A small town in Michigan has a new gadget to crack down on smelly marijuana plants.
The town voted to spend roughly $3,400 on The Nasal Ranger, a field olfactometer manufactured by St. Croix Sensory that can sniff out smelly weed.
“The city of Bessemer stinks. You can smell marijuana everywhere,” Council Member Linda Nelson said at a recent meeting. “We’ve got people who can’t sit in their backyard because the smell from their neighbor is so bad.”
This is where the Nasal Ranger comes into play: The device can measure and quantify odor strength in the ambient air, according to the product’s webpage. It can notify users about the strength of the odor they are trying to sniff out, such as pot.
Police officers will also be trained on the device, so they can help regulate neighbors’ “weed farms” efficiently and properly fine individuals who don’t comply with the law.
Man…this town needs to chill out a bit!
