Hippies enjoy celebrating Christmas too, police in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate said on Wednesday after they were stunned to find a two-metre marijuana plant decked out in twinkling lights during a drug bust.

“A hippie celebrates Christmas too ... just differently,” read the report, which was entitled “All you need is love,” because it fell on the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death.

Narcotics detectives stumbled on the unusual Christmas tree while searching the home of an “old 68er,” a reference to the groups of young students and workers who participated in political protests across Germany in 1968.

The man "more or less willingly" handed over 150 grammes of marijuana to the officers, but a further look around the apartment in the tiny town of Montabaur near Koblenz revealed a “peculiar 'Christmas tree'.”

The man had put a two-metre tall pot plant in a tree stand and adorned it with Christmas lights.

“In response to questions by the dumbfounded officers, the hashish fan confirmed that the ‘tree’ would be decorated further and, on Christmas, gifts would be arranged underneath according to tradition,” the statement said.
