Police in Ipswich have found cannabis growing on the hard shoulder of the A14.
Officers say the illegal plant, which appears to have been found growing near a slip road off the dual carriageway, "is now in the custody of Suffolk police".
Ipswich police posted to social media about the forbidden flora, saying: "You'll be amazed at some of the things we come across on the A14 in Ipswich.
"Safe to say the cannabis plant is now in the custody of Suffolk Police."
Cannabis is a Class B drug in the UK, meaning it is illegal for recreational use and anyone found with it could face a lengthy prison sentence or an unlimited fine.
