Potholes Become Pot Holes When Frustrated Residents Fill Holes With Pot Plants

Some California potholes are now pot holes. Residents of Nevada City, CA residents got tired of waiting for the city to fill potholes and did it themselves- with pot plants.

According to the Nevada County Scooper, a resident came up with the idea after his bike fell into one of the potholes. He called a friend who donated the plants and they filled four of the potholes with them. Other residents followed suit, filling more holes with the plants.

So far, the plants are still in the holes and there's no word from city government on when the holes will be filled with actual asphalt.

After looking at the site, I'm certain this article is from a parody website.

Could be. I did see it on a couple other news sites as well...
