Cannabis lamps help Warwickshire County Cricket Club's pitch
West Midlands Police gave the lamps free of charge to the club to use at their ground in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
The grow lights will be used to heat up the soil and replicate warmer conditions.
Warwickshire's ground is a venue for international matches, as well as county cricket.
Charlie Dagnall, a Test Match Special commentator and former Warwickshire bowler, said he backed the idea.
"If this is like sticking a greenhouse over the pitch and makes it more lively it can only be a good thing," he said
Admin Footnote: Anyone knowing of a redundant cannabis farm in the area, please notify the groundsman!!!!

East Leeds Cricket Club
The Central Yorkshire League will revert to separate first XI and second XI competitions next season, with 12 clubs at Premiership level, eight in the newly-named Championship and the remaining eight in Division One. Places have been allocated on the basis of last season’s finishing positions.
Since 2002, there has been a mix of first and second XIs in all divisions outside the top flight and it is only two years since clubs voted to stick to that format.
This time, however, in response to an official proposal for change submitted by Altofts CC, the League’s management committee was required by constitution rules to discuss and decide on the issue.
As in recent seasons, Premiership clubs will meet home and away for a total of 22 fixtures, but teams in the other sections will play each other three times for a total of 21 matches.
Promotion and relegation will be two-up, two-down, with the bottom two clubs in Division One required to seek re-election.
First XI competition
Premiership Townville, Methley, Wakefield Thornes, Carlton, Wrenthorpe, Birstall, Hunslet Nelson, Mirfield Parish Cavaliers, Ossett, Altofts, Hopton Mills, Scholes.
