Woman Sues Government For Cutting Down Her Garden?
Ms. Morrison had more than 100 plant varieties in her front and back yards. The yard was filled with flowers, lemon, stevia, galic chives, grapes, strawberries, apple mint, spearmint, peppermint, and several fruit and nut trees.
She claims that many of the plants were for everyday use, while some were used to treat her diabetes, arthritis, and high blood pressure. She also made sure that when growing the plants she followed the city’s code.
The code reads that no plant shall be above 12 inches tall, unless it is for human consumption. Even though she told city code enforcement officers that all the plants were for consumption, it seems the officers did not care to hear about the law being obeyed but rather were intent on being tyrannical.
