A German Teen Called The Cops On His Mom For Growing Weed

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.

This Massachusetts Democrat - and 2020 presidential candidate - has a strong history of supporting veterans' access to medical marijuana. Over the years, Congressman Seth Moulton has acted as the primary sponsor on three cannabis-related bills—all of them focusing on improving veteran access to medical marijuana. As an Iraq War vet himself, Moulton has taken a strong stance in supporting the health and well-being of other veterans who continue to be barred from accessing medical marijuana - even in states where it's legal - because federal prohibition prevents Veterans Affairs from letting vets use medical cannabis.
