“No Drugs!” reads a sign at a pub in Birmingham – or at least only if you "spend a penny" it seems.
Police discovered £5,000 worth of marijuana being grown in the women’s’ toilets at the Laffin Few in Tipton, the Birmingham Mail reported.
Ironically, the discovery was made within the vicinity of a sign displayed on the wall of the pub that stated: “No Drugs! Anyone caught will be banned for life.”
But despite the warning, more than 110 cannabis plants were found growing during a surprise raid on Tuesday.
Tipton Green Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) tweeted: “Shame this establishment didn’t heed its own sign huh? Licensee to be dealt with.”
