See I'm going to go the exact opposite of this comment and say as a farker whose parents were doing this exact same thing in there garage growing up it puts unnecessary amount of stress on the child. I was scared on a regular basis that a family member or friend was going to see our grow op and call the cops. I was never allowed to have friends over to play or sleep over.

gopher321: 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.


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 remember thinking it was a conundrum whether someone should be turned in for letting their 13yo smoke weed. This was because I had been consistently misinformed my whole life as to the "dangers" of marijuana. Then I grew up & went to work in an industry where 90% of the people I worked with smoked pot @ work. Even though I never got into it myself, I did learn how harmless it is.

I'm just saying when I was a teenager, I was woefully ignorant about reality when it comes to drugs. He'll probably sharpen up in a decade or so.

4seasons85!: Ok, cool story time.

I've always known my dad to be a bit uptight and strict. I guess that's the military in him. Anyway, one day while looking for a book to read in his library I found a little book entitled, "How to Grow Pot in your Backyard". I took the book, hid it behind my back, went up to my dad and asked him, "hey dad have you ever smoked pot?" of course the answer was "no", so I whipped out the book and said, "so why did I find this in the bookshelf?". Blank face. I laughed so hard! The book disappeared however my dad is far less uptight and we can talk about crazy things now. Maybe he was excited I found the book? Maybe I should check his garden? Hmmmm...


My mom, whom I've never seen even drink, called several months ago. She's 72, is in quite a bit of pain - arthritis, various joint problems. My cousin was up visiting and had talked her into trying some weed for the pain (cousin is an old hippie, and always has some somewhere.). Mom sounded better than she had in years. I told her keep going and enjoy it. She no longer thinks its the work of the devil. She's actually quite fond of weed now.

You bet your ass if I make it to 72, that's going to be breakfast every morning.

So, what are all the legal things you can do to the kid? No beatings. That's against the law. But, there's many creative things to be done, legally.

He'd lose everything except school books, bed, blanket, sheet, pillow, a handful of clothes. Nothing designer. It will all be Walmart. No, on second thought, Goodwill. If he's been given any xbox, TV, or anything else, sell all that to pay for lawyers, fine, and so on.

No TV. No internet. No phone.

You could pull him from every extra-curricular activity. Curfew would be immediately after school where he'd return to a room with his schoolbooks. If you're done with homework you can sit on the floor until bedtime at 8 PM unless he's doing his numerous chores.

No drivers license or car, obviously. Deny permission for after school job.

On the morning of his 18th birthday, at one minute past, hand him a paper bag and tell him to pack his clothes and get off of your property. If he returns, remember castle doctrine. Dad probably can't own a firearm any longer, but he can sure own a baseball bat.

Riiight. Nothing says "personal use" like 18 plants and 12 baggies with 2 grand in cash lying around.
In addition, they were growing it in the kid's room.
So we've got two upstanding citizens, dealing drugs out of their children's room and you compare that to drinking wine with dinner. I'm really hoping you're not a parent.

And I don't think having 2K cash in the house can be automatically assumed "drug money" for this particular couple.

When I smoke pot for personal use, I like to keep it in 12 separate baggies and ten separate containers.

So you just mix all your beer and liquor together in one container? That's pretty efficient.

Sigh. No facepalm big enough for that profoundly pathetic false equivalency.

Please explain in detail why it is a false equivalency.


Well as a ex-weed dealer a long time smoker I can say 12 baggies is not necessarily intent to distribute. If you are a connoisseur then having 12 different kinds of weed in 12 different baggies is normal. The same weed in 12 different baggies says something else. Though I often have 3 containers of the same weed. One is a travel container, one is a home/frequent use container and the third is a bulk container only opened to refill the other two.

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.

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


When the cops say, "18 plants", what that means is 3 flowering plants, 3 immature plants that aren't large enough for flowering yet, and a dozen little seedlings in a sprouting tray. Based on my own research, theirs sounds like a typical set-up for home consumption. You have to keep multiple plants at every stage because plants fail sometimes. Even when fully mature, Indoor growing produces much smaller plants than outdoors. The outdoor plants I used to encounter as a young man in Kentucky would be 8 feet tall, but the pics I see of indoor grows look more like shrubs, harvested at anywhere from 2' to 5' tall, depending on the breed.

