It is frequently the situation, when stores go out of business, they’ll have a closing-down sale, where what’s left in stock is sold off for anything they could get for this.
But when the place that is closing down is really a cannabis farm which has been captured by authorities and is already hitting headlines, it is fair to say they are probably not having a closing-down sale, nor will they be giving off whatever’s left in stock.
Then again, as this humorous footage reveals, one guy thought he’d take his chances and then pop to the farm to find out if he could put his hands on any bargains.

Fortunately for us, the hapless childhood has been captured on camera with a news crew that just happened to do a live broadcast outside.
The absurd moment was filmed by KMTV, as local news anchor, Cameron Tucker, was giving a report about a couple who were caught growing cannabis in a lovely little thatched cottage.
Yvette along with Neil Hartley narrowly avoided prison, despite authorities finding a large 88 cannabis plants growing at the #500,000 cabin in rural Hoath, Kent.
The pair were given a suspended sentence Monday, May 16, however the local TV crew went to the cabin for the night news the following moment.
The young man, wearing a dark t-shirt and shorts, strolled around the corner of this building carrying what might easily be mistaken for a particular illegal drug.
When he realised that he was on camera the lad took off at a rush, clinging to his plant, also ran from shot.
The information presenter, that turns around and watches the unfortunate man, doesn’t quite know what to do following the suspicious second, and calmly tries to carry on with the broadcast.
Kent Police are mindful of the footage but are unaware of any new offenses related to it.
The couple who were growing the plants claimed they were producing it for their usage, and stated their stash could be utilized to earn cannabis oil to treat cancer.
Neil, 45, also Yvette, 48, both pleaded guilty to creating the Class B drug, however, a sympathetic judge spared the pair prison, in Canterbury Crown Court on Monday, May 14.
Recorder Jonathan Davies took pity on the couple, who ran a ‘well established cannabis factory’ included in ‘a much larger performance’, stating:
You risked their stocks by your conduct since you must have understood the results of everything you were doing.
I am not positive if both of you has ever told the truth about this surgery, which might have involved daily attention and has been done for monetary reasons.
I guess the cannabis oil was just a smokescreen to cover up the character of it.
Each of those growers was extended a 22-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to take out 150 hours of work.
The couple, who’ve since moved, were also told they had to remain at their house below a 12-week night-time curfew order.
As for the lad with the large plant, I guess we’ll never know…
