Florida Keys Woman Called Sheriff's Deputy and Tried to Sell Him Weed, Police Say

â€‹If you're running low on people to sell your weed to, you might as well try selling it to the cops.
At least that's what 39-year-old Jennifer Knopp ended up doing, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
MCSO Deputy Christian Galls was hanging out at the po-lice substation in Marathon last night around 9:15 p.m. when Knopp -- whom the deputy had known from a previous case -- called him and said she "had the stuff he was looking for."
The cops did want the weed but presumably didn't intend to buy it or smoke it.
MCSO Deputy Becky Herrin says Knopp offered to sell some marijuana to Deputy Galls and asked where he wanted to meet.
Galls said he'd call her back, whereupon he phoned up the narcotics detective, then called Knopp to set up a meeting behind a movie theater, Herrin says.
When Galls and another deputy rolled up to the movies, that's apparently when Knopp realized she just tried to sell weed to the cops and attempted to drive away, police say.
The deputies got back in their patrol car and pulled her over and, naturally, asked her why the hell she was trying to sell weed to sheriff's deputies.
Knopp's brilliant plan, she told the deputies, was to sell some weed to the cops because he was hoping that Galls "would help her get away from the man who was in the car with her," according to police.
Well, it worked -- she went to jail, and the man in the car was released without any charges.
The deputies found 24.5 grams of weed in Knopp's purse and also seized the $309 she had for possible forfeiture for banking off of pot sales, Herrin says.
Knopp faces charges of possessing more than 20 grams of marijuana, possessing drug equipment, and selling narcotics.
Pot grows, but Calif judge rules it's not a crop

And the stupidity continues with stupid decisions like this going on. Who knew a plant wasn't a plant apparently?
It grows in the ground, requires sunshine and water to blossom and earns California growers an estimated $17 billion a year. But don't call marijuana an agricultural crop in Tulare County.
The Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/pwDIGg) reports that a judge ruled this week against a medical marijuana-growing collective that wanted to operate on land zoned for agriculture.
Tulare County Counsel Kathleen Bales-Lange says it's the first time that courts have addressed whether marijuana can be classified as an agricultural crop. California voters legalized pot for medicinal purposes in 1996.
The case began when the county Board of Supervisors sued the Foothill Growers Association, which operated in an agriculture-zoned building.
In a ruling finalized Tuesday, Judge Paul Vortmann said the act of growing a controlled substance is not an agricultural use of property.

Fullerton police are looking for three men who allegedly set up a fake medical marijuana dispensary in an office building, placed a large order of marijuana from a courier and then robbed him.
“They set up a ruse,” said Sgt. Andrew Goodrich. “Kind of like calling for Domino's and then robbing the pizza driver.”
The men taped a green cross -- an identifying symbol adopted by many medical marijuana dispensaries -- on the front door of a building in an industrial part of town, Goodrich said. When the deliveryman arrived carrying several pounds of medical marijuana, the three men attacked and pistol-whipped him.
The three eventually got away with about nine pounds of marijuana worth around $20,000 -- about half of what the deliveryman had with him.

Teen Turns In Father On Marijuana Growing Charges

When you can even trust your own kids, who can you trust?
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - A Murfreesboro father is in trouble after his own son turned him in for growing marijuana.
Police went to the family home after the 15-year-old called to report allegations of physical abuse. When officers arrived the teen handed them a marijuana plant growing in a small flower pot. Inside the home, police found several plants in two illegal grow operations and arrested the father.
"The juvenile went inside and came out with a marijuana plant that was part of a grow operation inside the house," said Kyle Evans with Murfreesboro Police.
In an exclusive interview the teen's father told NewsChannel 5: "I could not believe my son would turn against his father like that."
The father denied physically abusing his son and said the teen and his three siblings were never exposed to the marijuana. The father said he grew the drug to use himself for pain from severe burns he suffered years ago.
Police did not find any evidence of physical child abuse. However, the father does face felony drug charges.
In addition to the marijuana plants and grow lights, Murfreesboro police also confiscated scales and supply of processed marijuana from the home. There's no indication the suspect was growing the marijuana to sell.
