Which pot is the best pot for growing pot?

While we don't have a definitive answer for that question, we can tell you a city-owned flower planter isn't it.

Parks Department employees in Powell, Wyo. were tending to the downtown planters earlier this month when they realized a few of these things were not like the others.

It wasn't hard for them to figure out they just found marijuana.

"They had seen enough T-shirts, I guess," Powell Police Chief Roy Eckerdt told Next.

The Parks Department let police know about the illicit weeds among the flowers.

Cops found one marijuana plant in three different planters. Eckerdt says they were 6 to 8 inches tall, meaning they'd been growing for a while.

"If it started from the seed, which is my estimation - if someone walked by and stuck one in the middle of each planter, it's about the time frame of when our college students started leaving," he said.

Eckerdt adds that's pure speculation, and police aren't sure who planted the greenery. The Parks Department plans to keep a closer eye on their planters now.

Officers collected the three plants they found and will destroy them.

We couldn't help but ask if Eckerdt found humor in any of it...

"I'm hesitant to say that."

...but he did agree that the pot, found north of our border where marijuana is still illegal, is The Most Colorado Thing We Saw Today.

"I believe it would be."
