WTAE-TV that to her, “weeds are weeds.”
