    Troops battle 10-foot marijuana plants

    Fri Oct 13, 8:48 AM ET


    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy -- almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet-high marijuana plants.
    General Rick Hillier, chief of the Canadian defense staff, said on Thursday that Taliban fighters were using the forests as cover. In response, the crew of at least one armored car had camouflaged their vehicle with marijuana.
    "The challenge is that marijuana plants absorb energy, heat very readily. It's very difficult to penetrate with thermal devices ... and as a result you really have to be careful that the Taliban don't dodge in and out of those marijuana forests," he said in a speech in Ottawa.
    "We tried burning them with white phosphorous -- it didn't work. We tried burning them with diesel -- it didn't work. The plants are so full of water right now ... that we simply couldn't burn them," he said.
    Even successful incineration had its drawbacks.
    "A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," Hillier said dryly.
    One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'."

    nothing says "pwned!" like a daisy cutter. If it can blast a couple of hundred yards of thick Vietnam jungle into splinter-like hamburger... I think it could kick ass on that weed. 10 feet tall or no...

    B-s....

    I say it's BS...I doubt a pot plant could grow 10' high in Canada..the growing season is too short!..unless they used something like "Miracle Gro" or other plant steroids!..

    I know a few guys from high school who'd gladly cut them down,dry them out,and burn them for free!...:whistle:
