A 35-year old janitor living in Osaka was arrested at his home last month for growing and selling marijuana. It’s a fairly rare incident in Japan but what really caught our eye was the unique techniques that the man used.
Police found 21 potted plants in the man’s house. Marijuana plants can easily grow to be over 3 ft high but these plants were around 15 inches. When questioned by police, they learned that the man had used bonsai techniques to trim, prune and manicure the plants so that he could maximize his small apartment space.
In a statement the man said – and I quote – “this is the first time I’ve produced such a great crop.” Yes, he is the Mr. Miyagi of cannabis.
