Top marks for ingenuity but this cunning disguise failed to fool police raiding a suspected cannabis farm in Cheltenham.
Officers found the marijuana plant decorated like a Christmas tree during a raid of a suspected small cannabis farm shortly before Christmas.
Some real effort had gone in to its decoration too with tinsel, lights, bows and an angel to top it off.
Gloucestershire police have since arrested a man and woman on suspicion of cannabis cultivation and also seized drugs and equipment.
The pair have since been bailed until February pending further enquiries but not before police informed the public of their unusual find.
It’s not the only unusual use of cannabis plants, last year a crop was found growin in flower pots put out by the council to brighten up Newport city centre.
