Merryjuana Tree This Christmas: German Arrested

This is not your usual Christmas Tree, its the Merryjuana Tree. This six-foot-tall marijuana tree was discovered by the local police in a house of a German man decorated with Twinkling Christmas lights.

The marijuana plant had been put in a Christmas tree stand and decorated with a string of lights," officers said in a statement. "When asked, the hashish fan told the perplexed officers that he had intended to add more decorations to the 'tree' and place the presents under it, according to tradition." A 150 grams marijuana was also found in the man’s home in Koblenz before the tree was discovered. He was now facing drug possession charges.

Not only that, it turns out he wasn't the only German getting into the Christmas spirit with cannabis this year. On Tuesday, a 21-year-old Munich man was reportedly arrested after making an Advent calendar with marijuana hidden behind each door instead of chocolate. Claiming he had been given the calendar as a present, that suspect was ultimately released but now faces charges of possessing drugs.
