This plant is growing wild (I won't say where). It can be smelled from about 15 feet away (which is what drew me to it). The smell is unmistakable. When you crush the leaves it's even more unmistakable. Unless I'm mistaken I've found something unique. Here is a picture of the buds.
The leaves have a very unusual arrangement up and down the stem. There are clusters of between 5 and 8 leaves growing in tiers (a few sets of leaves above one another). UP to 3 tiers. Here's how they appear in arrangement on the plant:
In other places on the plant you might see the following double tiered arrangement of the leaves:
The stem and the leaves start out green, but I've noticed as the plant matures the stem goes reddish brown and gets hard like a branch, and the leaves start turning ALL RED. I'll get pictures of this today and upload them later.
I sent video of this find to an expert (I read about online). The next day they came with a road grater (the county did) and plowed under the very location where I filmed the plant.
Now that might be a coincidence but it might not be. They've never plowed that spot before. (I've lived here for 9 years).
So, let me know everyone, do you think I might have found some unknown wild cannabis?