Ok, well, if you plan to get college financial aid, you shouldn't do that. The only reason I don't smoke pot (as opposed to drinking alcohol) is that the farked up laws made it illegal and debilitating to me.

Now, as a professional deep into my career at age 40, I suppose I could smoke pot. But I don't, simply because I don't want the legal hassle.

My advice to you is change the laws and don't put yourself in jeopardy. I feel for this couple only because I know the political history of pot versus alcohol, and it's a shame to see people serving their communities go down on technicalities.

Well, I do appreciate your concern for the children (sincerely). And while not a parent, I was a teen once. I've been around long enough to see the gray areas, especially those that exist in law enforcement.

I do not believe they were dealers, based on the fact they had 18 plants (probably in various stages of growth)...most alcohol drinkers have well more than that amount of "high" on hand. I'm not a pot smoker or dealer, but I honestly don't know how anyone could run a "grow operation for dealing" with 18 plants. But iwasnt there...who knows, maybe they were charging their shady friends for hits.

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.

Sorry Billy, you can't invite your friends over for the night.... they might see the grow room. Whatever you do Billy, make sure Aunt Helen does not go downstairs.... she might see the grow room. Don't EVER tell your teachers what we do down in the basement Billy, you'll destroy our family if you tell. Sorry Billy, your grandparents can't come over for Christmas, they're a bunch of nosey narcs..... they might find the grow room. A home is supposed to be a place where a child feels safe. These selfish bastards took that away from their children.

Jesus Christ, are you really this thick? Do I really have to do this? Is it possible even a pothead would be this dumb? Okay.

Alcohol and pot are different volumes. One is a liquid, one is a solid. A baggie of pot can get someone good and farked up. A baggie of beer wouldn't get someone even slightly buzzed. You also couldn't keep beer in a baggie. They are different properties. Therefore more actual alcohol is required than pot for personal use. Thus, the containers to hold alcohol are necessarily larger and varied in size. No one could ever smoke a keg of pot, even if they had a big party.
Alcohol is legal, and sold in stores. People are free to buy a little or a lot, as they feel appropriate. Therefore, it is sold in both large and small containers. Pot is illegal and not sold in any containers. There would never be a reason to put pot into dozens of small "containers" unless you planned to distribute it to dozens of people. Contrarily, one buys smaller containers of alcohol is because one only wants a little bit of alcohol, or doesn't have the room at home to store a lot. Nobody ever buys a large quantity of alcohol and then puts it in smaller homemade containers at their apartment.

Now that I'm done explaining the most rudimentary life shiat to a troll, I'm going to take a silkwood shower. And then maybe hop back on the net and explain to other poster why we stop at red lights and go at green lights.


This is correct. I know because I'm an expert. Pot is only ever sold in one amount. It doesn't come in any sort of container. When you buy pot, the dealer just pours it straight into your hands. You then have to take it home and add it to any pot you previously had, which is either in a single bag, or just a pile on the floor. This is OK because it's a solid, and solids don't always need containers. It's also why anyone who buys more than a single baggie at once should be considered a drug dealer.

Well if our Draconian drug laws didn't prevent peaceful citizens from putting a harmless plant in their backyard, none of this dumb shiat would have happened to begin with.

People who perpetually chase intoxication aren't usually the brightest bulbs in the box, not news. But the majority of the predicaments that make headlines wouldn't even have occurred if the peaceful citizen didnt have to worry about a felony and a burger flipping future for their minor buzz at the end of the day.

So we've got two upstanding citizens, dealing drugs out of their children's room and you compare that to drinking wine with dinner. I'm really hoping you're not a parent.


There are an awful lot of angry "potheads" in this thread who are threatening all kinds of things to this kid. Anything from "not getting invited to parties" to "beaten to a bloody pulp". They're also assuming that there's no possible way that this kid had shady characters coming into his house or that he might've felt unsafe.

Nope, just a knee-jerk reaction of "snitches get stitches" and then they WONDER why they can never seem to hold the moral high ground long enough to get any legislation passed in their favor?

How long do you think the gay rights (LGBT ect..) would've lasted if they were threatening to beat to a pulp any parents who disowned their gay kids? Or implied that anyone who wasn't gay wasn't going to have a happy or fulfilling social life?

Thankfully they didn't do that. They took the "high" road, as it were, and it's paying off big dividends for them.

