Odessa Police Expect X-Mas Bud; Get X-Mas Trees Instead
KopBusters, a group from Austin, Texas rented a house in Odessa Texas and, for the past six months, have been growing small Christmas trees under grow lights similar to those used for growing marijuana. Police claimed that they could "smell" marijuana and may have also used a confidential informant who claimed to witness the marijuana.
