Farmington, Conn – We post about some real stupid people on this site, but rarely do we get stories featuring the level of dumb as Robert J. Michelson. The man waited until after he spent a good amount buying items to grow marijuana before calling 911 to ask them for legal advice. He wanted to know if what he was doing was illegal. You can listen to the call here, but this is the transcript of the call he made last Thursday evening:
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?
Michelson: I was just growing some marijuana and I was just wondering what, how much trouble you can get in for one plant.
Dispatcher: You’re growing marijuana and you want to know…depends on how big the plant is?
Michelson: It’s only a seedling.
Dispatcher: Well, it’s possession. You can get pinched for a roach in the car.
Michelson: All right, thanks for the info.
Now not only is he out of his weed, he’s also been charged with illegal cultivation, possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Cops traced his call to 911 to his address and found a bit of pot as well as the items he had bought to grow and smoke it. Derp.
