Daddy Needed Your Money, Honey

Imagine getting some money for your birthday and dreaming of what to buy with it – a bike? A computer game? A baseball glove? But then your dad decides to take it and buy marijuana with it instead. Nice guy.

Take the example of the man in Morgan Wyoming who was arrested in early October 2012 for endangerment of a child and possession of a firearm by a restricted person, both third-degree felonies, as well as possession of a controlled substance, a class A misdemeanor, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class B misdemeanor. He was pulled over for a traffic violation because the light over his license plate was burned out – something a lot of people might not even pay regular attention to. The officer had a police dog that smelled marijuana, leading to the bust.

But wait, there’s more! Andrew Mook didn’t have a driver’s license so he had recruited his 16-year-old brother-in-law who had only been driving for a few months, to take him over to Ogden. Mook had taken the money that his 7 year old son had received as a birthday gift and hightailed it to a location where he could purchase marijuana. His 7 year old and a 2 year old were in the car with the two men when they were stopped on I-84.

The backpack in the car contained about a half-pound of marijuana and three smaller bags with about 3 grams each; there was also a 9 mm handgun in the car.

It’s a toss up whether his son or his wife is going to be angry about this the longest. No doubt they will remember it long past the sentencing and any incarceration.

Addicts need their fix. It doesn’t matter how they come up with the money or the stuff, they are going to do so. Think about that before you consider trying drugs of any sort, or before you consider continuing. Talk to your kids and your friends and loved ones – be assertive! It’s a dangerous situation, and even with the “lesser” drug of marijuana, it can lead people to do some pretty selfish things.
