GA Man Suffers Armed Raid After Cops Confuse Okra for Pot
On Wednesday, officers from the Governor’s Task Force for drug suppression conducted an armed raid on a Georgia man after mistaking okra plants in his garden for a cannabis grow operation during a helicopter flyover.
A small price to pay for keeping us all safe from the horrors of the demon weed. This man should grateful to his protectors, not complaining.
Last Wednesday, Georgia retiree Dwayne Perry woke up to the sound of a low-flying chopper hovering above his home. Then, armed officers appeared at his door with a K-9 in tow. Perrytold WSB-TV 2, “I was scared actually, at first, because I didn’t know what was happening.”
Investigators were apparently conducting aerial sweeps of the area to look for cannabis plants and mistook Perry’s okra garden for a marijuana grow operation. Possession of cannabis remains illegal in Georgia. “Here I am, at home and retired and, you know, I do the right thing. Then, they come to my house strapped with weapons for no reason. It ain’t right,” said Perry.
