A man was spotted on Vienna's U3 metro underground line traveling with a shopping trolley that contains what looks suspiciously like a small cannabis plant on the weekend.

The image, which has not been independently authenticated, appears to show the man, who is apparently not wearing a shirt, holding on to a shopping trolley with a plant with spiky leaves clearly visible.  He is riding on a carriage of the U3 line.

The picture was posted by a member of the public on the Facebook page of the Vienna public transport authority, known as Wiener Linien.

In a response on Facebook, Wiener Linien commented that the person taking the picture should have notified authorities if he felt that something illegal was taking place.