/can't say the same for the pro-weed folks.


WTF? How does this bleed into the gay cause....really???? does gbt have anything to do with this? This is about a kid who didn't get what his parents already knew. His successful, tax paying parents, who are not a burden on society. These people are financially and emotionally supporting him (though he stupidly turns them in)

It is a shame.

Wow, I didn't know that all pot was the same and could be interchanged randomly. Only liquids need to be separated. Good to know. I had heard that there might be different strains with different properties and flavors, but I guess that was all a lie.

Medvedik has two children, ages 17 and 15 at the time of his arrest in late May. Shanfeld's children were 14, 12 and 10 at the time of her arrest.

If they have children that age from previous marriages, it seems unlikely that they also have teenage children themselves. I suspect that there is a lot we don't know about relationships within the family.

I had 3 plants yield around a quarter pound one time. So they were probably going to harvest around a pound and a half give or take. Growing it indoors can give you more crops per year so yeah they were obviously selling the pot. I only grew it for my ex who was blowing $400 a month on the crap.

Not enough information to make a judgement call. First reaction was that the kid was disgruntled about something. After some reflection I don't think growing pot in the basement is a good plan for two professionals with five kids, just from a practical point of view. They were doing something that was illegal (no matter how you feel about it) and that's risky. If nothing else they were maintaining an attractive nuisance.

They weren't just growing pot for their own use. They were high-level dealers, who probably let all sorts of shady characters in that house. No doubt the kid felt unsafe. He made the right call. Pretty much as a rule, if your own child feels compelled to call the cops on you for any reason, you've failed as a parent.

SquiggelyGrounders: Bob16: People really need to read Spenglers "The Decline Of The West" to understand this conflict that seems to be going on between Boomers and their kids.

Especially the part about cultural subjugation.

Please summarize.


I farked up the term. Spengler didn't call it "cultural subjugation" although i think thats a good description.

He called it "pseudomorphosis"

Pseudomorphosis[10] The concept of pseudomorphosis is one that Spengler borrows from mineralogy and a concept that he introduces as a way of explaining what are in his eyes half-developed or only partially manifested Cultures. Specifically pseudomorphosis entails an older Culture so deeply ingrained in a land that a young Culture can not find its own form and full expression of itself. This leads to the young soul being cast in the old moulds, in Spengler's words. Young feelings then stiffen in senile practices, and instead of expanding creatively, it fosters hate toward the other older Culture.

wireham: digitalrain: Speaking as a farkette whose father was dealing (to friends only - he didn't go trolling) when she was a kid...

Fark you, you narco douchenozzle.

See I'm going to go the exact opposite of this comment and say as a farker whose parents were doing this exact same thing in there garage growing up it puts unnecessary amount of stress on the child. I was scared on a regular basis that a family member or friend was going to see our grow op and call the cops. I was never allowed to have friends over to play or sleep over. Every visit with an aunt or uncle was making sure they had no reason to go in the garage. Home is supposed to be a place your kids feel safe not having to live in fear of CPS.


My dad never had a grow op. He just dealt it. So things were pretty normal for me. The only real
rule was "don't tell anyone". I still had the occasional sleepover, had birthday parties at the house,
etc...

I can see how your situation was more stressful, though.

I can remember on more than one occasion making 2 batches of brownies - one for me for snacks
and the "special" batch for the adults.

I don't know what was going through that kid's head. There's a lot of different reasons he could've done it. I'll just say though, from my own past, there was a time I could see myself doing the same. I swallowed that BS hook, line, and sinker. I thought it was important that everyone obeyed the law, and I hated corruption so much when people would profess to believe in something and then turn around and break their code and beliefs the moment it involved a family member or a friend. I don't know if that was what that kid was thinking, but if it was, then i understand.

Thankfully, I realized what a load of horse shiat that all was before I did anything stupid.

Based on news reports, most teens believe the results of calling the cops on your parents will be a few hours of Law and Order reality show in your house with the cops really putting your parents in their place, and then a few years or so of parents who have learned they can't just tell you what to do.

The law involvement usually has repercussions the kid forever regrets. This time at least the attempt at a reasoned and appropriate response has been adjusted to not quite a felony. Probably the best they could do given they are required to maintain a show of zero-tolerance.

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.
