Cannabis grows in a variety of climates around the world and can be used in many applications: rope, biofuel, paper, and many medical and recreational uses. The plant is part of the Cannabaceae family, which also includes hops. It is further classified as Cannabis sativa L . Each part of the plant serves a purpose and while the whole of a cannabis plant is certainly greater than the sum of its parts, knowing its parts can inform your experience and appreciation of it. Below are descriptions of each of the plant’s parts and the functions they perform.

Each part of the cannabis plant serves a purpose.

The flowers of the female marijuana plant can be identified by their small teardrop structures, which consist of pistils attached to bracts. Cannabis flowers are usually covered with a frosty-looking coating of trichomes, with a heavier density of trichomes making for a more desirable flower.

The main part of the flower, at the end of a female plant’s stem is composed of many small floral clusters. In general, the bigger, heavier, and more densely covered in trichomes a cola is, the better quality it will be, although some cultivars will naturally grow flowers that are more loosely structured and airy.


The small leaves that surround the reproductive cells of a female weed plant. When a female plant is exposed to pollen from a male marijuana plant, the bracts surround and shield the seed pod.


Marijuana trichomes are hairlike appendages found on the surface of the cannabis plant. Trichomes protect the plant from external stressors and contain resinous glands that create flavonoids, cannabinoids and terpenes — the chemical compounds that give the marijuana plant its unique features and effects. Trichomes give cannabis buds a crystal-like sheen and make them sticky feeling.

Within the glandular trichomes, there are three main types: bulbous, capitate-sessile and capitate-stalked.

Non-glandular trichomes are called cystoliths. Bulbous trichomes are tiny bulbs that are sparsely located throughout the entire plant, but are so small they can’t be seen with the naked eye. Capitate-sessile trichomes are more abundant than bulbous trichomes, found on the underside of the sugar leaves and fan leaves, but are usually only visible through a microscope. Capitate-stalked trichomes are shaped like mushrooms and contain a large trichome head at the top of the stalk. These are the trichomes that can be easily seen on the cannabis flower surface.

The point at which the stem and leaf intersect. Nodes can hold one or more leaves or offshoots. As explained below, nodes are important to be familiar with, as they are where cannabis plants begin to grow either pollen sacs (male cannabis plants) or pistils (female cannabis plants). Understanding the sex of a marijuana plant is crucial to the final product, since only female plants produce flowers and since non-pollinated flowers are far superior than pollinated buds when it comes to consumption.

Fan leaves

Leaves are important components of a weed plant, and there are actually a couple types of marijuana leaves. The large, protruding leaves that appear along the length of the plant are called fan leaves. Theses leaves are essential to the living plant’s photosynthesis, but are always removed from the finished, harvested product.

Sugar leaves

As opposed to fan leaves, sugar leaves are small leaves found throughout cannabis colas’ cupping buds that are typically trimmed off the flower after harvest. They are called “sugar leaves” because of the high volume of trichomes found on them, which makes it look like the leaves are covered in sugar. Sugar leaf trim can be used to make edibles or concentrates.

The main support structure of the marijuana plant, the stem transports fluids, nutrients, and information from the roots to the rest of the weed plant. The stem provides a foundation to give fan leaves access to the light they need to facilitate growth and carries the weight of heavy colas.

Pistils vs. stigmas

There is often a lot of confusion surrounding pistils and stigmas, with many people confusing one of the other. Here’s a quick breakdown on the difference between the two important cannabis plant components.

What is a pistil?

The pistil is the primary piece of the female flower’s reproductive system, comprising a single ovule with two protruding stigmas.

What are stigmas?

The thin hairs that extend from a female’s bract to catch male pollen. They are commonly confused with pistils. Knowing how to identify stigmas is an important part of growing weed, as these are the telltale signs that a plant is female and will therefore produce the cannabinoid-rich flowers you’re trying to harvest.

Types of weed plants

If you want to stay in touch with the origins of your favorite cannabis products, knowing the ins and outs of the plant at the industry’s core is a good place to start. And that includes knowing not only the specific parts of a cannabis plant, but also the different types and strains of weed that exist.

Along with understanding the various parts of a marijuana plant, you should also know about the different types of cannabis. While there are long-held claims about the effects that sativas, indicas, and hybrids offer, current research suggests that the effects of cannabis are determined by a person’s endocannabinoid system and the plant-specific cannabinoid profile.

Despite that, cannabis is typically classified in the following four categories:

  • Indica: Indica-leaning weed plants tend to produce dense, fat, heavy buds during the flowering stage. These strains are typically believed to give consumers a “body high” instead of a more cerebral high.
  • Sativa: Sativa plants tend to produce buds that are airy and more formed than indica plants. Sativa strains of the weed plant are often said to offer users a more cerebral, energetic, “buzzy” highs.
  • Hybrid: As a blend of sativa and indica, hybrid strains are generally believed to give you a more balanced high.
  • Hemp: Hemp plants are part of the cannabis family, but they differ from a regular weed plant in that they produce only trace amounts of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the intoxicating effects of the marijuana plant. In the U.S., the 2018 Farm Bill specified hemp as a cannabis plant containing up to 0.3% THC. However, hemp plants produce a number of other important cannabinoids, most notably cannabidiol (CBD), and their fibers are used to produce a range of textiles.

To break it down even further, there are numerous strains within each of the more general categories indica, sativa, and hybrid. Understanding and becoming familiar with these various strains is what will really enable you to target — on a specific level — the type of experience you have when consuming weed.

How to tell male from female marijuana plants

Typically, you will be able to distinguish between male and female cannabis plants when the plant is about six weeks old. To figure out the sex of a marijuana plant , look at the plant’s nodes, where the leaves and branches connect to the main stem.

Male plants will produce pollen sacs that at first look like little tiny balls and then grow into larger clusters of oblong-shaped sacs. Conversely, a female weed plant will produce pistils, which in their early stages look like thin hairs and then eventually start growing into more structured ovules and stigmas.

There is one very important reason why it’s crucial to be able to distinguish male from female plants: Only female plants produce flowers. Because male plants produce pollen sacs, they do not generate any of the buds that people actually harvest and consume. From the perspective of growing weed for human consumption, male plants are really only good for propagating brand new baby plants from seed.

With the exception of consciously choosing to reproduce plants through pollination (as opposed to cloning a female plant), growers must carefully keep male plants away from female plants.

Hermaphrodite plants are a rare monecious plant, meaning it develops both male and female sex organs. Hermaphrodites are primarily formed if a female weed plant is exposed to extreme conditions during key stages of growth. Flowers from hermaphrodite plants will be full of seeds, making them very poor quality for consumption. To avoid this, growers must be experts at spotting both hermaphrodite and male plants early and then getting rid of them before they ruin nearby female plants.

Many breeders produce seeds that are feminized as a way to avoid male genetics. These feminized seeds only carry female genetics, and in most cases, is guaranteed to produce female plants. Another option is to grow auto-flowering strains, which are genetically engineered to automatically flower after a brief vegetative period of two to four weeks.

How to propagate cannabis plants

Knowing the parts of a marijuana plant is necessary for propagating cannabis plants. Propagation refers to the process of using one plant to create new plants. In general, cannabis growers do this in one of two ways:

  1. Cloning : Cloning is a popular method, as it allows you to get multiple baby plants from a single adult plant, without having to buy seeds or go through the longer process of germinating, planting, and growing a weed plant from seed. To clone a marijuana plant, carefully cut a branch away from the stem right at the node. From there, place the cutting into a growing medium, typically either suspended in water or inserted into a starter plug. When the cutting develops roots you can then transplant it into a larger container or the ground, depending on where you’re going to be growing the plant.
  2. Seeds: Growing from seed requires you to start from scratch, and is ideally suited to growers who are novices, growers who want to produce a new type or strain than what they’re already growing, and growers who don’t have a plant they want to replicate exactly. To grow a weed plant from seed, place a seed in some sort of starting medium such as rockwool or peat pellets and keep it moist until it sprouts. As the sprout develops leaves and roots, it will start requiring more and more light. When a decent little ball of roots has formed, transplant the baby marijuana plant to a larger container or the ground and proceed to feed, water, and ventilate it until the weed plant reaches maturity.

The cannabis plant has many different parts to it. Learn about the cola, calyx, trichomes and more.

Five plants that look like Marijuana: a helpful visual guide for law enforcement and the curious

Back when I lived in Tennessee, I attempted to grow cassava plants indoors over the winter with the help of some grow lights. They were sitting on a nice window seat by one of the front windows of my house. I kept the curtains drawn to help keep in some of the heat.

