Just when you thought the record-breaking heat wave couldn't be more destructive, the Tulsa World is reporting it is ruining the Oklahoma marijuana harvest.
Marijuana plants are withering under the blistering heat in Oklahoma this summer.
However, if the crops survive and drug investigators seize it, they can't burn the drugs due to the burn ban, said Mark Woodward, a spokesman with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Plus, you can always just sit around your living room and get drunk. At least that's the more socially acceptable thing to do.
