According to TMZ reports:
Life isn’t all bad for our heroes in uniform in Afghanistan … especially when they encounter MASSIVE marijuana fields as these photos show … but we’ve learned these photos have triggered a military investigation.
A bunch of guys who appear to be soldiers whipped out their cameras … and their weapons … and posed for a bunch of pics while out on patrol in Kabul recently.
No word on the identity of the soldiers … or when the pics were taken. Note — the photos DO NOT show any of the soldiers smoking the weed, but there is a shot of the guys decorating the inside of their vehicle with cannabis leaves.
We spoke to U.S. Army officials … who tell us the situation is “being looked into” … noting, “The U.S. military takes allegations of drug possession, transfer, distribution, and use very seriously.”
The Army also notes that Afghan anti-drug units, aided by international security forces, have resulted in a tremendous increase in drug seizures over the past year.
Ironically, the baseball caps 2 of the soldiers are wearing are as problematic as the weed. Soldiers caught wearing non-military issue headgear can get in big trouble.
Hit the flip to see the men that protect our country acting like kids in a candy store.