One night after setting them up I went for a walk and looked at my house from the road.

I suddenly noticed the window: the grow light (now I’d get a better one, like this model) behind the cassava silhouetted the leaves against the curtain and I was shocked. It totally looked like I was growing pot.

Seriously – it was a hilariously incriminating tableau, if harmless.

Cassava don’t look much like marijuana up close, but they do have a similar leaf shape. With a light shining through them and out into the dark front yard, it looked like Cheech and Chong’s house.

There are plenty of plants – like cassava – that can sometimes be confused with marijuana by folks that aren’t that good at taxonomy.

I thought it might be helpful for me to do a post containing some of the various plants that grow in Florida (and other subtropical to tropical locations) that you might see in landscapes, food forests and butterfly gardens which have a cursory resemblance to Cannabis sativa.

Here’s what Marijuana looks like:

Photo from Wikimedia commons.


Actually, the only time I’ve ever seen marijuana growing was when we rented a house down in South Florida.

Apparently someone had dropped seeds in the side yard because there was a sickly little plant there. The landlord pointed it out to us when we were inspecting the house for the first time, laughed, cracked a joke, then removed it.

So… let’s take a look at the look-alikes

Plants With Leaves That Look Like Pot

1. Coral Plant

This attractive flowering plant in the spurge family has leaves that look like marijuana; however, the milky latex, bright blooms and fleshy stems rapidly rule it out.

Before flowering it could perhaps be mistaken for pot; afterwards, there’s no way.

2. Cranberry Hibiscus

Latin name: Hibiscus acetosella

This member of the hibiscus family is often planted as an ornamental in warmer climates. It’s a perennial shrub with pink blooms that have burgundy throats. The leaves are edible raw or cooked, with a tart, lemony flavor.

If you were colorblind you might get worried about this one; otherwise, the red leaves should convince you that your potential criminal is just a plant enthusiast, not a drug dealer.

If the suspect has a tattoo of Bob Marley with a hookah beneath a glowing mushroom, however, all bets are off.

3. Rose Mallow/Scarlet Hibiscus

4. Cassava

5. Kenaf

I couldn’t help but be amused by this post. I can just see the alarm on your face when you looked into your window. The information for us who are ignorant of the look-alike plants (and the real one) is great.

Funny story: my little sister once bought a pair of earrings for my mom as a gift. The earrings were little gold marijuana leaves. Neither of them knew that’s what they were… my sister had just thought they were a pretty leaf design.

I had to tell them. “Uh… sis… those aren’t just pretty leaves!”

In retrospect, it would have been really funny if I just let mom wear them to church without telling her. My dad was the pastor at that point. Hee.

Hi My son got a tattoo on his arm when he was about 20. I asked him what it was and his answer was “Its a Canadian Maple Leaf” Time went by < about 5 years>when I learneed what it was. My family thought it was funny that he fooled me for so long.

I have something outside that actually looks exactly like marijuana. At first I thought it was. However, what is outside my house isn’t any of these plants. Any ideas?

Send me a pic – I’ll try to ID it for you.

content://media/external/file/24535. I haven’t been able 2 ID this plant or shrub. If you could enlighten me I’d be greatful. Thank you

If it has pink flowers and puts off long slim seed pods. It’s cleome. It grows prickly fleshy thorns as it grows.

If it grows tall and has pink flowers, good chance it’s a spider flower (cleome). The leaves are nearly identical to a pot plant.

The “Mexican Chaste Trees” on my college campus lead to numerous double takes.

I figured it was some non-THC containing legal hemp relative, until I tracked down one with an ID tag.

Chaste Tree is a good one for me to add – I have one of those growing in my yard for the bees and butterflies. It’s a hormone balancer for women… I think students might be disappointed if they smoked it. Or perhaps more balanced.

I grew Sunn Hemp (Crotolaria Juncea) as a cover crop in my front yard this summer and got quite a few people asking me what it was. I told them it was sunn hemp, and upon hearing the word “hemp” some of them gave me the most priceless facial expressions before walking away!

Don’t forget okra! Hear about the recent episode in the news?

No – I missed that one! I can imagine.

cops are not hired for their brains

I could tell you a funny experience about not marijuana plants, but seeing as I am from the Netherlands I don’t have any. However, my step-dad has a really big bag of crushed marijuana underneath his reading chair and I thought that was pretty funny the first time I heard about it.
Thank you for this article, by the way, it was really helpful for my (cop-themed) fanfiction!!

