I would love to know what was going though the kid's head.
 
2012-08-26 08:48:22 AM  
Yeah, that sounds like it wasn't just a home grow for their own consumption - who cares about that? Sounds more like they were dealing. Maybe the kid was scared some local punks would show up at their doorstep at 2am with a shotgun.


Or he was pissed at them for taking away his Xbox. Whichever.

Maybe he thought that if he turned them in he would live on his own, inherit all their things etc etc?

Or he and his buddies have their own grow-op somewhere in the neighbourhood and he was just eliminating the competition. I'd keep an eye on him, he might go all Tony Montana in the near future.

Probably retaliation for a punishment. I knew a girl when I was in my teens that told the police her parents were growing pot after she was put on restriction for breaking curfew. They weren't, but they were taken into custody for a day while their house was searched. The parents were released, the girl was fined thousands of dollars for filing a false report (which the parents had to pay).

With that in mind, just think of the power the kid would have over the parents if they actually were growing pot.

That's the only reason I could understand narc'ing on your parents, or anyone you had ties with. Now, if the parents were cooking up some meth in the basement, that's a whole other story.

On a slightly related note, the drug laws in this country really, really need to change. I don't do drugs, so this isn't for my benefit, but it's positively asinine that weed is illegal, and put at the same level as PCP, heroin, and crack. It's a farking plant. More people die from getting drunk and falling in the shower, than smoking too many joints. I'd rather sit next to someone who was higher than a kite, than sit next to a drunk or someone chain-smoking Marlboros.

I wonder if somebody tried to break in and the parents did nothing so the kid called the cops, either that or the parents were making the kid pay for his own stash.

You think anyone's going to invite him to the good parties knowing that he narced out his own parents?
 
2012-08-26 11:37:35 AM  
Obviously they rustled his jimmies enough to make him call the cops. Probably by making him sleep next to the artificial sun, since it says two of the kids live in that basement.

Pot laws in the USA are simply insanity. It is utter madness that so many people can walk around dead from the neck up on prescription drugs and that's "okey-dokey" but God forbid you pick up a joint and then it all "ZOMG JUNKIE THROW IN JAIL" and such.

Oh, and I will +1 on FirstNationalBastard view of his future social/dating life. He will be permanently inscribed into the DONOTINVITE list for life.

Hey son. We're back from jail. What an experience! You taught us that there is only right or wrong and we were definitely wrong. No more drugs for us. We're going to rehab and we're going to get our lives back together.

We want to thank you for intervening and setting us straight. We went to jail and we learned a new lesson about life while we were in there. It's a lesson we want to share with you. You already know right from wrong. Obviously. But here is a new absolute rule that we would like to share with you: Snitches get stitches.

I really don't see why kids today believe the DARE Just Say No propaganda.

I know millennials aren't exactly beloved by most, but at least they had the good sense to see through the anti-drug propaganda bullshiat.
 
2012-08-26 12:03:33 PM  

MasterAdkins: I would love to know what was going though the kid's head.


Kid's do not think shiat through much of the time.

What I don't think many parents understand is the wrong word out of a 5 year olds mouth, or one 14y/o's hormone blowup combined with anger over the phone they didn't get, the punishment for something they did get, or the grounding away from their PS3... all it takes is the wrong word overheard by the wrong person and the law will come down on them like a ton of bricks. Moral actions and good parenting be damned.

Many would say raising your kids with such disregard for the law alone is bad parenting. While I think there is room for a gray area... I can't disagree completely.

Moral of the story? Try to raise your kids to make good decisions, but don't bet the farm they are always going to do so.

My FIL is inclined to pissy moods where he takes it out on other people. I didn't know about this though for several years before we got married, and when I found out they were smoking pot one day I was pretty surprised. Turns out it drastically helps keep him from verbally attacking everyone around him. Not a fan of the stuff, but in his case, keep going man.
