Two Ugandan nuns, Sisters Nanteza and Rita, were arrested this week for growing weed on the grounds of their convent, which they told police was used for farm animals. Natenza attacked the officers for entering the convent without her permission.

A Ugandan newspaper, The New Vision, spoke with Masaka district Police commander Titus Byaruhanga, who said his officers entered the convent on a tip-off. Sister Nanteza was having none of it and attacked the police. She was then taken to the local police station, where she said, "You bypassed us without saying anything. What if you got a problem here, whose fault would it be?"

The BBC reports that an entire acre of the convent's land was being used to grow. The nuns told police they were growing the plants for pigs and other farm animals, but that it was definitely not for sale. Police have yet to charge anyone, and have questioned two "porters" who were on the scene at the time of the bust. So what the hell do farm animals do with weed?
