An anti-marijuana activist in Utah says a prop he used to during a committee hearing at the State Capitol shows how strongly he opposes having legal medical cannabis in Utah.

Walter Plumb created a stir when he pulled a plastic bag from his pocket at a House Health and Human Services Committee hearing yesterday.

He then criticized state lawmakers for loosening regulations, comparing them to Mexican drug cartels.

Plumb was cut off and a UHP trooper was sent into the room to investigate his outburst.

Plumb later revealed he did not actually have a bag of weed.

The bag contained clippings from his lawn.

Plumb admitted after the hearing that it wasn't actually weed that he pulled from his pocket.
