Now we know why they call it High Street. Police in Millville, New Jersey have confirmed the odd-looking plants they pulled from a flower basket in September in Millville's business district were indeed marijuana plants.
The plants were discovered and reported by a passer-by. Police responded to the scene with a ladder and confiscated the 3-foot-tall plants, which were growing in a basket hanging from a lamppost.
Representatives of the city's parks and recreation department, which tends to the baskets, say they have no idea how the pot plants got there.

The Wonder Bra might become a best seller among bikers in Vietnam. The country's communist rulers are set to ban small-chested bikers from riding on that country’s roads.
According to published reports, anyone with a chest under 28 inches in circumference will be banned from driving a motorbike, which make up 90% of the traffic in the country.

Jessie Vigil's black-and-white car sports a red-and-blue emergency bar across the top and the word "police" painted on the doors. Vigil, however, isn't a cop. Law enforcement agencies say what he's done with his car isn't illegal as long as he doesn't act like a police officer.
Vigil, of Las Vegas, New Mexico, started decorating his 2007 Ford Mustang last summer to look like the police cruiser in the "Transformers" movie because his 7-year-old son, Thomas, was fond of the film.
A Connecticut man has been rejected in his bid to become a police officer for scoring too high on an intelligence test.
Robert Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, took an exam to join the New London police, in Connecticut, in 1996 and scored 33 points, the equivalent of an IQ of 125.

Jordan launched a federal lawsuit against the city, but lost.
