Marijuana Found Growing Wild On East Village Sidewalk

New York City is officially and literally going to pot. The evidence is above, thanks to friend of NYC The Blog Bunny Lane, who shared this photo showing a nascent marijuana plant spotted yesterday at 1st Street and 2nd Avenue.

What's going on y'all?? This little guy joins pot plants recently seen in Brooklyn and Union Square. Is this a public art project meant as wry commentary on how New York City is going to pot? You can't tell me otherwise. Sure beats the Heroin Stamp Project at White Box Gallery last month.

Also, if marijuana is a gateway drug, the City might want to reconsider their decision to remove a pamphlet on safe intravenous drug use from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's website.

Enjoy foraging for this weed, though it's most likely been spoken for.
