  • Rochdale AFC using cannabis lamps confiscated by police to help grow grass (the kind you run on)

    League One club Rochdale AFC have begun using heat lamps seized by police in drug raids to improve the pitch at their Spotland ground. Inspired by Notts County, who did the same last year, Rochdale have mounted the lights on custom rigs to help grow grass that is regularly trampled by footballers and rugby players instead of that which is smoked by people who think tacos should be a pizza topping.

    The lamps will be used primarily around the goal mouths and the tunnel area, according to groundsman Oli Makin. From the BBC:

     Now Rochdale will just have to resist the temptation to use the lamps for their intended purpose in order to fund a bid for Lionel Messi.
