Teen snitches on parents for growing weed in backyard

A North Canterbury teenager surprised police twice at the weekend - first when she phoned them to report cannabis growing in her back garden and second when she told them she believed either one or both of her parents were responsible.

A police spokesman said the 18-year-old called police on Saturday after finding two large cannabis plants "nestled amongst the shrubs" in the Woodend property.

The girl's parents were away for the Easter break and she had found the plants with visiting friends.

The spokesman said she made the decision to phone police immediately.

Police seized the plants that day.

He said the plants were about 1.5 metres tall and were "near harvest".

The spokesman applauded the girl "for her stand against drugs" in the "catch-22" situation.

"She was confronted with an ethical dilemma. So often we say the older generation are wiser than the younger. Maybe we didn't get that right."

He said the parents would be interviewed by police in coming days, and they were aware the plants had been seized.

:| Is that really something worth straining your relationship with your parents over?

Why would you tell the police? I'd just rip the plants out and throw them in the garbage or compost. I'm assuming NZ is more lenient with stuff like pot than the US is, but still. Where would you live if your parents went to jail for possession? Or lost their jobs? She's not smart, she's just a smart-ass.

Maybe her parents were already kicking her out of the house, and this was her revenge.

I love how they're applauding her for the deed. Lets be real, drugs shouldn't be illegal. I hope that girl can make it on her own.

What an awful kid. If I was in that situation I would call them up and discuss with them, but not the f*cking cops..

#10 Posted by jimkabrhel (15432 posts) -

I'm indifferent when it comes to pot, but you talk to your parents about it first before calling the cops. That's a pretty low move.

I would have sold the plants lol.

This is obviously a case of revenge, not being a good samaritan.

What a waste of weed.She should have smoked it instead.

#16 Posted by AncientDozer (8129 posts) -
I hope her parents go to jail and she's left all alone and unable to take care of herself. That will make things hilarious and ironic and teach a valuable lesson on life choices. And Irony.

I really hope I never end up raising a kid like her.

Kind of a douchey thing to do, but thats what the parents get for growing illegal substances in their back yard. The parents have nobody to blame but themselves.

Even if you were living under their roof? That would backfire on you pretty badly
#23 Posted by airshocker (30978 posts) -

That's a pretty petty thing to get your parents in trouble over. I mean, why not just throw the plants away?

This. She upheld justice. Even when her own parents were the criminals. She should be proud.

I'm more interested in the phrase "dob in" as a synonym for snitch.  I like the sound of it.  Is that just a New Zealand thing?

I don't condone growing weed in your backyard, but she honestly never thought of talking about this with her parents first? And it'd be one thing to narc on someone you don't know or a neighbor or something, but those are the people who raised you... give them a break.

#35 Posted by Stesilaus (3549 posts) -

The girl's parents were away for the Easter break and she had found the plants with visiting friends.

Artice

The parents can simply claim that, in their absence, their daughter or her visiting friends "planted" the evidence as an act of spite.

That may well be what really happened.

Can't say I'm sympathetic for the parents, Though it probuably wasn't wise of the girl to girl snitch on her parents considering she lives/lived under their roof. family events are going to be alot more awkward I imagine.

They are adults, they should have known better in the first place. Oh well the parents get what they deserve.

Why is everyone acting like weed is meth?
#42 Posted by Laihendi (5834 posts) -
If the parents had actually been doing something wrong then it would have right for her to report them, but to report them for growing a plant is stupid.

Why are many acting as if the law is always good? Anyways I would have disowned her and put her for adoption.

Don't have to put her up for adoption, you can kick her a** outta there, shes 18. Have fun living, b*tch!

If she had that much of a problem with them, she should have just destroyed them.

Filthy rat.

Another forum I go to. That's where I get most of the outlandish stuff

Man that's some low stuff there, snitching on your parents. I mean if it was heroine or something, yeah ok, I understand. But weed? Beer is more dangerous for crying out loud.

You pirate games, you're a thief/rationalize theft

You report drug brewers, and you're a nerd

Coherence isn't your strong point, is it Alj?
