Utah Kids Call Cops After Finding Dad's Marijuana Stash

|


Less than a month after father's day, a Salt Lake City man was arrested for pot possession when his 12- and 13-year-old kids turned him in to the police. 

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, dad "faces two third-degree felony charges of child endangerment and one class B misdemeanor for possession of a controlled substance."

While Salt Lake City proper apparently doesn't have a D.A.R.E. program, the executive director of Utah D.A.R.E. told Reason that she hadn't heard about the arrest, that "parents are going to do what they're going to do" and that the D.A.R.E. program "teaches life skills" to kids. One of which is narcing on your parents. (The Salt Lake City youths mentioned above didn't need D.A.R.E. to develop that one.)
