OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy -- almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet (three metre) high marijuana plants.
One of the funniest parts about the whole story (which is in itself hilarious):
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," Hiller said dryly.
Go read the quote from a soldier right at the end of the article. Too funny.

Thanks, as always, to the guys at LLPN and John Cole's Balloon Juice for the links.
