Was Osama Growing Weed?S

Reporters have discovered all kinds of marijuana plants growing around the compound in which Osama Bin Laden had been living since 2006. Did his death end the War on Terror and the War on Drugs? Probably! Both CNN and The Daily Telegraph note the "small plots of marijuana growing in the deserted lots on the compound's perimeter." The Telegraph describes it as "wild cannabis" (and notes that it gives the area "a pleasant fragrance in the hot early summer air"), and it's not uncommon for weed to just be growing as, literally, a weed in parts of Pakistan. But if the White House is allowed to just make up whatever it wants about the mission that killed Bin Laden, we feel confident saying: Osama was growing bud. Why else was he buying so much soda?
