Hernando County Jail Intake Booking
Brooksville, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Ida May Wallace, a 60-year-old Brooksville Grandmother was arrested Tuesday after the woman's daughter and granddaughter turned her in for growing pot plants in her back yard.
Hernando County deputies responded to the woman's home after receiving a report of a "verbal disturbance," according to the arrest report.
When officers arrived at the residence, they were met by Wallace, her daughter and her granddaughter who had reportedly been arguing. Deputies interviewed the daughter and granddaughter who both them Wallace was growing pot plants in the backyard.
When the deputy asked Wallace about the alleged plants, she openly admitted to possessing them and offered to show them to the deputy, according to the arrest report. She then lead the deputy to the backyard to reveal 13 marijuana plants ranging from 5" to 14" in size.
Wallace was taken into custody and booked into the Hernando County Jail on a charge of cultivating marijuana.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Well, here we go again. Our monthly case of family members who are turning in their own parents - and now even their grandparents - for growing a pot plant.
It seems now you can't hardly get kids raised and out on their own before they're back in your shorts, turning you in "for your own good"...
