Last year I pulled up a perfectly good plant that the seeds had apparently either been dropped by a bird or the wind had blown it there out of my flower garden, it looked an awful lot like the illegal pot plant, after pulling it up I had an expert look at it and he said it was not a pot plant. So it got me to wondering, whats the odds of this actually happening? I grow flowers but I'm not an expert on what most plants look like, what about the area around my property that we don't regularly mow. I'm not looking to grow anything illegal just the opposite, worried one could possibly end up doing so, like for instance a bird eats something with the seed on it, and flys through the air of course a short distance but in reality is say 25 miles away drive and drops the seed there. Is it possible? Planes fly over the fields often here looking for pot, one time a cop pretending he was looking for another house number, mines posted clearly, stopped he was staring at my tigerlilies and pretended he had the wrong address, yeah right. Finally since he was so interested I told him what they were. He left. We have a 911 system here so he should have had no problem finding the person he was looking for and since the number he was looking for was entirely different than mine he had no reason to be here. Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

The circumstances would have to be just right for the plant to grow.

It would grow, as long as its spring or later. It may not flower, but as long as it has 12 hours of sunlight it will grow.

More than likely you stumbled across a naturally occuring plant that resembled cannabis
