Fabled "Bushwick Gold" Discovered, Seized by NYPD
Someone smelled smoke coming from a warehouse on Decatur Street in Bushwick yesterday morning, so the FDNY was called. The New York Daily News reports that firefighters "spotted" a marijuana farm nearby, but don't you prefer to think part of it caught fire and they smelled it burning? That would be so Cheech & Chong. Humongous bags of weed were hauled out of a building on Decatur Street yesterday, but the growers, in whom the police are keenly interested, are as yet unidentified.
