    Woah, that sucks. But that`s what he gets for being so jumpy...=P.
    But I guess I would of also poo bricks if the cops came over and I was growing me some weed. Also I thought cops were not welcome to just search your house like that. Also going to jail for growing a plant is stupid.

    Pretty much anytime 911 is called and no one replies, They go in expecting the worst and a search is initiated.

    Working for a 911 center, a good portion of our non-emergency 911 calls from small children allowed to play with phones... more so old cell phones which can still dial 911 even when not in service. Hopefully this child will have a better home now.

    im glad the kid went to his mother... im sorry but..only a bad father would grow marijuana in the same house that his 11 month old son lives in with him... all sorts of bad people are involved in drugs, and who knows what could have happened over more time.

    I think they are allowed if they seriously suspect something, they dont need a warrent then...i think they only need a warrent if they actually want to move stuff, and have a really thorough search, but im not sure...
    and with the way the guy would have been acting, they would have been too suspicious to just let it slip.

    Well normally, if someone calls the police, and just hangs up, that normally gives cause for "huh?" and they try to call back. If no one answers (even if it was like 2 seconds after the call came in) they send someone to investigate, sometimes people can`t talk if like a burglar comes to your house. That would mean they would have probable cause to enter the home. If it is for the immediate safety of the people inside, they are within their right to go into the house. Afterward, seeing the guy act all dodgy and nervous again has probable cause to do a small search. Doesn`t mean they have to take anything, just witness it. After seeing the pot, pretty much the game was up :P

    I`m all for smoking pot, but selling it is in fact a dangerous business. Drugs are drugs. If he had been growing a tiny plant in the kitchen that was clearly for personal use, then I would say big deal. But 500 plants is clearly intended to be sold. So have fun in jail you douchebag parent.

    F/CK the police now that kid doesnt have a dad... Who gives a sh/t if he was doing something ILLEGAL in.. (oh god forbid) the same house as a baby!?

    What difference does it make if it`s illegal? How does the growth of pot plants differ from him growing 500 ferns in the house with the baby?

    Illegality does not harm the kid in any way, but losing your dad for the majority of your young life definitely does.

    You might take 2 seconds to think about it before that sort of comment. If the kid can play with the phone, he can play with the plants; if he eats a bud or two (which he may well do because they smell quite sweet) he`d be dead in seconds.

    For everyone`s information.

    According to which US Government authority you want to believe, the lethal dose of marijuana is either about one-third your body weight, or about 1,500 pounds, consumed all at once.

    But non the less it would most definitely not be good for a developing child.

    Boadicea, that`s the thing. If it was one plant, then the cops probably wouldn`t have done anything, just mentioned to keep it out of reach of the kid.

    Legally speaking, a person is allowed to hold up to 16 grams in Canada without it being a big problem. Once you get above that, they consider it intent to traffic, and you could be in HUGE trouble.

    And yes, Canada`s the highest pot-smoking rate in the world. Stupid, eh? (Personally, I don`t see why marijuana should be illegal when much more harmful chemicals are readily available in cigarettes.)

    First and foremost I think the dad got what was coming to him. It didn`t sound like he was paying very close attention to his 11-month-old and perhaps was a bit distracted by the thousands of dollars worth of pot he was growing. So eff him.

    Secondly, that sounds like all kinds of civil liberty violations! "It became obvious what had happened" then they went ahead and searched because he was acting nervous! No one answered the door so they let themselves in! Perhaps he was just so scared that he let the police look around til they caught him. It seems like a simple "I want you to leave," or "you can`t look around" would`ve either stopped them or forced them to break the law in order to catch him.

    Anyway, like I said, eff him. He deserves it.
