Agriculture is alive in Queens, but there's been a little setback on the road to the green future. Yesterday, the police busted a drug garden in someplace called Floral Park with "enough weed to make a stadium high." The little farm that could had 300 live marijuana plants and 10 lawn bags filled with drying weed. Also, the juice to run the weed farm was being stolen from the people next door and they were paying the Con Ed bill. Maybe they figured the big bills were a rate increase? Manhattanites have greener thumbs, though, an Upper West Side bust this spring turned up 700 plants. So, take that, Queens.