I’m in Alabama we have plants growing they smell like home grown weed they have hairs on stalk and are sticky to the touch they favor weed but not quite I know they are not but I’m stumped as far as what they are they are only in front of porch what might they be your cassava favored it but only the spot in middle of leaves at the base they are jagged but pretty much shape and look the same

Nice site you have here – I came across your site because I was curious as to what some wild-growing plants at a park near my house were. They very much look like marijuana and from other web searches, it appears the only way to differentiate between it and hemp is to analyze the THC content in a lab or home test (something I was willing to do 25-30 years ago, but not anymore – note: I’m not against the legalization, I just don’t have the desire to use it myself), but I digress. Anyway, given the history of the park – there used to be low-level dealers until a Pot bust ended it, I guess the plants are from ‘renegade’ seeds that took root.

Cleome (aka spiderflower) is another cannabis lookalike:

You’re right – that’s a great one. Thanks for stopping by.

A very invasive species. Due to it’s many seed pods and poppy type seeds. Propagates well (understatement). I have it. Also has a pungent odor but a stand of them are beautiful. Appr. 4 to 5 ft tall.

Out of curiosity I have heard stories but is it safe to use the cassava leaf to roll marijuana in and smoke like a joint?

I have no idea, though I don’t believe it would work well for two reasons. 1. Cassava’s leaf shape would be no good for holding much of anything. 2. Cassava leaves contain cyanide, meaning the user would be inhaling some potential toxins along with their THC.

Water Hemlock, most poisonous plant in the USA was shown to the public as marijuana our City Police found. Lucky they didn’t kill people.

That’s pretty funny.

Its called weed because it grows just like it, anywhere and grows very quick and to any avid cannabis enthusiast a females flowers are a sight to behold.

Thank you for your post; I am trying to identify a plant that is mistaken (I hope) for weed (I live in Tn.) and I am glad for this article

Thank you, Patricia.

kenaf is hemp in farsi, or Hibiscus cannabinus, also referred to as Indian hemp, the agricultural kind used for fiber and rope making, middle easterners also salt and smoke the seeds that are eaten like peanuts. American hemp is Cannabis sativa and a different plant also used for biomass and ropes

[…] I would say that same and similar are very dis-similar! At times similar look can be deceptive and the two can be completely different. For egjample look here. […]

Best reply ever. Learn to punctuate. It’ll ad credence

Lol i wish people understood how much weed can mess u up. my friend got such bad hallucinations from it, a family member of mine was drinking while they smoked weed and went psychotic. totally messed up their lives. dont be dumbasses guys

I have something growing wild on my property that looks kind of like a marijuana plant. It’s actually kind of funny. I didn’t think much of it until, my husband said “looks like the person that owned the house before grew marijuana” lol! It’s not one of the ones in your list though. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what it is. Do you know wild plants that have a resemblance, in NY?

No, unfortunately. Not sure. It might be marijuana, though.

Another little laugh for everyone….about 30 years ago, I went to my cousin’s house to borrow heels to wear. I went to her closet and there was this giant plant with lights on it. At the time, I was about 18, and I didn’t know what marijuana looked like or that much about it. I asked her, “What’s the deal with the plant and light in your closet? If you brought it down to your living room, it would probably get enough light to grow.” Then she told me it was marijuana. I never exited a house so fast in my life. I told her the next day if she wanted her shoes back, she could come get them. 🙂 I guess I could have done a drive-by and thrown the shoes on her lawn.

I’ve now been gardening for a little over 20 years and know what a lot of plants are and look like, as I grow about 150 different varieties. I love Kenaf and do grow it. I love Hibiscus plants. Numerous types. I’ve had friends and family see the Kenaf and Cleome plants and tell me I’m growing pot. I just smile and ask them how long they’ve been gardening. Everyone that I know (except a master gardener friend) has a brown thumb. So then I explain to them what plants they are. They ask if I’m worried someone will pick it thinking it’s pot, and I just reply that if they do, they just may end up with one bad headache afterwards. I read that somewhere online. Not sure how true it is. They also wouldn’t have access to it unless they jumped my fence. I do most of my tropicals in flower pots since I’m in Zone 5.

