A German teen called the cops on his mom on Monday for growing cannabis plants.

Yes, you read that right.

In a strange twist on the classic tale, a 15-year-old reported his mother to authorities after confirming online that the plants she was growing at home were, in fact, cannabis.

Police said they found 19 plants as tall as 1.5 meters (or about five feet) at the woman’s home near Frankfurt in Germany.

They proceeded to open an investigation on the mother, who became so furious at her son that he had to be taken into protective custody “for some time.”

It's safe to say family dinners will be sufficiently awkward going forward.
