Almost three dozen cannabis plants have been found growing in the flower beds in front of the Vermont Statehouse.

Police say a visitor alerted them to the 34 plants in mid-July 2019 among the cultivated flowers that line the walkway in front of the building in Montpelier.

Capitol Police Chief Matthew Romei said he doesn't know if the immature plants were marijuana or hemp. He said officials don't intend to test the plants to see if they are marijuana or hemp because there is no criminal case.

In Vermont, possession of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use is legal. Farmers can plant hemp as a cash crop.

Romei says officials have made similar discoveries in the Statehouse flower gardens in previous years.

Authorities do not plan to test the cannabis plants found outside of the Vermont Statehouse to see if they are hemp or marijuana. No charges will be filed, police said. (Vermont Capitol Police Chief Matthew Romei via The Associated Press)