A lot of my flowers have professional plant markers and say what they are. I would hope law enforcement would research something first before arresting someone. Perhaps taking samples of the leaves and having them analyzed. Otherwise, I could see a possible lawsuit against them, which would be unfortunate for all involved. And I have complete respect for law enforcement, as I have friends and family that fall under that category. I just always think it’s best to research, then take action. 😉

For those that love all different types of plants like I do, I say grow it. Unless, of course, it’s illegal to do so. Happy gardening, folks!

You should add the Japanese Maple leaf!

You’re right – that’s a good one.

Yeh hearing you brother

Good response. People just detest differing opinions, it seems. These folks who profess, so spitefully, to LOVE cannabis…really? Really? Huh? Could have fooled me. Way to represent.

Thank you, Derek.

Hi there! You were introduced to me via Justin Rhodes’ videos. I found a plant growing wild and wanted to identify it, and well, low and behold, I run into you here! I am still perplexed as to what it is I have, a hibiscus or maybe a hemlock? Is there any way I could send you a photo?

Absolutely – send me a shot. My email address is:

david ( at ) the survival gardener ( dot ) com.

Hi. I’m looking for a particular weed that randomly started growing in my landscape after 10 years. I’ve been on so many sites I can’t see straight.
I liked your page a lot till I got to the part about going to arrest the guy with the tattoo instead of you. Yeah, I smoked maybe a dozen times in my life, was a heavy drinker too. Yet I didn’t get any of my tattoos until recently. So I find that comment offensive and judgemental. But I mean no harm and don’t hold it against you. Some people are just plain ignorant about certain things therefore should not speak of them.
Anyway, this plant/weed has one stem then, I guess you’d say it branches off into several of these leaf “clusters”. Each “cluster” has 5 leaves. I don’t know anything about this stuff so it is hard to explain.
I was wondering if I too could send you a picture and you could tell me what you might think it is? Just let me know and where to send it. Just so you know in advance, I am technology stupid! I hate it all.
Thank you for your time.

Got the email and responded. I am definitely judgemental and offensive. The cops do profile people, like it or not.

But! That plant you sent me the image of: Aesculus pavia. Red buckeye. Great find. Another palmate leaf. I was thinking of planting a buckeye in my yard but processing the seeds to make them edible was too much work.

I can’t believe you don’t have an almost dead look-alike on the list: Potentilla Erecta

It has 7 leaves and looks just like cannabis. The exception (aside from NOT being cannabis) is the leaf tips aren’t pointy to the extent that cannabis is. I was freaking out thinking it was growing all over my property until I discovered that it wasn’t Cannabis! Whew, LOL.

Add that one to your list…

Sorry, that should be Potentilla ‘recta’ not ‘erecta’. My typo.

Loved reading ..most of this lol and I did find out what a plant was growing in my wild flower garden. Potentilla recta! Thanks I did not want to google any more. Wtg Dtg and Sean.

Hope u got the next post of just use purple as my name on blog thx

Castor Bean plant and a house plant – False Aralia – can sometime be look alikes…
Cool article. Thank you!

I found a dead ringer for the cannabis plant however it only has three leaves and at the end of the stems grows a small yellow flower. I live in SE Ohio. I swore this was some pot, found it growing in a ditch ….all by itself! I posess a green thumb so I brought it home and re- planted it. The stalk is now purple and I’ve found two more just like it by my house! What is this called please!

I may have that same weed here at my place. Can you send me a picture?

What plant have THC like marijuana.?

Some of those don’t really look like weed at all. Should’ve added Cleome, that one does.

Yes – that one is a dead ringer. Good addition.

I know this is several years later, but folks might find this interesting …

Headline: “Police mistook hibiscus plants for marijuana, arrested Buffalo Township couple, suit claims.” Apparently the cops were tipped off by the couple’s insurance agent who was in their backyard investigating an unrelated claim. The cops went in and terrorized the couple.

That’s nuts. Thank you for the link.

What about Plerandra elegantissima otherwise known as False Auralia?

What all of you pro-marijuana guys / gals fail to realize is that it has other side effects that will over take you completely. If you feel anxiety and paranoia and feel a rush of anxious thoughts – research Nux Vomica as a possible antidote (available also at Amazon, also research “anti dote to marijuana”.

Nux Vomica? Contains large quantities of strychnine, so it makes a very poor “antidote” for anything…except life.

