Grow houses tax depleted police force

So reads the headline in today’s newspaper. It led me to wonder how foreigners ever learn English. All six words are – or at least can be – verbs. In case you are having trouble parsing that sentence, “grow houses” (the subject) are houses used to grow marijuana, and the verb is “tax” while “depleted” is an adjective. I think you can manage “police force” on your own.
