Kindergartener Takes His Dad's Pot To School In His Backpack
"Police in Florida said they arrested the father of a 6-year-old whose backpack was found to contain more than 3 ounces of marijuana and a scale.
St. Petersburg police spokesman said the kindergartener showed the drugs and the scale to a teacher Tuesday at Campbell Park Elementary Marine Science Center, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Wednesday.
Police said the child`s father, Larry Cornelius Stephens, 25, claimed ownership of the drugs and was arrested on charges of child abuse and possession of marijuana with intent to sell."
It will be hard for Stephens to convince a jury that the pot was only for his personal use, he wouldn`t need a scale if he wasn`t intending to sell the marijuana. A dude who has a stash for his own use only, doesn`t need a scale, he will roll his joint as fat as possible.
The father was quick to claim that the pot was his, he wanted to protect his son from being arrested. However, if the kid`s backpack also contained four bags of Doritos, a couple of Twinkies, and a cupcake,I`d say the little freak was smoking the dope.
The father was arrested for possessing marijuana with the intent to sell, and for child endangerment. Homeboy should have hid his stash where it would never have been found by his young son.
When he gets out of jail on bail, he should spank his kid for taking his pot to school. If he doesn`t discipline his son, next the little brat might take his booze or his adult movies to school.
