"She was a very brave, very smart, very articulate little girl," officer Ryan Beattie told the paper. "It was almost like interviewing an adult. She appeared to have intelligence far above a normal little girl [and] she gave some pretty specific information about things, like types of drug paraphernalia, that no young person ought to have knowledge about."A subsequent search of the home revealed seven marijuana plants under the house, drug paraphernalia and other suspected substances, WAOW reports. Charges hadn't yet been filed Monday morning, pending a lab analysis of the plants. The girl is currently staying with her grandparents. Now let me tell you why they deserve to be thrown up under the jail. One, why in the hell does this little girl know where they planted these plants. It just don't make sense to know that what your doing is wrong and you don't even have common sense enough to do it discreetly. Second, why would this child know about the different paraphernalia enough to describe it to police officers. Third, why would you be smoking around this child to the point that it's making her feel ill. What I've learned is people these days don't care enough. There is not enough respect going around.
9-Year-Old Girl Busts Pot Operation
In dumb crime news, a 9-year-old girl's parents were allegedly growing marijuana under their Minnesota home. The girl entered a police station in Barnesville over the weekend and calmly told officers that her folks were growing weed and selling it, according to the Star Tribune. The girl reportedly said she wanted a change because the smell of the pot smoke made her feel sick. She was worried about the family dog's health, too, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
