Chill No Chill: VA Cop Uses Town Fire Hydrant to Grow Weed

Maybe he just wanted to be the cool cop, the coolest cop in all of North Carolina, but  33-year-old Thomas Daniel Gaskins, whose beat was the Veterans Administration hospital in Salisbury, is in deep hot water due to the perception that he cultivated 11 marijuana plants with the aid of a town fire hydrant.

Sheriff's documents indicate that Gaskins manufactured his 11 plants between June 10 and June 13, which is fast work indeed, verging on the miraculous.

Is Gaskins adventure in horticulture chill—with special considerations for sprouting weed in North Carolina? Or no chill? Because BYOW.
