Marijuana possums no dopes

Herald Sun

NEW Zealand police have an unusual ally in their annual crackdown on illegal marijuana crops -- possums.

"They love it, absolutely love it," Det John Nicholls, of Motueka, said after returning from a week-long police and air force helicopter hunt for marijuana plants at the top of the South Island.

He said one crop was "chewed to bits -- it was the worst I've ever seen".

Growers use electric fences, cyanide paste and traps to deter possums.
