While state after state adopts looser laws regarding marijuana here in America, one squad of British police appear to operate according to a simple overriding law when seizing massive amounts of cannabis. Be polite.

If someone broke into your home and stole all your illegal pot plants while you were out, you'd at least expect a note, right? That's apparently how Manchester police felt on Friday when they broke down a door to find an empty apartment, save 72 cannabis plants.
