    Long ago, i did find a "suspicious" plant in the house of a relative. Then i get one leaf of it, and kept it with me, waiting for a day when i would show it for someone knowledgeable, and know if it was weed or not.
    Thats the picture of the leaf. The background of it was erased for security reasons (a.k.a. paranoia)... :stoned:
    So, its weed or not?

    PS.The real size of the leaf is some 4 inches.

    well, a plant called a japanese maple has leaves that resemble a weed leaf except they are red/purple.

    if that leaf you got there came off a small tree then thats most likely what it was.

    If you follow the links I provided in my above post, you'll find that one common name for Vitex is "Hemp Tree."

    Indeed... there is even a species called Vitex cannabifolia.

    It was originally green... but its 4 yrs old, thats why it became dark.
    This is a picture of the entire plant. It was among another different plants. It was some 2 feet tall.

    It hasnt the characteristic serrate leaflets...

    I think it isnt... the leaflets arent serrate like cannabis... its shape is rounder, and different from the usual cannabis leaf.

    PS. 2,100th post!

    Japanese maples grow in the southern US in shades from bright lime green to dark green or yellow in fall. There are a very small amount of the red and purple Japanese maples though.

    Cannabis leaves are always serrated in odd numbers I believe, so that is one way to tell.

    There may be a few plants that one might ponder and suspect of being cannabis...

    but when ya stumble on a plant that is cannabis, it is in your face obvious.

    It is extremely unique looking. Sucks for farmers : (

    I dont know... but surely it isnt weed... like Melodious fellow said, if you stumble on a cannabis plant you will know it. Maybe we stoners have an extra sense for detecting weed... :jointsmile:
