Youth Turns in Parents for Growing MarijuanaChris | InformationLiberation
Welcome to Soviet Amerika, where children turn their parents in to the government for the "crime" of smoking marijuana.
A Doylestown Township dad whose teenage son tipped off police to his indoor marijuana garden was sentenced, along with his wife, in Bucks County Court on Friday.As a poster on reddit commented on their apology, it sounds like something someone would say in a re-education camp.
Joseph Medvedik, 50, was sentenced to four to 23 months in the county prison. Judge John Rufe ruled that Medvedik must serve the first 15 days behind bars, then the remaining on house arrest.
His wife, Caren Shanfeld, 45, was sentenced to two years of probation with 40 hours of community service.
Both pleaded guilty to drug possession and child endangerment charges in November. They were arrested in May, after Medvedik’s 15-year-old son called police, then escorted officers into the basement, where they found 18 plants growing in a room equipped with special insulation, circulating fans, halide lamps and other equipment used in the indoor farming of marijuana.
[...]Shanfeld wept as she described the shame of being arrested and having child protective service agents monitoring their home.
“It’s been an overwhelming experience,” Shanfeld told the judge.
“Clearly, I made an error in judgment. I kidded myself that the occasional use of marijuana was OK, and that if my kids did not have access to it, it was OK. I think marijuana should not be around anyone’s children, including my own.”
This is unfortunately far from an isolated incident, I covered a similar case two years ago in my article, "D.A.R.E. to Snitch on Your Parents and Get Taken by Social Services."
Young children, perhaps this very child, are taught in school through the D.A.R.E. program to turn in their parents for drug usage, including marijuana. Once they turn them in, the kids become wards of the state. Welcome to the "land of the free."
