KOLK, AFGHANISTAN (The Register) -- Canadian General Rick Hillier reports: "Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan are using 10-foot-tall marijuana forests as cover. These plants really absorb heat energy, & render infrared scanners useless." Burning them down proved impractical; soldiers downwind got too mellow to fight. The danger to the troops, however, IS very real; one remarked "Before I joined the Army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana!'."
