High Grade Cannabis Found Growing Near Bin Laden Hideout


By Steve Elliott

What were described as “high strength” cannabis plants were found “just yards” from the mansion of slain al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who was killed by U.S. commandos inside Pakistan on Sunday.

The marijuana was growing beside other crops, including cabbages and potatoes, in a garden just outside the 9/11 mastermind’s secret compound at Abbottabad, Pakistan, reports Philip Caulfield at the New York Daily News.

Reporters noticed the pungent weed growing in the deserted lots on the compound’s perimeter. Cannabis was planted on three sides of the compound, CNN reported Tuesday.

“Hundreds” of marijuana plants were said to have flourished on the border of the compound, about 80 kilometers from Islamabad, where the terror chief had reportedly holed up for more than six years.

The London Daily Mail speculated that the marijuana was being grown to ease the kidney problems bin Laden has suffered in recent years.

Interestingly, local residents — who claimed they had no idea bin Laden was living inside the compound — say they saw two young men who called themselves Akbar and Rashid Khan make regular trips from the compound for groceries, including ample supplies of Coke and Pepsi, reports the International Business Times.

    Ok, folks repeat after me: cannabis grows wild in this part of Pakistan like there is no tomorrow. The “indica” in Cannibus Indica refers to the Indus River, which is just a hop, skip and a jump from this compound. Islamabad, a city clear cut in the last 50 years, features acres of wild cannabis that grew into clear cut lots.

    Maybe OBL liked to toke, but the media sensationalism around this story pisses me off!

  2. bullshit like the bullshit report of a dead person becoming dead again after 10 years. the media slandering loves to add fuel to their fire of FAKE!

    someday the media will come clean for the crooks that bend it!
