Man Asks 911 About Marijuana Cultivation [VIDEO]

While it isn’t written down anywhere, there is most certainly a list of questions you don’t ask the police. Top among these questions is, “How much trouble could I get into for this marijuana plant I’m growing in my closet?”

It seems obvious not to ask a 911 operator such a thing. For everyone but this guy.

According to – that’s right – the police, Robert Michelson of Farmington, Conn., called 911 to ask for legal advice. Here’s an excerpt, but you can hear the whole thing below.

Dispatcher: 911, what’s your emergency?

Michelson: Uh, let’s not get into that yet.

Dispatcher: If it’s not an emergency you don’t call 911 sir.

Michelson: Well, I have a legal question.

Dispatcher: Is it life threatening or an active crime in progress?

Michelson: Crime in progress possibly.

Dispatcher: What’s going on?

At this point, Michelson admits to growing marijuana, “just a seedling,” and thanks the 911 operator for the legal heads-up. Unfortunately for Michelson, the operator had traced the call and sent over some associates to have a look.

After finding some cultivation and smoking¬†paraphernalia, and, er, a marijuana seedling, Michelson was arrested. Lucky for him, stupidity isn’t among the charges.
