Suspicious pond weed destroyed by police

A plant pulled from a pond in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, that bore a resemblance to cannabis has been destroyed by police.



Officers were alerted to the suspicious leaves, which had collected in a corner of the pond, on Tuesday.





After fishing out and bagging up the leaves they took them away and a force spokesman has confirmed the plant has since been destroyed.





It has not been confirmed whether or not the plant was cannabis as no official tests were carried out.

I suspect it's much more likely to be Japanese Maple which can grow quite well in the UK. The leaves look like: https://eschmidtpabonsai.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/dsc04233.jpg

There's also a small species of tree (with actual bark) that has leaves that look like marijuana fronds, in a similar star pattern. Name escapes me at the moment, however.