Not if it’s homeopathic!

I purchased a small house plant, that has like a bamboo trunk ( it also had a waxed top) it grew pretty willowing leaves that looked like marijuana leaves. I have found out that it is a sensitive plant , if watered too much all the leaves would fall off. It would sprout new branches and grow taller. I have moved and it did not get enough water, so the stalk has dried out, and I’m afraid it’s gone. I have been searching for another but I have no idea what it could be called, any ideas?

I’ll need to take a picture, but I found a weed/plant growing in our garden bed the other day, that to me looks like marijuana. However, my husband says it’s a wild strawberry plant. The leaves are in groupings of 5, have the serrated edges like marijuana, with the leaves gradually getting bigger toward the center leaf. Could it be a wild strawberry? I’m in Maryland, so not sure it could be marijuana anyway.

Not a plant i guess, but the chestnut tree in my yard drops chestnuts that get scattered all over and the new baby trees that grow have an identical leaf to marijuana. They have thin serrated leaves in groups of 5 or 7 that grow opposite each other in the spring. Then they get more wide and fan out as the summer comes. Very convincing until the stalk turns woody.

Yeah, I’ll bet. Sounds like a horse chestnut.

I’m trying to ID a plant that looks similar to marijuana. Thin pointed leaves (5 on a stem) with red veining. Grows upright. I thought it might be in the tropical family — maybe a hibiscus, but I can’t find a similar picture.

I found the name : Ming Aralia, thanks for all the suggestions

My Texas 5-Star Hibiscus has leaves that many visitors to our backyard do double-takes to because the 5 point leaves look suspicious. 😉

Before Cannabis was legalized here, I had an artificial Japanese Maple tree, and had police at my door inquiring about the plant I was “growing” in my house.. One of my neighbors saw it through the window and thought it was Cannabis. When I showed the police my rare Cannabis plant, they thought it was pretty hilarious, considering the leaves are red and it was plastic.. lol!

Bruh I love pot… I came here too see how i could rip someone off and I only got the leaf look alike what plants have similar buds?

To: Cannabis, you need to get off the pot and go back to school to learn how to write and speak properly, then maybe, you might be smart enough to rip someone off!

I found small kenaf plant growing in the garden, (in Kenya) Shit atfirst i was so happy i found weed growing in our compound. But i wasnt quite convinced it was weed, so i googled plants that resemble pot and found this post. Thank goodness i was about to do some cbd oil extraction

If you see it at a glance and don’t know what your really looking for Virginia Creeper can look like MJ it can also look like Poison Ivy.

Anybody that looks up a pot plant online will know instantly that any of those plants are not marijuana plants I’ve grown a lot of pot in my days and I know the police would never mistaken those I’m so glad that we’re finally coming out of our backward s way of thinking about pot despite what people may tell you it’s virtually harmless you can’t overdose and nobody’s going out robbing and stealing to get their marijuana fixed that shit just don’t happen and people that have been smoking for a while and that are familiar with it can get in a vehicle and drive just fine as long as they’re not drinking or on any other drugs alcoholics crash and kill people us stoners just miss our exits pot is the only drug that I’ve done that hasn’t had a negative impact on my life or came close to ruining my life start make far more good than harm and coming from an ex-heroin addict it got me off of methadone when I got on methadone to get off heroin and I just couldn’t get off the methadone for nothing until I started smoking weed again now it’s all I do I don’t drink I don’t smoke I don’t do any drugs I just smoked my bud and it treats my anxiety and my depression along with numerous other ailments that come up along the way

lol! you “poor” ignorant anti marijuana saps.. + profiling like cops = dumbasses. normally i wouldn’t respond to crap like this, i avoid ignorance but i’m a “stupid, ignorant, tatted, hoodlum, that’s been smoking marijuana on and off for 36 years” It was marijuana that helped me stay sober for 9 years so far, to the point i don’t think about drinking after drinking for 22 years. Which would’ve been 31 years of drinking had it not been for marijuana. So i guess the guy who said that earlier, that you insulted, compounded by the fact of my sobriety AND has been proven to help people get off opioids PROVES HOW F IN STUPID AND SHALLOW MINDED YOUR DUMB ASSES ARE!!

If you have a plant that looks like pot – wait – it might be harmless! Check out these five plants that look like marijuana.
